Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders in the US break previous record

Samsung Galaxy S8 and its companion known as Galaxy S8 Plus are not perfect, but both flagships have been well received, and the pre-orders hit new highs in most markets. As expected, the US is no exception, but the gap between the new record and last year's Galaxy S7/S7 Edge pre-orders is quite impressive.

According to an email that Samsung Electronic America's President and COO Tim Baxter recently sent, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ managed to achieve "more than 30 percent year-over-year growth in pre-orders versus the record pre-orders we had with Galaxy S7." Sadly, he did not reveal the detailed figures.

The Galaxy S8 flagships have no problems with their battery, but their display. A red tint has been reported many times, and Samsung claims this is nothing more but a software issue that would be fixed by an update soon.

Those who skip the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ now will be able to get the Note 8 this fall, especially large screen lovers, since the next-gen Note is expected to feature a 6.4-inch display.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
