Out of the total annual sales of 50.4 million units of Galaxy S8 series smartphone, the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ alone is touted to occupy 27.1 million units which is around 53.9 percent, as per Yuanta Securities report.
Galaxy S8+ has been receiving more attention owing to its bigger screen size as well as better RAM capacity. Samsung released Galaxy S8+ in two versions — one with 4GB RAM and 64GB and the other with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
