The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are set to become Samsung’s most successful mobile devices ever with news pre-orders for the highly-anticipated smartphones have hit record levels.
Samsung today confirmed pre-sales to date have surpassed last year’s hits, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, by a “double digit” margin.
This is a heartening outcome for Samsung following a turbulent six months which saw the Galaxy Note7 recall and eventual cancellation of the product.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ recently in New York.
They boast Infinity Displays – screens that take up 83 per cent of the front of the device – along with intelligent user interface Bixby and an octa-core 64-nit 10 nanometer processor.
This processing power enables another feature – Samsung DeX which allows the Samsung S8 or S8+ to power a desktop system.
The S8 and S8+ will go on sale on April 28 but customers who pre-order the device will not only receive the free updated Gear VR headset and $50 worth of Oculus content, they will also have the device delivered a week early on April 21.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be priced at $1,199 and $1,349 respectively and will be available in three colours – black, grey and gold.
