Samsung expects to sell more than 11 million Galaxy Note 8 units

Samsung's most recent flagship, the Galaxy Note 8 is likely to hit the shelves on September 15, the South Korean company announced. However, pre-orders for the most important phablet of the year have already opened globally, so customers can purchase the Galaxy Note 8 and wait for it to arrive next month.

According to Samsung's mobile chief DJ Koh, his company expects to sell more Galaxy Note 8 units than the previous model, the Galaxy Note 5. He also confirmed that Samsung sold 11 million units, so the target would be to sell more than that number.

Still, the number of shipments could be adjusted along the way since Samsung wants to sell more Galaxy S8 phones. Apparently, the South Korean company aims for 48 million unit sales of the Galaxy S8, and so far the flagship sold around 15% more than the Galaxy S7.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 prices start at about $930 (and more than €1,000 in Europe), which makes it one of the most expensive flagships available on the market. However, Apple fans will probably have to spend the same amount for the iPhone 8 later this year.
