Samsung Galaxy S10 is now available for pre-order for customers worldwide, and needless to say, the South Korean manufacturer expects this model to spearhead its smartphone sales for another year.
But as it turns out, early demand for the device isn’t as high as anticipated, with preliminary data showing that first-day registrations are below those of both the Galaxy S9 and the Note 9.
South Korean media reports that Samsung received only 140,000 pre-orders for the Galaxy S10 on the first day in its home market, well behind the 180,000 units pre-ordered when the company started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S9.
Furthermore, the Note 9 was even more successful at 200,000 units, according to the same source.
As for the reasons why the Galaxy S10 isn’t selling as good as anticipated, many believe the high prices are forcing customers to hold on to their purchases.
