The Galaxy S8 broke all pre-order records for Samsung. The company’s new flagship smartphone has been very well received even though it’s the first flagship that Samsung has released after the disaster that was the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ on March 29 and released both handsets in select markets on April 21. Since then, it has gradually been releasing it in more markets across the globe.

Less than a month after the release of its new flagship smartphone, Samsung has revealed that global Galaxy S8 sales have crossed 5 million units. “Although we cannot provide detailed figures, the sales are going smoothly around the globe.

The combined sales already are beyond 5 million units,” said a Samsung official. Samsung has also revealed that it will continue to release the Galaxy S8 in more markets across the globe in the coming weeks. It aims to bring it to 120 countries by the end of this month, including China.

Market analysts are of the view that Samsung is going to sell 20 million units of the Galaxy S8 by the end of the second quarter. The annual sales of its new flagship might be up to 60 million units which would be a new record for Samsung.
