Galaxy Note 7 Pre-Orders are Apparently “Highest Ever” for a Galaxy Phone

galaxy note 7

According to reports out of Korea, pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 7 are crazy good. So good in fact, the Galaxy Note 7 pre-order numbers are the “highest ever” for a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

For a bit more detail, using industry data as of August 9, the device has been pre-ordered 200,000 times in two days alone. Keep in mind, that figure is reported to be South Korea only. Given this device is to launch¬†globally on August 19, it’s safe to assume that number spikes greatly when you add on pre-orders from Europe, US, and other parts of Asia.¬†

In total, Samsung is said to be producing 5 million units for its first batch of shipments that will go across the globe. That might seem like a high expectation, but given just how much Samsung is pushing the device via its marketing channels, it wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of people purchased this device.

Speaking of the marketing behind this phone, have you streamed any of the Olympics this year? If so, you’ve undoubtedly seen a commercial for this device at least 100x.

Were you one of customers who pre-ordered? Excited for your new device to ship?
