While it may not be as exciting and impressive as the Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X, the Galaxy S10 will no doubt emerge as one of the best Android smartphones of 2019. Although the device is only just a few days old and is only about now reaching the hands of early adopters, indications have emerged the device could be having a rosy reception, at least in China.
While we cannot verify source of the information, the often reliable Chinese tipster Ice Universe has revealed that the Galaxy S10 pre-orders in the first two hours in China were twice as high as what the Galaxy S9 managed in its first day of pre-order. If this is any indication, the stats could mean a very welcoming reception for the Korean giant in the Chinese market.
In China, Samsung just opened the S10 pre-sale, Samsung S10/S10+ 2-hour pre-sale = S9/S9+ 24-hour pre-sale × 2 🙂

While that’s a pretty significant improvement, there is a possible factor that might have contributed to the difference, that should be noted, and that, of course, is the fact that the Galaxy S10 family has a third variant that offers almost everything the S10 and S10 Plus have, at a lower price. Do not that the tipster gives no breakdown of the model that gets the more patronage, the S10e and S10 are however likely to be in the good books of the S10 lovers.
