Pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 set a new record high in South Korea

As expected by Samsung's chief of mobile business, Dong-jin Koh, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are off to a roaring good start in South Korea.

Industry sources told Business Korea that pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 handsets recorded a total of 550,000 units. It easily broke the previous records set by the Galaxy Note7 (400,000 units) and the Galaxy S7 (at least 5.5x more).

Consumers in South Korea seem to have looked past the Galaxy Note7 saga and embraced the latest flagship phones of the brand. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be available globally from April 21.
