Preorders for Galaxy S8 top 600000 units in Korea

Preorders for Galaxy S8 top 600000 units in Korea

From April 7 to 8, around 550,000 units of the Galaxy S8 were pre-ordered beating the record that the Galaxy S7 set the previous year. According to a PhoneDog report, there would not be any problem if the company will combine the Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy Note phones soon. Priced starting at $720 for the 5.8-inch S8 and $840 for the 6.2-inch S8 Plus (pictured above), the new devices are being positioned as premium phones created to compete with Apple's iPhone 8, which is expected to come out this fall.

Samsung recently announced it will be selling refurbished Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in certain markets.

The Galaxy S8 smartphones feature high-resolution displays that bend on both ends, and come with various innovative technologies, such as iris and face recognition scanners, as well as a smart voice assistance program named Bixby. Several reports have suggested the company's iPhone 8 will also have a bezel-less design, featuring a front panel that's nearly all screen.

We'd like to see Samsung embrace a smaller display on the Galaxy S9, or offer up a third version that includes a smaller screen instead. Another change which has been made by Samsung is the hardware key yes this is actually happening folks, the hardware home button has been removed. Furthermore, the demand for larger screen variants seem to be on a rise.

However, Samsung is expected to meet fierce competition from other vendors, including Sony Mobile Communications, Huawei and Oppo, indicated the sources. Many of these companies are nearly unheard of by the general public and just starting to get noticed by Wall Street.
