Samsung has not been doing very well with the sales of its Galaxy Note20 series, reports from South Korea reveal. According to insiders, the manufacturer was expected to produce around 900,000 units in October but demand was weaker than anticipated so it cut the number down to 600,000 units.
The Korean source reveals the number is both for the regular Galaxy Note20 and the Galaxy Note20 Ultra. It's speculated that the poor performance of the cheaper model is taking the overall number down.
Samsung managed to report a 50% yearly increase in operating profit for Q3 2020 but given the underperforming Note flagship it may be unable to sustain it in Q4.
On the other hand the reduction in Note20 production allows factories in South Korea to be prepared for the initial yield of Galaxy S21 flagships, with first reports pointing at 2 million unit run.
You know, I was going to buy Note 20 Ultra if it wasn't this Exynos issue. I am living in Exynos region unfortunately. Now I heard that S21 are not including charger. Seems like I wont be changing my note 8 anytime soon.
I actually bought the Note 20 Ultra and returned it because it wasn't that much better than my OP6T, and surprisingly neither was the camera in reality. I spent ages reading reviews, comparing camera pictures between phone models but in reality ...
Samsung phone going up very expensive each year.
