When the word “Sheeple” was inducted into the dictionary, the iPhone fans were at the center of attention as the perfect example for explaining the meaning of the word. However, by contrasting the Galaxy Note 7 fire debacle and the latest declaration that the pre-order of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the highest ever in the Note series, we can say Samsung is breeding its own sheeple, too.
If you are following Samsung’s line of products release, you would be aware that the Galaxy Note 7, which was released last year, was involved in lots of explosion sagas. Samsung blamed the explosion on the Note 7’s battery, recalled back the phablet, refurbished it, and later reintroduced it as Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition.
After the Galaxy Note 7 issue, it was argued that the next series of the Note may not do well in the market. But since the announcement of the pre-order of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on August 24, a lot of people have pre-ordered the phablet, and now, Samsung is saying its latest flagship phablet is the most pre-ordered in the history of the Note series. The Korean OEM didn’t state the exact number of pre-orders, though.
The Note 8 costs $930, but there is sort of rebate for people that pre-ordered the phablet. Any pre-order made from August 24 to September 24 will get either a Gear 360 camera or a wireless charging bundle as a part of the package.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date in 2017 is September 15, according to speculations.
