Apple released its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for preorders on Oct. 24 in South Korea. Apple’s figures have already exceeded 100,000 units, heavily outpacing Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 presale figures of 30,000 according to The Wall Street Journal.

It is important to note that the numbers alone are slightly misleading, because Samsung only limited its presale stock to 30,000, but analysts and the mobile carriers who are hosting the preorder insist that the iPhone sold at a faster rate than the Note 4.

South Korea’s largest carriers such as KT Corp. stated that it received 10,000 orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in approximately one minute and eventually 50,000 within a half hour.

The presale trends alone echo a sentiment that Samsung will likely lose some ground in the smartphone market due to Apple’s entrance into its long dominated territory.

In anticipation of a shift in handset market shares that Samsung has controlled for the past few years, the company recently announced its plans to spend close to $15 billion on a memory chip factory — a sign that the company is looking to diversify its strengths.
