The Galaxy S20 series of smartphones, released earlier this year, is undoubtedly one of the most watched Android flagship devices in the first half of 2020. However, with the global outbreak of COVID-19 caused by the new corona virus, sales of the Galaxy S20 in the Home market in South Korea have also turned out to be dismal. South Korean media reported that Samsung has “aggressively” cut the demand for parts for the Galaxy S20 smart machine as a result of the surge in demand.
Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S20 series of smartphones has seen sales this year worse than last year’s Galaxy S10 series.
Clearly, in the face of an outbreak, it is not just the supply chain that is affected. It has been proved that the crisis caused by the new corona virus is seriously detrimental to the sale of products.
South Korean media recently reported that the Galaxy S20 series smartphone has a backlog, suggesting it could become the most unfortunate Samsung flagship device ever.
For consumers, this is not the best time to splurge on expensive digital products, but rather to focus more on the purchase of food and necessities hoarding.
In terms of sales strategy, Samsung has made bold changes to this year’s Galaxy S20 series, such as removing the entry-level “S20e” option.
The company had high hopes for sales of the Galaxy S20 Plus model, and consumers preferred the Galaxy S20 Ultra model with a 108-megapixel master, with orders exceeding 50 percent.
Industry sources said Samsung had also ‘completely’ cut demand for Galaxy S20 parts, meaning the outbreak was not the only factor affecting the company’s follow-up policy.
Clearly, linear errors estimate the direction of consumer demand, and people seem to prefer the S20 Ultra with a 6.9-inch screen, built-in 5000mAh battery, and a powerful rear quad.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 series smart series will also have to face more competition with the release of competition such as the Huawei P40/40 Pro.
