Last year Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, which had to face a global recall because of its infamous exploding battery fiasco. And following that, the Galaxy Note 8 was naturally a very important step for Samsung to regain its trust in customers. Launched globally last month, the Galaxy Note 8 was up for pre-orders from the same day, that is August 24. Samsung has now announced that the Galaxy Note series is still going strong as more people have pre-ordered the phablet in the US than any previous Galaxy Note device within the same period of time.

For those who haven t yet pre-ordered, the last day to book the phablet is September 14, as the company guarantees availability of the device in stores starting September 15. You can also pre-order a Samsung Gear VR with Controller along with the phone as well.

Commenting on the pre-order numbers, Samsung’s president and chief executive officer, Samsung Electronics North America, Tim Baxter said, we re thrilled to see the strong consumer response to the next level Note . 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,” he further added.

As far as the Indian market is concerned, the company has sent out media invites for an India launch event on September 12, which is the same day when Apple is hosting its annual event to launch the new iPhones. Though nothing’s confirmed, but the Galaxy Note 8 has been speculated to be priced at either Rs 69,900 or Rs 74,900. During its first sale, the Galaxy Note 8 will be available in two colors of black and gold in India.

Talking about the hardware, the Galaxy Note 8 comes with improved features in terms of S Pen. The device comes with the Bixby intelligent assistant, is water and dust resistant, and houses an iris scanner. RELATED: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launched: Top 5 features

Under the hood, the phablet is powered by a 64-bit Exynos 8895 octa-core processor chipset. It comes with 6GB of RAM and three expandable storage variants of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
