Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Surpasses Million Sales In South Korea

The Galaxy Note 8 surpassed one million sales in South Korea after 40 days on the market, Yonhap News reported on Thursday, citing unspecified industry data. Samsung's latest phablet was said to be performing extremely well in its home country even before it reached the market, having amassed a record-breaking number of pre-orders, with the latest development suggesting that the premium smartphone managed to maintain its strong momentum going into fall. The Seoul-based original equipment manufacturer is now seeking for ways to keep consumers interested in its offerings and is planning on launching a new revision of the Galaxy Note 8 in gold, with this particular model being set to go on sale in its home country tomorrow.

Samsung's most powerful handset to date is now set to take on the iPhone lineup this holiday season, in addition to competing with smaller manufacturers like Huawei, LG, and HTC. Despite its premium price tag which sits at approximately $900, depending on the market, the device is widely expected to be one of the most commercially successful mobile offerings of the year. In the context of the Android ecosystem, the Galaxy Note 8 is only unlikely to outperform the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus which are more affordable while still offering a similar premium experience, in addition to having the advantage of being on the market five months longer. The Galaxy Note 8 also marks the ultimate closure of the Galaxy Note 7 episode which Samsung once again recalled while launching the follow-up to its ill-fated 2016 phablet this summer, vowing to do everything it can to make sure such a scenario never happens again.

Consumers were seemingly able to forgive the Galaxy Note 7 debacle considering that the Galaxy Note 8 seems to be performing well all over the world, with China being the only major market it wasn't able to penetrate in a significant manner. The device itself is Samsung's most capable Android offering ever, being powered by the Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895, depending on the region, in addition to shipping with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space at a minimum, as well as featuring what's regarded as one of the best mobile camera setups to date.
