New Note 8 sets pre-order record

by on11 September 2017

Tame Apple Press rather upset

Despite its best efforts to remind users about the incredibly inflammable Note 7, the Tame Apple Press has been unable to stop Note 8 pre-orders from hitting record levels.

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.
