It's been less than a month since the Galaxy S8 hit store shelves, but the curved flagship phone is apparently already a huge success. Samsung has already sold over 5 million units of the phones worldwide, according to the Korean site The Investor.
The Galaxy S8 went on sale in late April, but has yet to be released in countries like China and parts of Latin America.
If the sales numbers are true, Samsung is well on its way to erasing the embarrassment and lost profits it suffered by recalling the Galaxy Note 7, its last premium phone.
An unnamed Samsung official reportedly told The Investor that global S8 sales were beyond 5 million. Samsung did not respond to a request for comment.
