There is a shortage of components and smartphone manufacturers have to use what they have more rationally. It is this factor that can lead to the abandonment of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, when the company has to choose priority devices that will get the Snapdragon 888 chipset. Rumor has it that the shortage of components will be felt at the beginning of next year, so Samsung needs to carefully approach the volume of production of devices Galaxy S22 series.
According to The Elec, in the new generation of flagships, priority will be for the Galaxy S22. It will be the most compact and affordable device of the new series, with which the main hopes for high sales are pinned. According to rumors, 50-60% of the company’s production capacity will be used for the production of this model. As for the Galaxy S22 +, it will have 20-30% and the Galaxy S22 Ultra – 20%.
Compared to the Galaxy S21 series, they also relied on the base model of the series, but the production volume was 40%. While 30% fell on Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Unfortunately for the company, the Ultra version didn’t come out and it barely managed to sell half of the manufactured devices.
In total, Samsung plans to produce 20 million devices of the Galaxy S22 series, which is quite modest for a top line. In the face of a lack of components and a persistent pandemic; we have to take a more deliberate approach to the production of smartphones.
