Galaxy Note 7 price tipped to start at €849 ($938) in Europe


Given the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge rampant sales success, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated handsets for the second half of the year. Samsung is reportedly planning to go the S7 edge route, and release the Note 7 with a display that is slightly curved to the sides only, nothing with a flat screen, which will make the Note 7 narrower and thus eventually more comfortable to hold.

As for the under-the-hood improvements, we don't expect much change from the S7/edge duo, except maybe 6 GB of RAM, or a slightly overclocked chipset in the purported Snapdragon 821 version, as well as a larger battery to back them all up. The venerable S Pen should also be taught some new tricks, but how much would all these niceties of the Note 7 eventually cost in the end? 

Well, rumor has it that it will start from EUR 849 ($938) over on the Old Continent, which is EUR 50 more than the S7 edge commanded there at launch, and will probably translate to a tag that is north of $800 in the US as well. Not that we expected the Note 7 to be anything less than that, curved screen and all, but still, the retail pricing won't be for the faint of heart, it seems, at least for the early adopters.

With phone payment plans, that price is nothing. Just can't wait to see if they will.make a Note and Note Edge. If they only make an edge model, the sales may not be as good as the S is doing. But we shall see. I probably will just skip this one and wait. Maybe I will just pull my S6 edge+ out the box and use it.

It really depends, region to region. In Canada, I imagine that this will be about $450 on a two year contract, which is what the S7 edge was at launch. That's a lot of money for something that holds you to a 2 year commitment.

Wonder why you never say this for any other brand, hmmmm. BTW, it's just a glorified s7 edge, just as 6s plus is just a glorified 6

"BTW, it's just a glorified s7 edge, just as 6s plus is just a glorified 6" Not even close: S7 Edge + Bigger screen + Faster processor + Active digitizer pen to make productive use of big screen + Potentially more RAM + Potentially IRIS Scanner Equipped - Widely popular and most piratical port for Android devices (MicroUSB) + Mostly problematic new standard USB Type C port ( http://www.dereferer.org/?http%3A%2F%2Fbit%2Ely%2F1SNt8FV ) with potentially 0 benefits over MicroUsB (if it's merely USB 2.0 like every other Android Smartphone with USB Type C) = Note 7 6s + Bigger screen + 1080p screen + OIS = 6s+

I just received my two extra batteries for my note 4 , that gives me a total of four of them … Will keep the two new ones for future use , as of now the two I use still last up to 1 1/2 – 2 days on a full charge each of moderate use and one full day ( 10 hrs. ) of heavy use …. I’ve not rooted my phone but with marshmallow installed and using Greenify as well as Package disabler Pro ( witch gets rid of all bloat ware and battery sucking carrier apps without root.. ) only for Samsung devices , so I get amazing durability from my phone …. Screen is still beautiful not a scratch. Will wait and see how the note 8,9,10 look like then will see if I will purchase another Sammy or not…. This is a copy of my post from sammobile .... just lazy I guess lol

With my Samsung note 2, I am also waiting for Note 13 or if possibly Note 20. I've got it tweaked, plastered the back with solar panel... I don't worry about battery lol

So in the UK with VAT it's going to cost around £800 (maybe more depending on value of pound), wonderful. Samsung can go screw themselves.

Hey Phone Arena. Why do you guys always put the US dollars exchange rate next to what the price in euros will be? You guys always do that and it makes no sense at all. If Sammy prices a phone at €849....then it would be $849 in the US. Not what the exchange rate is. You'd think after several years, you guys would realize.... you should stop doing this.
