Although Samsung didn’t provide any official stats, it claims this year’s preorders managed to exceed the number of preorders for the Galaxy S22 series. The numbers also easily surpassed the Galaxy S21 series, apparently doubling the amount of preorders after one week.

Between the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra, it appears that the Ultra is the handset of choice among consumers. According to the company, the Galaxy S23 Ultra nabbed 60% of the total preorders. Samsung didn’t break down the percentages for the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus.

“The great momentum we’re witnessing speaks to customers’ excitement about products that push the envelope and give them the freedom to express themselves creatively,” said TM Roh, president and head of mobile experience business at Samsung Electronics. “This year’s preorder numbers echo our customers’ strong trust in our brand and demonstrate how our commitment to ground-breaking innovation and sustainability continues to resonate with consumers.”

In our review of Samsung’s most premium handset, we gave the Galaxy S23 Ultra 4.5 out of 5 stars. Only knocking it for its size, lack of base RAM for the price, and its cost.
