"The Galaxy S7 is slated to go on sale in 60 countries on March 11. We expect its sales to surpass shipments of the previous model, the Galaxy S6," said DJ Koh, head of Samsung Mobiles Communication, to Yonhap News. Koh reportedly also added that the Galaxy S7 would be priced higher than its predecessor - the Galaxy S6.

The first month is said to be crucial for the company, explaining Samsung is giving a free Gear VR headset to those who have pre-ordered or bought the smartphones between February 23 and March 18. As per estimations made by some analysts, Samsung should have sold around 38 million Galaxy S6 units in 2015. However, with the inclusion of some previously missing features, Samsung might go beyond the 38 million sales mark with its Galaxy S7 models.
