Samsung sees strong pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and S8

For sure, Samsung is now prepping for an impressive Note 8 that might surpass the recent Galaxy S8. There were consecutive releases in both the lines until Samsung Galaxy Note 7 failed the makers by exploding.

In South Korea, the special edition Galaxy S8+ featuring 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage is more popular than the Galaxy S8 model.

The Galaxy S8 Plus has emerged as the preferred mobile device in the US and South Korea. "In addition, the majority of consumers have been selecting the Galaxy S8+".

Credit and debit card customers with Westpac will now be able to use a number of compatible Samsung smartphones and smartwatches for tap-and-go transactions, including the soon to be released Galaxy S8.

Not just the United States, pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have hit past 550,000 in just two days, according to Korean publication Hankyung. The phone itself looks remarkably similar to the recently unveiled Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones, with a full-frontal screen and no physical home button.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are expected to hit the United Kingdom market on April 28.

Samsung and its display-making arm Samsung Display have been speeding up related research and development work to roll out a limited batch of Galaxy X in the latter half of this year.

If achieved, the latter figure would be Samsung's second highest, coming just behind the 10.16 trillion won in operating profit the company hit in the third quarter 2013. However, that wasn't the only surprise; it's clear that 2016's Note 7 battery problems have had an effect on the Korean manufacturer. Larger phones are definitely becoming more mainstream now in the market and this is one of the proofs which we have. Complicating matters more is the fact that this appears to be a retail-ready phone and not a prototype, when we're at least five months out from the launch of Galaxy Note 8. In this article we explore what could have been, had Samsung made a few different choices.
