The Galaxy S22 Ultra is proving to be more popular than its more affordable siblings.

What you need to know

  • Galaxy S22 series phones have broken preorder records in Samsung's home market.
  • Over 1 million units of Galaxy S22 series phones have been preordered in South Korea so far.
  • The Galaxy S22 series has also set a new flagship record for Samsung in India, with the company securing over 70,000 pre-bookings in just 12 hours.

Samsung's latest Galaxy S22 series phones could set a new sales record for the company if preorder figures from South Korea are any indication.

Preorders for the Galaxy S22 series went live in South Korea on Monday last week. Since then, Samsung and its major carrier partners have received around 1.02 million preorders, a new record for the Galaxy S series. The previous record of 1.004 million preorders was set by the Galaxy S8 series. More than 300,000 units of Galaxy S22 series phones were activated on their first day of sale in South Korea, which is also a new record for Samsung's Galaxy S line.

What's more impressive is that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is receiving more love from consumers than its siblings. As per South Korean media, the Ultra model accounted for around 60% of all preordered Galaxy S22 series phones activated on Wednesday.

It isn't just Samsung's home market where Samsung's best Android phones are generating a lot of interest. Samsung India has announced that it secured over 70,000 pre-bookings in less than 12 hours. Pre-bookings for the S22 series in the country started on February 23. Just like South Korea, the S22 pre-bookings have set a "flagship record" for Samsung in India.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.
