The UK’s biggest 4G mobile network operator, EE UK, has registered unprecedented pre-orders for Samsung’s flagship phones Galaxy S8 and S8+.
The S8 and S8+ pre-order on EE UK has surpassed last year’s flagship phones Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge breaking all past records, the mobile operator said in a press statement.
The EE UK has already started shipping both the devices to users. The British mobile operator said in the statement:
The larger format is again proving very popular, with 40% of customers opting for the 6.2-inch Infinity Display on the Galaxy S8+.
It is selling the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in two color options — midnight black and orchid grey. Out of these two colors, ‘the midnight black versions of the smartphones have received 63% of all Galaxy S8 and S8+ pre-orders.’

As well as record sales for EE’s range of Protection options – including Full Cover Insurance and official accessories designed specifically for the Galaxy S8 – have also seen strong demand.
