The latest Samsung’s flagship, Galaxy Note 8 sets presale records. This is great news for the company, especially considering the Note 7 fiasco.
It seems the Note fans forgot the whole Note 7 debacle. The phone was introduced in August 2016 and launched in September 2016. Samsung had to make a really tough decision. The phone was discontinued after many reports of overheating and catching fire.
But, Samsung didn’t want to give up the Note series. The company launched Note 8 just a few weeks ago. Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders started on August 24, and the phone is already setting presale records.
Samsung announced that more people in the United States have purchased their latest flagship Note 8 than any of the previous Note models in the same period in the past. However, the company didn’t provide any numbers for the sales.
“We’re thrilled to see the strong consumer response to the next level Note,” Samsung Electronics North America president and chief executive officer Tim Baxter said.
“Today’s consumers want to do bigger things in work and life, and Note helps make that possible. We built the Galaxy Note8 for people who desire a device that lets them be productive and allows for self-expression,” he added.
This comes right after the news the Note 8 received almost 400.000 pre-orders on the very first day of pre-orders in South Korea.
Note 8 is one of the most expensive Samsung’s phones ever made. Its price starts at $930. The phone features 6.3-inch infinity display, dual 12 MP front camera, 8 MP front camera, 6 GB RAM, 64 GB inbuilt storage and the SD card slot. It comes with Exynos 8895 processor, 3300 mAh battery, the S Pen with greater sensitivity and it runs Android 7.1.
Samsung is all set to launch their latest flagship in India. The company will hold the event on September 12 in New Delhi.
