Latest reports from Samsung regarding the pre-orders of Galaxy Note 8 proved to be a great solace for the firm. The successor of Galaxy Note 7(R.I.P) bagged nearly 400,000 pre-orders on the day one in South Korea. Consequently, cracking all the pre-order records of the smartphone giant ever had. And, still more records to break once it really hits the market.
Precisely, the Galaxy Note 8 was up for pre-order since the last thursday in its home-town, South Korea. According to Samsung, specifically 395,000 costumers applied to purchase the phablet yesterday. Interestingly, its ill-fated predecessor managed to draw only 380,000 preorders over a 13-day pre order period. Look at the margin between the two immediate descendants of Note series. Evidently, it’s a tremendous starting for the 2017 Note hunk.
