- Adrian Ungureanu

Analysts from South Korea predicts that sales of the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus are expected to beat that of the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 as demand for wider screens comes as more users enjoy mobile games or video content on smartphones is on the rise.

According to the report released by Yuanta Securities, the annual sales of the Galaxy S8 smartphones are expected to reach 50.4 million units, with the Galaxy S8 Plus taking up 53.9 percent, or 27.1 million units.

Samsung released two versions of the Galaxy S8 Plus with 64GB and 128GB data capacities, while the smaller Galaxy S8 only comes in a 64GB model.

Samsung Electronics kicked off official sales of the new flagship smartphone series in Korea and the US last week.
