Launched earlier than the model last year and presented with great enthusiasm by Samsung Galaxy S9's officials, it might not be up to expectations if we take on the number of pre-orders we have achieved so far
Despite Samsung's optimism, the Galaxy S9 and the S9 Plus do not seem to be overtaking the Galaxy S8 in terms of pre-orders, questioning the course of the new range. The time elapsed between the launch announcement and the start of the pre-order campaign is shorter than the S8 model, with potential buyers not having enough time to "digest" the information presented.
However, the possibility of a semi-failure is also supported by sources from mobile operators, who would have revealed that the buyer's interest in the Galaxy S9 is lower than previously seen
For comparison, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have crushed previous records with 550,000 pre-orders in the first two days of the official debut, more than double the Galaxy Note7 and more than 5 times more than the Galaxy S7 [10000,000 pre-orders]
The exact number of pre-orders made with the Galaxy S9 is not known, but a possible failure would question the ability of the new product to dominate the smartphone market in the near future. Fortunately for Samsung, Apple did not have too much blueprint for iPhone X, with the company having to cut half the production volume originally planned
