Preorder customers in Korea get first crack at Samsung Galaxy S8

One of the customers on the preorder list waited for his phone in front of a mobile outlet in central Seoul for five nights… setting a national record for waiting to use a smartphone. For his trouble, SK Telecom rewarded him with prizes worth nearly 5-thousand U.S. dollars The country’s other two mobile carriers KT and LG U-plus are also giving bonuses to the early birds on the preorder list.
