Samsung Galaxy Note 8 sets new pre-order record
Customers in the US have pre-ordered Note 8 more than any of the previous Note versions in the same time period. However, Samsung didn’t give the number as to how much phones have been ordered till now. The reason behind this pre-order record could be that the company is giving free gifts to the ones who are pre-ordering the phone.

The gifts which the company is shipping includes a Gear 360, DeX dock, 128GB EVO+ microSD and Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible etc. The one who pre-orders Note 8 between the date of August 24 and September 24 will be treated with gifts.
“We’re thrilled to see the strong consumer response to the next level Note,” said Tim Baxter, president and chief executive officer of Samsung Electronics North America.
“Today’s consumers want to do bigger things in work and life, and Note helps make that possible. We built the Galaxy Note 8 for people who desire a device that lets them be productive and allows for self-expression.”
