Highlights
  • Over 2.5 lakh people in India have registered to buy the Galaxy Note 8

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 pre-bookings in India have reportedly crossed the 72,000-units mark on the first day itself, while registrations to purchase the handset have reached more than 1.5 lakh, IANS says citing sources. The overall registrations have touched 2.5 lakh units ahead of the Galaxy Note 8 India launch event on Tuesday, September 12. The launch clashes with Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone X unveiling in the US later the same day. Samsung was aware of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X launch but was confident enough to launch on the same day owing to its strong leadership position in India, according to the IANS sources.

Nearly 1.5 lakh people have registered on Amazon, with 72,000 pre-booking the flagship device on the very first day when the registrations were open last weekend. Approximately one lakh people have registered to buy Galaxy Note 8 on Samsung India website, industry sources told IANS.

According to the market research firm GFK, Samsung is the top brand in India with 43 percent market share in the smartphone segment.
