Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus set a new preorder record for Samsung.
Samsung has more preorders for its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones than for last year's Galaxy S7, the company says.
"The market has responded -- with a more than 30 percent year-over-year growth in preorders versus the record preorders we had with Galaxy S7, making it our best ever," Tim Baxter, Samsung Electronics America's chief operating officer, said Monday in a statement.
