270,000 people rushed to activate the Galaxy Note 8 in South Korea during its first weekend of availability, with 200,000 activations taking place on September 15 and 70,000 on September 16, according to local digital news outlet The Investor.

The total figure accounts for a little more than 30 percent (32 percent, to be precise) of the eye-watering 800,000 pre-orders the firm received in the region over a seven-day period, which ran from September 7 through September 14.

We’re pleased Samsung has been able to rebound so quickly from the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 debacle, though it will be interesting to see how well sales hold up when the long-awaited iPhone X hits the—physical—shelves on November 3.
