Samsung Galaxy S24 Series Smashes Presale Record with Over 1.2 Million Units Sold in Korea
Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S24 series, have taken the Korean market by storm, racking up a record-breaking 1.21 million pre-orders in just one week.
This surpasses not only the previous record held by the Galaxy S23 series (1.09 million units), but also the highest presale figures for any Galaxy smartphone in history.
The success of the presale campaign can be attributed to several factors, including:
- Excitement surrounding the new Galaxy AI features: Samsung has heavily promoted the Galaxy S24 series as its most intelligent smartphones yet, with features like improved camera performance and enhanced voice assistant capabilities.
- Attractive design and display: The S24 and S24+ boast new LTPO displays with a 1-120Hz variable refresh rate for smoother visuals and improved battery life. The S24+ also features a larger, upgraded QHD+ display.
- Powerful performance: Both models are powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 ‘for Galaxy’ chipsets or the new Exynos 2400, offering top-of-the-line performance.
- Long-term software support: Samsung is offering an impressive seven generations of Android OS updates and seven years of security patches for the S24 series, ensuring users have access to the latest features and security fixes for years to come.
The Galaxy S24 Ultra, the most feature-packed model in the series, was particularly popular, accounting for 60% of total presales. It boasts a powerful camera system with a 200MP main sensor, a long-lasting battery, and an S Pen stylus for enhanced productivity.
The global launch of the Galaxy S24 series is scheduled for January 31st. With such a strong start in Korea, it seems likely that the series will be a major success for Samsung in the global market as well.
