Samsung Managed 550,000 Pre-Orders of Its Flagship Galaxy S8 Smartphone

Samsung Managed 550,000 Pre-Orders of Its Flagship Galaxy S8 Smartphone

South Korean appliance/tech company Samsung certainly hit the nail on the head with its latest Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, hitting a whopping 550,000 pre-orders in just 48 hours. The smartphone, which features the company’s latest tech such as a highly-developed digital assistant Bixby, a new f/1.7 camera lens, near-bezel-free front screen and more, is now in the running to be Samsung’s best selling phone, as the S7 is currently the best-selling mobile handset at 49 million units sold. Further, the 550,000 pre-orders is actually 5.5x more than the pre-orders of its 7-series predecessor.

Analysts are claiming that if production had not stopped due to the highly-flammable batteries, the Samsung Note 7 would have surpassed the S7′s popularity and been the brand’s top-seller. Seemingly therefore, the debacle concerning last year’s Note 7 did not dampen Samsung’s latest and greatest and will continue to sell in record numbers when it hits stores officially on April 21.
