Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Clocks Record Numbers

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced that more people in the U.S. have purchased the Galaxy Note8 than previous Samsung Note phones during the same time period.

Introduced on August 23, the Galaxy Note8 — featuring the largest ever screen in a Note device, an enhanced S Pen, and the world’s first smartphone with two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses — will be available in stores on September 15.

“We’re thrilled to see the strong consumer response to the next level Note,” said Tim Baxter, president and chief executive officer, Samsung Electronics North America. “Today’s consumers want to do bigger things in work and life, and Note helps make that possible. We built the Galaxy Note8 for people who desire a device that lets them be productive and allows for self-expression.”

In 2011, Samsung pioneered the big-screen smartphone category with the original Galaxy Note. Since then, the Note series has continued to define and redefine this space by introducing cutting-edge features like the iconic S Pen, fast wireless charging, as well as water and dust resistance.
