The Galaxy S8 and S8+ held side-by-side in a person’s hands.

Samsung says it received a record-breaking number of pre-orders for the new Galaxy S8 and S8+, beating out the Galaxy S7’s performance last year. Samsung claimed it saw “more than 30 percent year-over-year growth in preorders” compared with the S7 launch.

This is another much-needed badge of approval for Samsung’s mobile business, as it continues to make up for the fiasco with its Note 7 device late last year. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ officially launched last Friday, 4/21, and have received great reviews from tech critics.
