Earlier today, Samsung Electronics unveiled the amount of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships sold globally so far - no less than 5 million units. In South Korea alone, pre-orders exceeded the one million mark.

By the end of May, Samsung's latest flagships will be available for purchase in 120 countries. The global rollout began on April 21, when South Korea, the US, and Canada received the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. European key markets such as France, Germany, and the UK followed one week later.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ still have to reach China. According to Samsung, this is going to happen in late May or early June.

Although it has only been around for less than a month, the Galaxy S8 lineup had to face a red-tint display issue that Samsung already solved via a software update. On the other hand, third parties who tested the handset concluded that the Galaxy S8 is Samsung's most fragile flagship to date.

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.
