Many people thought that when the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 came out it would go on to be the best-seller. However when the batteries caught fire this wasn’t to be. Samsung have had to recall around 2.5 million units of the Note 7 and they replaced the handsets. This is when things got worse for the company due to the fact that the replacements were just as bad and they were reported to overheat and explode. This led to Samsung calling it a day for the new Note.
This has meant that Samsung has lost many billions of dollars. Now it has been said that the company is going to combat the loss as they are going to increase sales of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. They are hoping that sales of the Galaxy A8 is going to help too.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is the flagship handset and there is plenty of demand for it worldwide. The S7 isn’t too far away from the Note 7 so increasing the production of it may help Samsung during quarter 3 and 4.
