Samsung Galaxy S8 sold out

Posted by Cristy on 2017/04/21 to Smartphones

Following the official announcement of the much awaited Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus variant, the tech company deemed it fit to release a more premium variant of the device, the Galaxy S8 Plus with 6GigaBytes of RAM and 128GigaBytes of onboard storage memory into the market.

The sad news, however, is that the limited edition smartphone variant which was released along with calls for pre-order for the usual variant was made available only to the Chinese and Korean market.

The tech company which will be dumping the 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage memory variant powered by the latest Qualcomm 835 Snapdragon processor, however, sold out on the pre-order for the device in just five days.

Samsung made only 150,000 units of the 6GB RAM, 128 GB memory variant of the device available and it went on sale completely in 5 days leaving many wanting to lay their hands on it.

However, those who were lucky to place their orders will be getting the device sometimes in May with the pointer showing the end of the month as the possible delivery date for the premium device.

The report which surfaced online further pointed that the tech company has sold a total of  620,000 units of the Galaxy S8 device and the S8 Plus variant so far in the country.

Reports from the US, however, indicate that the company has sold six times more Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus compared to the statistics issued regarding the Galaxy S7 device. According to ranking, the Galaxy S8 will most likely top the company’s earnings projections seeing as it has taken an early lead over its predecessor in the market.

The device is also said to be coming to users with a free Samsung DeX station accessory which sells for about $120 in the market.


The official shipment of the pre-orders will start on April 18 while it is expected that the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus variant will be made available on retail stores shelves starting from April 21.


The 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage memory variant, however, goes for as much as $1,020 although reports indicate that the South Korean tech company may be looking at bringing the device to other markets including the US soon.
