Due to increasing pressure from Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung had decided to launch the Galaxy Note 4 earlier than expected. The Galaxy Note 4 is supposed to be launched in South Korea on September 26 but prior to its official release, the country’s major telecom carriers, SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus had started the taking the pre-orders from September 18. Now, all three major carriers in South Korea have reported that they have sold out all their pre-order supplies for the Galaxy Note 4.
SK Telecom, which is the country’s largest carrier, managed to sell out all its Galaxy Note 4 pre-order allotments in just 9 hours. KT and LG Uplus also managed to sell out the pre-orders within three days. So there is no way for South Korean consumers to pre-order the device as they have to wait till Friday when the device is expected to be launched. The Galaxy Note 4 was unveiled earlier this month and will be sold for around $919 SIM-free in South Korea.
