Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Sales Impress
Impressive pre-order sales figures for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ suggest that last year’s Note 7 crisis has had little to no negative impact on consumer’s confidence in Samsung.
Samsung have reported “strong double digit growth” for pre-orders of its new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices, outselling their predecessors even at the higher prices. Reports also show more pre-order customers users are choosing the larger (and more expensive) 6.2-inch S8+ over its 5.8-inch counterpart.
A spokesperson at Samsung continued to state that “the majority of consumers have been selecting the Galaxy S8+, with Midnight Black being the preferred color of choice.”
Samsung announced the devices in their self organised event in New York, snubbing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Whilst Samsung hasn’t published specific sales figures, the sales growth comes as a welcome relief for the South Korean company.
