Over 10 million Galaxy S7 pre-orders placed in China so far

Chinese consumers pre-ordered 10 million Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge units

The pre-order period in China started on March 11th, will last until the 18th, and until then more than 15 million orders could be placed.

As we already know, Samsung managed to sell about 100,000 Galaxy S7 units in South Korea during the first two days these new flagships have spent on that market. On the other hand, the fact that China will add at least one more digit to that number is no surprise, given its size. However, the amount of orders already placed in advance of the official launch is impressive - apparently over 10 million already, in less than a week.

In China, pre-orders for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge have begun on March 11th. Eight major retail channels are taking pre-orders and more than 6.35 million units have been reserved via JD.com. While Gome and Lynx already sold out their inventory, pre-orders at Suning crossed 1.3 million units. All in all, more than 10 million units should have been reserved already and it would not be a surprise to see the number reaching 15 million by March 18th.

Samsung mobile head DJ Koh recently said they have big hopes for the Chinese market and it looks like he was right to say so. We should have more Galaxy S7 pre-order and sale numbers soon, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
