Galaxy S9 Initial Pre-Orders Is Lower Than Expected

South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung, introduced the dual-flagged Galaxy S9 and S9+ at MWC2018 a few days ago and booking for both flagship smartphones have already commenced in Korea. Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy S9 does not seem to be as popular as expected.

Information out of South Korea has it that pre-orders for Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in Korea started on February 28 but the turnout lower than expected and it is not up to what the S8 series achieved within a similar time frame. However, let’s not mistake the “lower than expected” phrase for poor turnout because local operators confirmed that though there are numerous requests, it is still not as high as expected. Samsung has released any figure thus we cannot verify if this information is true.

These smartphones were released just a few days ago and it has not been fully rolled out yet so there is a possibility of a substantial increase in the follow-up to Galaxy S9. Samsung expects Galaxy S9 series to surpass Samsung Galaxy S8 in sales, but analysts are not optimistic about sales of Galaxy S9 series due to the fact that the smartphone does not really bring any new innovation or design, it only packs better hardware. The Galaxy S9 series is expected to sell about 40 million units this year, its yet to be seen if Samsung will hit or surpass this value.

Presently, the Galaxy S9 can be booked for 6,100 Yuan while the Galaxy S9 + goes for 7,000 Yuan. However, the final prices of these smartphones will be announced on March 6.
