While Samsung readies a series of software updates that will effectively brick any remaining Galaxy Note7s in circulation, some new numbers suggest there may be a lot more of them out there than we think. Or perhaps there just aren’t that many LG V20s.
Apteligent has released its tally for new Android flagship device launches in the second half of 2016, and the visuals are quite stunning.

This year that initial burst is followed by an equally steep decline as people rushed to return their handsets following a global recall.
