Samsung Galaxy S8 in pre-order bottleneck

The S8's edge-to-edge OLED "infinity" screen has piqued the interest of many, and that includes Bob O'Donnell, founder and chief analyst at Technalysis research.

Furthermore, Galaxy S8 owners will get some exclusive benefits to using Google Play Music.

Matter of factly, however, yesterday's launch covers only four countries: the United States, Canada, South Korea and Puerto Rico, with the last one not on the original list.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 won't actually hit retailers' shelves until April 28, although those who pre-ordered the phone prior to April 19 are already receiving their next-gen handsets.

Samsung Electronics Co. started official sales of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones in South Korea, kicking off full-fledged efforts to strengthen its mobile business hurt by the discontinued Galaxy Note 7 phablets previous year. Through Monday, more than a million Korean consumers had placed preorders on the device.

Users can check for the over-the-air (OTA) update in Software Update tab of Settings menu of Galaxy S8+. "This is a tremendous innovation that makes GS8 an even more compelling choice for customers".

"It will have limited impact on the S8 sales", Kim said in a note to investors.

A number of early adopters have reported issues with the phone's screen suffering from a red-tinting problem.

The Note 7 recall debacle cost it billions of dollars in lost profit and hammered its global reputation and credibility, forcing it to apologise to customers and postpone the S8 launch. Such problems can occur if non-memory chips do not match.
