The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has defied common sense to break pre-order records despite the battery fires and global recall fiasco of last year’s Galaxy Note 7. Samsung has now released figures on how well the device is really doing.

In five days, the Note 8 got 650,000 pre-orders across 40 countries, beating the Note 7 by two and a half times in the same time period. This is a very impressive number even for Samsung, meaning that the previous recall didn’t seem to damage the companies reputation in any significant way.

With the new series of iPhones announced today, it’s a good sign for Samsung to be pushing such numbers.
