"The tech giant has requested its partners to supply (parts) based on the tech giant's 60 million shipment goal", a different source told The Investor in a separate story. The phone is likely to be released in Mid-April (possibly by the third week) to consumers, as new reports suggest.

With speculation that Samsung will make standard the dual-curved-edge screen previously used only for its edge models, it's unlikely that the company will continue to distinguish between its Galaxy S-series models in this manner.

The Galaxy S3 had actually recorded no less than 65 million sales during the year of its launch.

The Galaxy S8, due to drop sometime after Mobile World Congress next month if Samsung sticks to its spring-fall schedule for major phone releases, would be the natural platform to debut both of these services. Moreover, there's news that Samsung has been developing a new processor called the Exynos 8995 for the Samsung S8 which could very well arrive in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be announced in early 2017.

Currently, the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge is being sold in Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, India, and the United States. 60 million units might seem like an extremely ambitious target, but Samsung has surpassed that number with their Galaxy S4 back in 2013.

There Galaxy S8 is also expected to be the first Samsung smartphone to pack a Siri-esque built-in AI assistant, as well as the first to dump the headphone jack in favour of USB-C.

This should allow Galaxy S8 users to access and use other third-party services through its new virtual assistant.

"The industry's first mass production of 10nm technology demonstrates our leadership in advanced process technology", said Jong Shik Yoon, executive vice president and head of Foundry Business at Samsung, in the statement. We are all waiting to see not only what Samsung plans to introduce in terms of new features, but also to hear what they have to done to avoid a Note 7 situation with their new phone. Excitement levels for the S8's release grew bigger.
