The South Korean tech giant started official sales of the 6.3-inch phablet on 21 September, selling 850,000 units through preorders, which kicked off a week earlier, Yonhap news agency reported. The figure eclipsed numbers for the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, which managed to draw in 380,000 preorders.

Samsung said it also plans to add the gold-colour edition (in South Korea) to the Galaxy Note 8 products starting on 3 November, which is currently available in black, blue and grey in the country.

Galaxy Note 8 is priced at 1.09 million won ($979). The device costs nearly Rs 68,000 in India.
