Samsung is happily reporting that U.S. pre-orders of the Galaxy Note8 are better than ever. The new Note has seen more pre-orders than any other previous Samsung Note phone during the same time period. The new Samsung Galaxy Note8 is packing in the largest screen ever in a Galaxy Note and features dual-cameras. Samsung has also improved the S-Pen design and software. We had some hands on time with the new Note8 for only a brief moment but it felt nice to hold and the UI felt fluid.
“We’re thrilled to see the strong consumer response to the next level Note,” said Tim Baxter, president and chief executive officer, Samsung Electronics North America. “Today’s consumers want to do bigger things in work and life, and Note helps make that possible. We built the Galaxy Note8 for people who desire a device that lets them be productive and allows for self-expression.”
Samsung was the first to introduce the “phablet” into the market and has had much success with the Note series. The one bump in the road was last years Galaxy Note7, which had many combustion issues and was eventually recalled. Even with that big of an issue, Samsung has recovered nicely. Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have done well and now the Note.
The Galaxy Note8 builds upon Samsung’s legacy of innovation. In 2011, Samsung pioneered the big-screen smartphone category with the original Galaxy Note. Since then, the Note series has continued to define and redefine this space by introducing cutting-edge features like the iconic S Pen, fast wireless charging2, as well as water and dust resistance3. The Galaxy Note8 reimagines the big-screen smartphone all over again, with an immersive 6.3 inch Infinity Display in a narrower form factor that makes it easy to hold in one hand or slip in a pocket.
