Pre-orders for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launched on Friday in South Korea and early reports suggest the demand for the new devices was higher than demand for the Samsung's recently launched Galaxy Note 4, according to the WSJ.

On Friday, the country’s three mobile carriers began taking orders for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In less than an hour, the carriers reported that orders had reached tens of thousands, outpacing the rate reported for Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy Note 4 model at its launch here in September.

KT Corp reported 10,000 pre-orders in one minute and 50,000 pre-orders in 30 minutes. LG Uplus said it received 20,000 pre-orders for the new iPhones within 20 minutes. SK Telecom declined to provide specific numbers but said both its first and second batch of presale orders have been booked.

Analysts estimate presale orders at roughly 100,000 units. That tops the Galaxy Note 4 which reached 30,000 in the same time frame.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will launch in stores on October 31st.

Samsung is South Korean and even they don't like it as much.

So they attempted to ban iPhones because they're too jealous of the success they always get even if they have issues.
