Samsung targets 1 million pre-orders for Galaxy S8 in Korea

It will also be quite curious to see if Samsung releases the phone with an "Active" button, which has usually been a part of these devices for quite a while.

Samsung Electronics is now concentrating its marketing resources on overseas markets as well, Chinese in particular, for a long-term success of the phone. However, other features such as the deluxe notification screen Bixby Home and Vision will be included in the April 21 launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

It's important to point out that these prototypes are not being made for the consumer market as Samsung will test out the concept of foldable smartphones internally first.

Samsung is confident about safety this time, as it has worked to prevent the same safety problems it had for the Note 7 a year ago. Buyers can pre-order the Sprint Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus through the online store of Samsung, and besides the eCertificate, they will receive a free VR headset as well. Mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin said: "We're sincerely preparing for the Chinese market with Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus".

Preorders of Samsung Electronics' flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 have hit 700,000 units here since beginning last Friday, the company said Thursday.

With just a few more days for the launch of the Galaxy S8 duo in the country, here are some new and important features that we might experience in these smartphones.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are scheduled to hit shelves in the US and some other markets from April 21. "Until now, pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 reached 620,000 units, with the 128GB Galaxy S8 Plus accounting for 150,000 units", a Samsung official told the Korean Herald. The snaps of the upcoming flagship phablet seem to channel the Galaxy S8.

Samsung has been trying hard to regain its reputation in China which was damaged even further following the mishap surrounding the Galaxy Note 7 devices and their recall. Design documents for the iPhone 8 show a device with a curved-edge screen and narrow bezels at the top and bottom, similar to the "Infinity Display" being introduced with the S8.
