According to Samsung Electronics America, the Galaxy Note 8's presale performance is doing very well in the United States. In fact, the company announced today that the device is selling pre-orders faster than previous Samsung Note phones during the same time period. The response has also been overwhelming in Samsung's home country when pre-orders were made available on Thursday. According to The Korea Herald, more Note 8 units were sold on its first preorder day as opposed to note 7 sales for its entire pre-order period.

Remaining relevant

Despite the controversy surrounding the Note 7 last year, the latest addition to the Note series is looking at a very positive performance.

The recalling and discontinuing of Note 7 devices for battery explosions not only hurt the Note brand, but also the company as a whole. Apart from losing a margin of its profit and dealing with damage control, Samsung was faced with figuring out how to make a huge and successful comeback for the brand.

According to Tim Baxter, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America, the company is thrilled to see how the consumers received the Note 8. The company focused on addressing the needs of its users and followers by offering them a device that can maximize work and life productivity as well as self-expression.

Impressive features

The Note series was first introduced in 2011. Since then, it has gathered a community of followers who are fond of its features, especially the signature screen and S Pen.

When the Note 8 was introduced on August 23, it made a big impression, literally. The device offers a bigger Infinity Display, yet fits just right in one hand. The ever reliable S Pen is still present for a more personal communication. And of course, there is the Samsung smartphone camera that has been upgraded to an incredible extent.

In fact, the Note 8 has the largest screen ever seen on a Note device. The cameras that capture stunning photos took on the dual rear system. It has two 12MP cameras featuring Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) placed on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses. In addition, the fast wireless charging is also available through Adaptive Fast Charging (AFC) or Quick Charge 2.0-compatible charger.

Ongoing pre-orders

The pre-orders for the Note 8 commenced on August 24 with a tag price of $930. To offset the immense price, the company is offering presale offers until September 24. Purchases made between these dates are entitled to a free choice of either a Gear 360 camera or a wireless charging bundle. Also, Note 7 owners were given a discount upon trading their current device for the latest. Carriers like T-Mobile has also jumped in on the trend by offering their own deals where a plan subscription merits a full rebate on a second Note 8.
