Record Pre-orders For Galaxy Note8 In The US, India Sees 250,000 Registrations
Sep 12, 2017

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 reports great pre-order numbers on all fronts. Samsung says that the new flagship broke the previous pre-order record for a Galaxy Note in the US. Interest is strong in India as well.


The relatively high price did not deter fans of the S Pen – the new model costs $930 SIM-free while the Note7 was $850. Samsung is already shipping phones to some of those who pre-ordered while general sales will start on September 15.


We have more concrete numbers from India – 250,000 people registered interest. Of that, around 150,000 are on Amazon. The country will get the new flagship earlier than most – tomorrow.
