Samsung has managed to sell over 1.3 million units of its 2017 flagship duo on home ground. Media outlet The Investor reports that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have broken all sales records in South Korea.

It is estimated that between 11,000 to 12,000 units of the two models are sold on a daily basis - a feat that no other high-end handset has managed to achieve in the East Asian country. The strong results have also caused the share price of Samsung Electronics to hit an all-time high of $2,123 on Monday. 

While nobody can argue with the figures Samsung has achieved so far in Korea, things might be a bit different on an international scale. Last month, global sales estimates stood at about 5 million, which is less than the 7-9 million achieved by the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge for the same period during 2016. 

Still, there's a hefty amount of time left until the end of the year, and the Seoul-based tech giant isn't planning on resting on its laurels. In a bid to keep the sales momentum going, Samsung is said to release more color options for the latest Galaxy S duo. 

Furthermore, we are very likely to see the premieres of the refurbished Note 7 and new Note 8 in the next couple of months, which will surely put the company in a favorable financial position before the new iPhone models break cover in September
