Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders to go live immediately after August 2 announcement event


We're a little over a two weeks away from the biggest summer smartphone hit this year's release. As you may have heard a number of times already, Samsung is working hard to deliver the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2. We've already shown you the invitation for the official event, and even carried out a little investigation into it together with all of you.

With almost everything about the phablet known in advance, its exact release date, pre-order times, and retail price still elude us. But today, we gathered new intelligence on the matter, courtesy of Dutch website GalaxyClub. Having checked with a "reliable source", the page reports that pre-orders for the Note 7 in the Netherlands, as well as (plausibly) other European countries, South Korea and North America, will begin immediately after the announcement event ends. The ceremony will be held August 2, 2016 in New York (11a.m. EDT, Rio de Janeiro (at 12pm) and London (at 4 p.m). It's likely that the brand new Note 7 will be up for pre-order at Samsung's web store immediately after the event concludes.

It's currently unknown how long it will take before the units are shipped, and whether Samsung plans to throw in pre-order bonuses like a Gear VR headset or a Gear smartwatch for customers that jump the gun. The price is also speculative at this point, although we don't expect Samsung will deviate from the usual $700 and above for a base model.

The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to feature cream-of-the-crop hardware, such as the upgraded Snapdragon 821 processor by Qualcomm, up to 6GB of fast LPDDR4 RAM memory, and iris scanner security. You can read more about Samsung's upcoming smash hit in the articles listed below.

That's cause you haven't officially seen the Note7 or any of its features yet. Meanwhile all of us who know the quality of Samsungs recent flagships rest assured that the beast is definitely coming.

Everyone knows you're an Apple honk. Fine. This from the company that brought us the iPad, iPad 2, new iPad (no, not the iPad 3,new!) iPad 4, iPad Air (not the iPad 5). And we should be on the iPhone 10, not 7,if we're all about continuity. Really!? Let's start at 3,go 3g the, no not 4,3gs. Then 4. Then 4s etc, etc, etc.....

What exactly is beast about it? It's basically an S7 Edge with a pen. You might as well go buy that now!!

17. willard12 unregistered

Then, I guess you're saying the S7 Edge is also a beast. Aside from the fact that I thought you all took offense to people telling others what they should and shouldn't buy, it seems everyone is already well-aware they can go buy it right now. http://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/2016/07/15/galaxy-s7-outsells-iphone-6s/#3d031eb31e97

It's a phone, you don't need 6. 4 is plenty. Samsung just needs to optimize it's software.

It's not an iPhone, it has got a central file manager for managing and organizing many of the files I'd usually deal with on my Surface Pro, it can truly multitask (be it for background syncing/uploading/downloading tasks, split-screen tasks, Network media/file Server, etc.), it can be automated to do a wide variety of time-saving tasks, etc. All of these capabilities make use of RAM, the more it has and is properly programmed to make use of, the more future proof it will be. Smartphones are just another form-factor of a PC. There's no rule of thumb saying they have be incapable of doing what dumb phones were capable of, nor incapable of handling what a Laptop/Desktop can handle.

It already is optimized. Imagine a full fledged desktop grade software running smoothly on lower than iPhone specs (Galaxy A7). This one is a turbo version of that and still good battery life.

So, if Verizon doesn't carry the 256 Gig' model I might be able to pre-order it on Samsung's site; possibly a sweetener(?) thrown-in. I bought an S7 Edge four weeks ago when I happened upon a $300 off, online coupon. Samsung, very quickly and graciously I would add, sent a VR headset to thank me for my purchase. The transaction was handled via Verizon's website. I'm still counting on having a Note 7 to take on vacation in mid-August.

We will have to wait and see I suppose. In (urgently) waiting for the Note 7 I'm doing what I stated that I wouldn't do all the way back at the very start of June; I'm rushing the summer and looking past (in some cases) things that're going on between now and mid-August.

Gotta see it in action and read the reviews, but if it lives up to the hype, it's mine.

Of course hands on at the store but I'm very confident it's great just as the note 5 but better

August 2nd? The same date that the Windows Anniversary update is landing? That day just keeps getting more interesting.

Damn samsung those curved edges sucks. Good bye Note, not for me anymore (I have note 4 and s7 edge. I will never buy curved edge phone)

I really like the edge design, but they're shooting themselves in the foot if they make only an Edge version. Instead of limiting the flagship to just an edge version, they should instead cut back on the number of midrangers and low end devices.
