Deal: Unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (international model) now costs just $730

Buying an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the US (or anywhere else) is a costly affair, as the handset is normally sold for at least $900. But what would you say about an unlocked Galaxy Note 8 that's offered for only $729.99? This is exactly the price that a top-rated eBay seller is currently asking for the international, dual SIM variant of the smartphone, and we don't remember seeing such a low Note 8 price ever (though this certain deal was pretty close).


The $729.99 Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that's available on eBay is "brand new in sealed box," and is compatible with GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. There are some downsides to it, as the phone doesn't come with US warranty, and does not work on CDMA/LTE carriers like Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular.


It's likely that this Galaxy Note 8 won't be sold for just $729.99 for too long, especially if customers are rushing to buy the handset as a holiday gift. Thus, if you're OK with the device not having US warranty, and you won't need it to work on a CDMA carrier, go ahead and check out the eBay offer at the source link below. There's even free shipping available within the US.

Doesn't work in many locations with AT&T LTE. Pretty much a 3G phone only in a majority of places.

That pretty much makes it a waste of money

I believe the unlocked is missing band 31? which ATT uses for overflow traffic. I have not noticed any difference between my Att Note 5 and my Dual Sim Note 8 on GoPhone in my travels.

"we don't remember seeing such a low Note 8 price ever" me neither.... Samsung phones must be stacked in shelves covered in dust for weeks and weeks that's why sellers trying to get rid of them before 2018.

it's ok. In 6 months it will only cost 500 and when note 9 comes out 400 or so whcih it would make it affordable. Patience is key. and only buy the one you need not unlocked. ATT, Sprint, tmobile, etc. I have cricket and i have to buy the one on ATT, but no problem, it will work fully as opposed to this unlocked one.
