In the report, the foreign media also said that Samsung has asked its local suppliers to set up production plans according to the target.
But the source also said Samsung could adjust its shipments targets for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 this year depending on market conditions.
Samsung Galaxy S9 series 43 million shipments target is also among analysts' expectations. Many analysts, including analysts of Market Research Institute CounterpointResearch, expect Samsung Galaxy S9 series to ship between 40 million and 43 million this year.
If the source's revelations are true, Samsung's target for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 shipments exceeds the sales volume of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 in the year they went on sale. Figures from the market research firm show that the Galaxy S8 series sold 41 million last year. But the target for the Galaxy S9 43 million is still lower than the Galaxy S7 series's sales volume in the year it went public. Market researchers expect the Galaxy S7 series to go on sale in 2016. It sold 48 million copies.
