The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been announced on August 2nd, and pre-orders have been opened for a couple of days now. This is the company’s latest and greatest smartphone, and it’s somewhat different than its predecessor. The Galaxy Note 7, unlike the Galaxy Note 5, comes with the Dual Edge display, which means its display resembles the one on the Galaxy S7 Edge, it’s curved on both its left and right side. The Galaxy Note 7 has plenty of tricks up its sleeve, as you probably already know.
Samsung Mobile’s chief, Koh Dong-jin, recently said that the company expects the Galaxy Note 7 to outsell the Galaxy Note 5, and that’s an expected reaction from the company’s head, and could easily become a reality. The Galaxy Note 7 looks like a cross between the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7 Edge, and is a somewhat fresh approach to design by the company, and the first Galaxy Note phablet which does not ship with a flat display. That being said, a new report surfaced in Korea, and it seems like the Galaxy Note 7 is in high demand in Korea. Info provided by the source claims that Samsung has received tons of pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 7, almost twice as much compared to the Galaxy S7. Korean consumers have been able to pre-order the Galaxy Note 7 for only a couple of days at this point, and the company has already received over 200,000 pre-orders it seems. Truth be told, Samsung is aggressively advertising their new phablet in Korea, but they did the same with the Galaxy S7, so the two devices are basically on even ground. Consumers who opt to pre-order the Galaxy Note 7 in Korea can get the company’s Gear Fit 2 activity tracker for free, and the company is also promising to give the consumers 50% off the repair cost if the device’s screen breaks, which is also a great incentive to purchase this smartphone. The phone is going on sale globally starting August 19th, in case you’re interested.
