The 720,000 Galaxy S8 phones were ordered in the first 7 days, which is quite a large number considering that South Korea has just over 50 million people. Both the phones feature 64GB of internal storage with support for storage expansion via dedicated microSD card slot.

In previous years, however, Galaxy Active models have launched in June and Samsung could be looking at a similar time frame for this year as well.
