The electronic giant Samsung seems to be taking a big step on its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone. As per a report on a report on Naver website, the company will be delivering as many as 10 million units for the smartphone originally.

Well, the reports also added that out of these 10 million Galaxy S8 units, approximately 4.7 million units will go into production in March and 7.8 million units in April this year. Still no information about the Galaxy S8+ has been given that will it also follow the same production schedule or not.

The company radically augmented the production, resulting in the component makers to increase their yield, as per one of the camera part suppliers for the handset. If few previous reports from ET News are to be believed, Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S8 smartphones in numerous markets all together. This also means that it won't prefer South Korea this time for the first launch.

The company lately exposed the launch date of upcoming flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 at its pre-MWC 2017 conference. The company's Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on March 29 11:00 AM EDT (08.30 PM IST) in New York. The Galaxy S8 launch event will also be live streamed on the company's website very soon.

"On March 29, Samsung Electronics will unveil the newest Galaxy as part of its endeavour to unbox your phone. The forthcoming addition to the Galaxy lineup represents the start of a new era, by reshaping the device that has over the years become an indispensable tool in our everyday lives," reads Samsung's invite for the event.

Galaxy S8 hasn't proved to be a best-kept secret, so far. The phone has already appeared in numerous leaked images and through third-party retailer’s listings.
