Samsung president DJ Koh confident of Galaxy Note 8’s success

Pre-order sales of Samsung’s latest Note series smartphone have reached a record high in the US as well as in its home market Korea. The phablet, which goes on sale later this week in Korea, has already managed to gather over 650,000 pre-orders, far exceeding the Galaxy Note 7’s 380,000 pre-orders in 13 days since its launch. The company also launched the phone in India earlier today.

Since the unpack event last month, many business partners and our buyers have told us that the initial response (for the Galaxy Note 8) is good,” Koh told reporters at a press conference in Seoul. He also said that Samsung has been receiving pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 8 in 40 countries since its official unveiling.

The 64GB variant of the Galaxy Note 8 is priced at KRW 1.09 million (about $965), while the 256GB variant costs KRW 1.25 million (about $1,107). Those who pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 8 in Korea will receive the device on September 15.

The South Korean smartphone giant will launch the Galaxy Note 8 in China tomorrow. The company holds a measly 3 percent market share in China, far below the market share of the top four players in the country: Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi, which have a combined market share of a whopping 69 percent.

The Galaxy Note 8 brings a dual-12MP camera setup at the rear, which can capture images with background blur. Other than that, it also comes with an improved S Pen and a faster processor compared to its predecessor.

Ye I hate that too, sd card speed is just a joke, download speed is max at 4-5 MB/s if you get the 99/99 sd card. With internal storage I always get 11 MB/s and that is max with my internet provider….

Samsung should really stop using this guy in presentations. He can’t speak English. The Note 8 presentation was such a pain to watch I almost switched off

Samsung is South Korean company, his first language is Korean, at least he tried! I know English speakers who speak worse English than him. Example: “Cash me ouside, how bow dah”

Samsung gave its rivals a chance last year(Note 7), but they didn’t grasp it. Things won’t go luckly for them this time.
