"We set the initial supply of Galaxy S8 double the Galaxy S7. Since we are preparing the supply without difficulty, there will be no issue of supply delay," said Koh Dong-jin, Samsung Electronics' mobile business chief to Korea Herald.

 

Although Samsung is preparing for record-breaking sales, some analysts disagree. KB Investment & Securities predicts that Samsung will sell 46 million units this year, which is a similar level to the Galaxy S7.
