Enterprise customers are expected to snap up the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ that hit store shelves today, given the phones’ strong focus on worker productivity as well as security.
IDC analyst Bryan Bassett predicted that “millions” of enterprise customers will buy one of the devices, some of them partly out of the pent-up demand created when the enterprise-focused Note7 was recalled globally after some units overheated and caught fire.
“Samsung won’t have any trouble selling these devices and they will do well with both consumers and businesses,” Bassett said in an interview. “Business users are very eager to get their hands on the S8, especially after the Note7 recalls. They will especially want this slick and gorgeous device.”
