Samsung’s decision to remove expandability options from the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ has proven to be a polarizing topic. While some don’t care, the rest of us are truly disappointed by Samsung’s measures, even if both devices improved in overall appearance. If you’re wondering how this amounts to sales, the answer is rather shocking.

The Korea Times just published news claiming that Samsung has sold more of its new phablet units than it did last year. The report claims that Samsung has been able to sell 100,000 units of both devices in just three days, a number that’s far better than what its predecessors sold in the same period of time. The report also claims that one of the major selling points has been the early launch of Samsung Pay in Korea, though this is hard to confirm at the moment.

Samsung hasn’t really provided official figures, but IFA’s press event could be the show floor for this information.
