Last month, Samsung unveiled its flagship Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices at an event in New York and found praise for the revamped bezel-less design of the smartphone which also features edge to edge display.

Last year’s Galaxy Note 7 exploding fiasco seems to not have harmed the reputation of the company as was being perceived by the media and masses alike as a whopping number of pre-orders have been witnessed in the company’s home country — South Korea.

According to a report in the Korea Herald, pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S8 8and Galaxy S8 Plus have reached 728,000 already and the company aims to sell north of a million devices on pre-order before the official sales begin.

This is the first time Samsung didn’t announce their flagship Galaxy devices at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but that doesn’t seem to have deterred their resolve to compete at the top levels.

Samsung has been trying hard to regain its reputation in China which was damaged even further following the mishap surrounding the Galaxy Note 7 devices and their recall.

“China is the market we can never give up. Although we have had a hard time over the past two years in the market, we believe Chinese consumers will react to and recognise good products. We will make more efforts to achieve the performance we had in 2013,” Koh Dong Jin, Samsung Mobile’s Chief told the Korea Herald.

Although its predecessor, the Galaxy S7 was an amazing device, the Galaxy S8 comes out on top when both of these are compared.

The company didn’t disclose any exact figures but confirmed that the ‘preorders of the Galaxy S8 are higher than those of its predecessor Galaxy S7’.

The new device packs a lot of software, hardware as well as design upgrades and is surely a step into the future of smartphones.

Reportedly, Samsung is witnessing a strong demand across the globe and the new devices are all set to be released by the end of April in different locations.
