Scheduled to arrive in South Korean stores on August 23, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (and the Note 10+ models) is already twice as popular as the Galaxy Note 9. During the period that started on August 9 and ended yesterday, South Korean customers were able to place no less than 1.3 million pre-orders.

Despite its various issues, the Galaxy Note 9 received quite a few "Best Phone of the Year" awards until now and remains a popular device in its niche. In South Korea, last year's flagship was pre-ordered by more than 600,000 people, but now the Galaxy Note 10 has easily broken the 1 million pre-orders barrier. In fact, South Korean customers placed more than 1.3 million pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 10 and the Note 10+ combined.

According to The Korea Herald, the most popular model during the pre-order period that has begun on August 9 and ended yesterday was the 256 GB Galaxy Note 10+ in Aura Glow. The three local carriers that have the Galaxy Note 10 in their portfolio have set the subsidies at least at the equivalent of US$232, but they can easily exceed US$300 — depending on the mobile plan chosen for the phablet, of course. 

The full prices of the Galaxy Note 10 devices in South Korea start at US$992 (Note 10 5G) and go all the way up to the equivalent of US$1,240 (Galaxy Note 10+ 5G). The most popular model mentioned above has a price tag of around US$1,160. Depending on the carrier, the pre-orders for Galaxy Note 10 phablets can come with various freebies such as a wireless charging pad, a Galaxy Fit, a Clear View cover, and more.

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.
