It’s been just over a week now since Samsung launched the Galaxy S7 at its MWC Unpacked event, with pre-orders following just days later. Some lucky shoppers have already received their shipments, with the rest in line to get their hands on the GS7 shortly. With a flagship launch from a major smartphone company like Samsung, we’re obviously going to expect a pretty high level of consumer interest, but just how many people are actually pre-ordering the GS7? Early reports suggested that record numbers could be possible, and while we still don’t have many hard figures, a new report echoes that record-setting sentiment while cluing us in to which GS7 model is attracting the most interest – flat or edge.
Tipster Eldar Murtazin reports that GS7 pre-order have hit record levels in multiple nations, including Russia. And as for the popularity of the Galaxy S7 vs. that of the Galaxy S7 edge, he claims that the curved-screen phone is beating out its flat brother by a ratio of nearly 2:1.
Supposedly, pre-order shoppers are showing a preference for the GS7 in its black onyx color option.
Does all of this feel like a cruel tease, as you patiently (or maybe not so much) wait for your own Galaxy S7 to arrive? Sorry, but you should take heart knowing that it will be on its way soon. In the meantime, we’ll keep looking for better figures to shine a light on just how successful GS7 pre-orders have really been.
