Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy S22, which will be officially released on the 25th, recorded the highest pre-sales of any S series ever.
According to Samsung Electronics on the 23rd, while the company made advance reservations for the Galaxy S22 from the 14th to the 21st, a total of 1.02 million units were sold in 8 days.
This is more than the previous record high of 1004,000 units of the Galaxy S8 series. Considering that the pre-sale period of the Galaxy S8 was 11 days, the Galaxy S22 recorded better results in a short period of time.
In addition, the pre-sales of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3, which led the foldable smartphone boom last year, surpassed 920,000 units.
The pre-launch of the Galaxy S22 on the 22nd also broke 300,000 units, breaking the record for the first day of opening. The previous record highs were the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3, with 270,000 units opened on the first day. It is analyzed that this is because the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which supports the S Pen, is a successor model to the previous Galaxy Note that was last released in 2020 and has absorbed the standby demand. In addition to the built-in S Pen, Ultra adopted the same angled appearance as the existing Note series. In fact, it was found that a large proportion of users of the existing Galaxy Note series purchased the Galaxy S22 Ultra. According to Samsung Electronics, the most popular model among the three Galaxy S22 series models is the Galaxy S22 Ultra, accounting for about 60% of the total.
