Apple may have gained 5-7million users due to Galaxy 7 explosions

While Samsung may be going through one of the worst public relations disasters its mobile division has had, Apple will most likely cash in over the situation — big time.

Samsung has cancelled all production of the Galaxy Note 7, essentially meaning customers either have to choose another Samsung phone, or get a refund and get their phone from another manufacturer.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, that manufacturer will be Apple for as many as 5 million to 7 million people.

The report suggests that millions of people will flock to the iPhone 7 Plus because of the dual camera, which makes the Plus an attractive buy for many people that might have bought the Note 7 for its camera in the first place.
