It’s all about the pre-orders for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7. Andy Boxall:
The Galaxy Note 7, Samsung’s latest smartphone, is apparently well on its way towards success. Pre-orders in South Korea began on August 6 through the three major networks — SK Telecom, LG Uplus, and KT Telecom — and according to a local report, 200,000 people rushed out to secure one for themselves in just two days.
Compare that to the few million iPhones Apple sold in recent launches.
