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

Samsung Galaxy S8 pre-orders in the US establish a new record

The recently released Galaxy S8 flagships seem to break the previous records everywhere since Samsung Electronics America also reported a 30 percent year-over-year growth in pre-orders.

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.

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.
