Samsung Elec says Galaxy S8 preorders better than expected so far

SEOUL, April 13 (Reuters) - Pre-orders for tech giant Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s flagship Galaxy S8 smartphones have been better than expected so far, the South Korean firm’s mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin said on Thursday.

Koh also told reporters during a media event in Seoul the S8, which some analysts believe will set a new first-year sales record for Samsung and help the firm recover from the costly collapse of the fire-prone Galaxy Note 7, will be the safest smartphone to date for Samsung.
