It’s been a few days since Samsung released the Galaxy Note 8 phablet in several markets across the globe, including the company’s home country South Korea.
According to a new report surfacing from Korean shores, Samsung has reportedly sold 270,000 units of the Galaxy Note 8 in the first weekend.
It appears the initial response for the handset is promising as we’ve seen that it received a decent number of pre-orders in the United States as well.
South Korea’s three major carriers, including SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus, received 200,000 new subscribers for the Galaxy Note 8 on September 15th, and an additional 70,000 the following day.
The sales figure should improve as soon as the handset makes an appearance in more markets across the globe. Samsung should try to launch it in as many countries as possible before the official availability of the iPhone X as it can affect the sales of the phablet in some regions.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features a 6.3-inch display sporting a resolution of 2960 by 1440 pixels, an Exynos 8995 processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device also comes with a dual 12MP camera for photos and videos, a 3,300 MAh battery, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat as its operating system.
