Surprise, surprise: A lot of people are interested in buying Samsung’s Galaxy S5. SamMobile notices that T-Mobile senior product manager Desmond Smith has tweeted out that his company has now received 300,000 pre-registrations for the Galaxy S5, which is particularly impressive since it was just over a week ago that T-Mobile announced it had already received 100,000 pre-registrations. Pre-registrations aren’t the same as pre-orders, of course, since they aren’t commitments to buy a device and are only sign ups to be alerted it when it becomes available.
The Galaxy S5 may not have a new design, metallic construction, or mighty specs like a 2k display, but if you thought those supposed negatives would do anything to stop Samsung’s latest flagship from breaking records, well, you might want to do some serious rethinking. U.S. carrier T-Mobile managed to grab 100,000 pre-registrations for the S5 in just two days, and now, less than a week later, the pre-registration figure has reached a whopping 300,000. Pre-registrations shouldn’t be confused with pre-orders, as this is just interested consumers signing up to receive information on pre-order and availability, but it’s still a decisive indication that interest in the Galaxy S line is higher than ever before, even though the 300,000 pre-registrations won’t exactly turn into the exact number of sales.
