The company today announced that more customers in the US have pre-ordered the Note 8 than any other Notes it has ever sold in previous years during the same time period.
Note 8 pre-orders went live on 24 August and the device is one of Samsung's most expensive smartphones to date, starting at $930. It's pricey but still cheaper than the price that Apple is planning for its new iPhone 8.
Samsung has attempted to offset that price tag with some pre-sale offers. Samsung did not specify exactly how many Note 8 pre-orders it has received so far, but judging by how popular Note 7s were last year before everything went down, it seems that little has deterred Note fans from upgrading - not even the price tag.
This could also mean that Apple's iPhone 8 might find the US heavy going.
