A few months ago, Apple officially released the iPhone 12 series. This series has four models and the Pro models have been its best sellers. According to Samsung, it will also release its Galaxy S21 series on January 14th. The pre-sales of this new series will also commence this month. According to an industry specialist, the iPhone 12 series sales will exceed the Galaxy S21 series.
Ross Young, who has 25 years of experience in the display industry was speaking with respect to the first three months of sales. He believes that the iPhone 12 series’ first three months’ sales record will be higher than that of the Galaxy S21 series. Furthermore, he claims that even the iPhone 12 mini (the worst-performing model of Apple’s four models) will be more popular than the Samsung Galaxy S21.
Obviously, this is a huge claim from Young and things may not entirely play out as he expects. Samsung is expecting huge competition in the market and the South Korean manufacturer seems to have a marketing strategy. The company has already announced that whoever pre-orders the Galaxy S21 Ultra will get the Galaxy Buds Pro and SmartTags for Free.
