After the recall of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 whose batteries went up in flame last year, many kept their fingers crossed to see how Samsung will respond to the serious setback. The South Korean tech giant responded strongly and released some smartphones that are currently doing very well. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of them. The Galaxy Note 8 is Samsung’s first new phablet in two years and reports from South Korea indicates that it has this device has brought in over 850,000 pre-orders for the company which is way higher than the 400,000 pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 7 last year.
This phablet which was only released last month is sustaining a very strong momentum as it records 10,000-20,000 units sales per day in South Korea which makes it the most popular smartphone in the market. The performance of this device is not entirely surprising because it has a very loyal fanbase and the phone is quite amazing too. Over the second week of October, the 64GB Galaxy Note 8 offered by SK Telecom recorded the highest number of sales according to the latest data from ATLAS Research & Consulting.
Within October, Galaxy Note 8 sales represent a whopping 28.3% of all smartphone sales in South Korea and this figure will probably go higher when the 256GB model drops. The Galaxy Note 8 is performing just like the Galaxy S8 which is currently Samsung’s pride.
