Samsung Galaxy S8, S8 Plus selling like hot cakes

Samsung has claimed that its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones are selling like hot cakes, suggesting that consumers have moved on from the taint related to the recall of its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets.

Samsung said that both of its new flagship phones have garnered a record number of pre-orders. As per the company’s claims, both handsets have already eclipsed the sales of their unfortunate predecessors.

Without revealing exact numbers, the South Korean manufacturer said that the early figures for preorders for the two devices showed a “double digit” growth.

Local media reports claim that pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones hit 550,000 units within a couple of days after the company started accepting pre-orders.

Analysts say the early success for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones can be attributed to the company’s decision to take time to release the new models as well as to changes in its strategies.

In addition, Samsung enhanced its marketing tactics and offered several incentives, including 2017 Gear VR, an Oculus game pack and a controller, to promote for the new flagship smartphones.
