Data out of Korea shows that the Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders are almost double that of the Galaxy S7. Pre-orders have only been open for a couple of days now and already over 200,000 units have been ordered by customers, making this the highest pre-order figure for a Galaxy smartphone ever in Korea. The Galaxy Note 7’s attractive features coupled with Samsung’s aggressive marketing push is reportedly bringing in more customers.
As is the case in other markets, Samsung is also offering customers in Korea a Gear Fit 2 activity tracker for free. It is even promising 50 percent off the repair cost if the screen of the handset ever breaks. Customers will also receive a 100,000 won gift card that can be used on the Samsung Pay Mall. Samsung is operating nearly 2,800 experience zones for the Galaxy Note 7 across the country whereas it had some 2,000 experience zones for the Galaxy S7. The Galaxy Note 7 will be released globally on August 19.
