Earlier this month Samsung finally unveiled its two new flagship devices, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. It has now started releasing both handsets gradually in supported markets across the globe, the latest word from Korea is that the two handsets are performing much better in the first week of launch than the Galaxy Note 4 did when it was released in September last year.
According to a report published in The Korea Times today Samsung’s new handsets are selling much better in their launch week as opposed to the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge which were released in September 2014.
It’s claimed that the company has been able to sell more than 100,000 units of both handsets combined during the first three days following launch and that’s higher than the initial sales that Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge brought in following their launch.
Samsung Pay is said to be one major reason why both devices are off to a good start in South Korea, the company’s new payments service goes live in South Korea this month while it will be available in the United States next month, both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ support Samsung Pay straight out of the box.
