Galaxy Note8 pre-orders top all of its predecessors’ in the US, 400,000 logged in one day in Korea

Today Samsung has proudly announced that it’s received more pre-orders for the Galaxy Note8 in the US than for any of its six predecessors. This means it’s already shaping up to be the best selling Note ever, and it’s not even in stores yet – it will make its debut on physical retail shelves on September 15.

The company is obviously pretty happy with this accomplishment, as you’d imagine. Over in its home country of South Korea, 395,000 pre-orders for the phone have been logged after just one day.

The ill-fated Note7 managed to net 380,000 pre-orders over the entire 13-day pre-sale period, so the new Note is clearly a raging success over there as well. The Note8 will be released in Korea on September 21, though shipments of pre-orders start on September 15.
