Samsung Galaxy S8 U.S. pre-orders rise 30% over Galaxy S7 reservations and set new company record

Before the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S8 last month, Samsung executives no doubt were sitting on pins and needles. How would the public respond to the new flagship models just half a year after the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was pulled off shelves. The phablet turned out to be doomed by faulty batteries that made each unit a potential explosive, something that Samsung didn't want the public to associate with its brand...

Samsung is still on Deck with the Note Series. Apple is in the hole I'm a little disappointed they limited the US colors to Black, Grey, and Silver, hopefully the note comes with a more interesting color, and maybe a colored face plate rather then the same black bezels for all

I currently have the Blue Corral s7 Edge and my girl has the Pink Gold s7 Edge. Both look gorgeous, but I'm still hoping for an Emerald Green comeback or even a Burnt Orange would be nice

Emerald Green would so clutch!! Imagine a Emerald Green Note 8 with the reflection effects that the orchid gray have... BOSS!!

Wow! You didn't like the Orchid? I'm so jealous of the wife. She has the orchid and I like it. I wish I had it. I was tempted to exchange, but I like the silver too. I miss the Coral Blue. Samsung has to work on having all color options available for the USA at the same time. Assuming over 10M phones were pre-ordered, how hard is it to make 25% of them each color each month? Of just make a few million in another color for just in case. Samsung has a 2 run homer with the S8 at 1st based and thr S8+ comes up to bat and hits it out the park. So Samsung is up to one. Apple comes up to bat in Sept. The 7S' are both strikeout, if they even remotely look like the present 7's, which I am betting it will be. The Anniversary Edition, will likely be a home run, but one point is still less than 2. Even if Apple makes that so-called ugly leak we've seen, people will still buy it. But I can bet, 10M who are holding out right now for the iPhone 8, will just end up getting the S8 or the Note 8, or the S9. I just curious as to what Samsung will do to the S9 that will be groundbreaking? The Note 8 us rumored to go 4K. SO that means the S9 will follow and go 4K. If Smasung manages to get the FPS under the display on the Note 8, then the S9 will get it too. But I mean, other than that, what can we expect? Then you have to consider the S10 or SX. Not sure if Samsung can use the S-10 name because it's trademarked by GM/Chervolet. The Chevy S10 was a ugly pickup back in the late 80's and early 90's.
