When Apple Inc. (AAPL - Get Report) releases its iPhone 8 later this year, electronics retailers will applaud the added traffic the new smartphone will generate. Electronics retailers rely on product innovation to drive growth.
Apple isn't the only saving grace that can drive traffic, however. Samsung Electronics Co.'s (SSNLF) Galaxy S8 phone sales are tracking better than its predecessor, 4K TV sales are rising steadily and Nintendo Co.'s (NTDOY) new Switch console is sold out in many locations.
Here is how much some retailers rely on new smartphone launches.
Dixons Carphone is the retailer best positioned to benefit from new smartphone launches as 31% of its revenue comes from smartphones.
Media Markt Saturn
About one-fifth of Media Markt's revenue comes from smartphones.
