Samsung Galaxy S22 series surpasses 1 million pre-orders in South Korea
South Korean outlet ZDnet is now reporting that a whopping 1.02 million Samsung Galaxy S22 series units have been pre-ordered locally. That number is on pace for a new record with 300,000 units being booked on the first day of the campaign.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 series launched back in 2017 actually managed 1.4 million pre-orders but accomplished so in an eleven-day pre-order period while the S22 series did so in just seven. The Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 were also close to the 1 million pre-orders mark but failed to reach that record setting number last year.
Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 Ultra accounted for 60% of total pre-orders. The Korean news outlet suggest many long-time Galaxy Note users upgraded to the S22 Ultra. Open sales of the Galaxy S22 series in South Korea start tomorrow, February 25. It will be interesting to see how Samsung handles logistics and how that will affect shipping times.
