The new Galaxy S5 was just launched. It doesn’t have a 2k display, a metallic construction or a new innovative design, but if you thought that it won’t break records, you are so wrong. U.S. carrier T-Mobile launched a site were customers could sign in for a pre-registration for the new Samsung Galaxy S5. In two days, they reached 100.000 orders. Now, after a week there are 300.000 pre-registrations.

We must make a difference between a pre-order and pre-registration. A pre-order means that you are willing to pay for the product. A pre-registration means that you want to receive information about the pre-ordering and the availability for the device. Still 300.000 pre-registrations means a lot and even if there won’t be 300.000 sales, the number is pretty big. Many people from the tech domain said that Samsung should have done more to the new flagship, a new design, other features. But it seems that as if it is, with a 16 MP camera sensor, a fingerprint sensor, waterproof and dustproof features and so on it will still make a fortune for Samsung.

So if there a buzz just when pre-registration opened, what will happen when we would be able to pre-order it?
