Preorders for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 sold out in South Korea
Samsung is struggling to meet the high demand for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in its home country of South Korea. The demand for the device is so high that there are no more preorder supplies available for the Galaxy Note 4 from any major carrier in its home country. This rise in demand for the device has in turn reinvigorated a smartphone distribution system which has been rather latent recently.
South Korea’s leading network carrier, SK Telecom, which has a 50.3 percent market share in the country, had sold its preorder units within an astonishing nine hours. Other major carriers which include KT and LG Uplus sold out their preorder units within three days. The limited time period set by these companies for the sale of the preorder units was from the 18th to the 25th of September.
The Galaxy Note 4 is the latest phablet from the Korean electronics giant and sports a beautiful 5.7 inch quad HD display with a mesmerizing resolution of 2,560×1,440-pixels and runs on an Exynos 5433 processor with eight cores, instead of the Snapdragon 805 quad core processor that is present in the international variant of the device. It also has an all new metal body and a 16-megapixel primary shooter while also retaining the stylus from its predecessor.
The Note 4 has been priced at $920 which roughly translated to around 957,000 Korean Won. This is the lowest cost price for any Note device and as a result of this many industry analysts have predicted a healthy increase in the sales of the Galaxy Note 4.
