Samsung sold over 5 million Galaxy S8 smartphones in under a month

Riding on the momentum of record high pre-orders in South Korea, Singapore and the U.S, Samsung confirmed that global sales of the Galaxy S8 models have exceeded 5 million units. 

The Investor - “Although we cannot provide detailed figures, the sales are going smoothly around the globe. The combined sales already are beyond 5 million units,” a Samsung official said. 

Considering that the Galaxy S8 is barely one month old, it's commendable that Samsung managed to sell so many units. With the Galaxy S8 hitting more than 120 countries by the end of May, one can expect the global sales to increase significantly in the next few months.

Well, it seems that the Note7 debacle last year has absolutely no negative impact on the demand of the Galaxy S8. Most consumers are still fairly confident in the Samsung brand.
