The Galaxy Note 8 is setting new pre-order records for Samsung in the United States, according to The Korea Herald, which claims that the firm has named the handset the most-reserved smartphone in the Galaxy Note range; however, the exact amount of units it’s sold in the region remains unknown.
Last week, Samsung revealed that approximately 395,000 customers rushed to pre-order the Galaxy Note 8 when reservations opened in South Korea on Thursday, September 7, outpacing the 380,000 reservations its ill-fated predecessor—the Galaxy Note 7—received over a 13-day period.

The Galaxy Note 8 is already performing a lot better than we expected, though we aren’t sure whether anticipation for a new Galaxy Note smartphone or its complex dual-camera setup is driving the bulk of the sales. One thing’s for certain, though: it isn’t its measly 3,300mAh battery.
