To participate in today’s sale, it’s mandatory to have registered in pre-bookings. Fortunately, pre-bookings are still open and if you missed out on it earlier you can still book a unit for yourself. Considering widespread interest, Samsung is believed to have already received a huge amount of pre-order requests. Effectively, the smartphone could quickly go out-of-stock in India. According to a report by SlashGear, the premium smartphone has already broken sales records in the UK and Ireland last week. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review
