Following the disaster that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was, there was one point of time where it was believed that Samsung might shut down the Note line of devices. However, over the months it became evident that Samsung is not going to give up and that they are going to indeed come out with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. This confidence paid off as Samsung broke all pre-order records in the US.
The company announced in a blog post today that more people in the US have pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 than any other Note device in the past. The phone was announced by the company on the 23rd of August and it goes on sale on the 15th of September. No numbers have been revealed so far.
“We’re thrilled to see the strong consumer response to the next level Note,” said Tim Baxter, president and chief executive officer, Samsung Electronics North America. “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.”
Samsung always had this notion in mind that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was indeed going to be a thundering success. However the market experts doubted this because of the massive price tag that the phone came with, as well as because of the Note 7 disaster. However, the markets have shown a lot of love for Samsung, as evident from the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 sales numbers.
Another motivation for the pre-orders were the pre-order gifts. Those who pre-order a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could select between either a free Samsung Gear 360 camera, or a “Galaxy Foundation Kit” which includes a Samsung 128GB EVO+ microSD card and Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible.
