Galaxy Note 8 Record Pre-Orders
The Note brand is still going strong despite Samsung recalling Note 7 products and halting sales last year due to exploding batteries. Samsung have announced that even more clients in the US have pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 8 than any other Notes it has ever released.
At a convention in Korea where Samsung announced the Note 8’s release in its founding nation, Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh said it received 650,000 pre-orders within 5 days across the forty countries it very first launched in – 2.5 times faster compared to the Galaxy Note 7 release last year. Samsung hasn’t publicly announced the number for US only presales as of yet, so its hard to determine whether the US has kept up with this trend.
Note 8 pre-orders went live in the US on August 24th and the unit is actually one of Samsung’s most costly smartphones ever, beginning at an incredible $930 or ₹67,900.00 (Available Here in India). It’s incredibly expensive, although Samsung did attempt to offset the sale price with a few pre-sale offers. Pre-orders before September 24th qualify for a choice of a Gear 360 camera or maybe a wireless charging bundle, as well as Note 7 owners being offered a steep discount in case they traded in their present unit for the Note 8. Carriers such as T Mobile (USA) have also offered their very own deals, enticing buyers to register for the brand new line as well as a buy one get one free offer. Giving buyers the chance to get two Galaxy Note 8 smartphones for the price of one.
Judging by how popular the Note 7s were year before everything went down in a firey mess, it looks like little has deterred Note fans from upgrading – not even the price tag. Samsung didn’t mention how Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders compared to its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus launches from earlier this season.
