Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders to open at T-Mobile next week, already live in Dubai?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is one of those not so well-kept secrets that the marvelous universe of leaked devices has got us used to. We've seen the Note 7 in plenty of renders, we know what to expect from it in terms of features, and we also know when it will be announced: on August 2.

Not long ago, we heard that pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 7 would go live immediately after its announcement, on August 2. However, it looks like the new smartphone can already be pre-ordered in Dubai, one of the most important cities in the Middle East. SamMobile received a photo and additional details about this: reportedly, interested folks in Dubai can pre-book a Note 7 by making a deposit of around $140. They should receive the handset on (or about) August 2, alongside a free 128 GB microSD card as a gift.

What about the US? Well, according to SamMobile, T-Mobile should start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 7 sometime next week (thus before the end of July), planning to release it on August 2. If that happens, we assume that all other major carriers will being to accept pre-orders at about the same time.

At the moment, the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 isn't known, though it's probably safe to assume that the handset will be as expensive as the Note 5 - so we're expecting it to cost at least $700 unlocked. So, who's looking forward to getting a brand new, shiny Note 7?

So you pre order a device before you even know the specs? How does that even work, "well this version is £680 and this version is £720 but we can't tell you the difference between them"

You might want to wait for the UFS Memory cards Samsung just came out with, depending on if the Note 7 is compatible with it and if they're reasonably priced.

If the Note 7 is as good as it looks to be, I've got a 200gb SanDisk waiting for it, until the UFS cards arrive. Assuming, of course, the Note 7 is compatible.

That this just stupid! Pre-ordering a device without knowing the official specs and design? Are they that stupid or do they know that some stupid people will play along

90% of the specs have been confirmed. That's enough to pre-order it already.

I still don't know a SUPER important spec to me personally. That's battery capacity. I have a bad feeling there going for the smaller one

Yeah really, with 4gb Ram and 3600Mah. Epic fail. Look at the OP3 and Axon with 6gb Ram.

Apparently not a lot of people care about specs, they care about brand recognition, after market support (which Samsung has upped its game already) and its recognition among accessories market (cases and stuff) and repair shops. Good luck having to travel huge miles just to get your Axon or OP repaired let alone finding its parts or accessories. Only way for those 2 or any other brand to compete? Fight harder. And as for you? Troll harder

Whats the point of having so much ram? The system only uses so much and the rest is to keep apps in memory. Do you really need like 50apps running? lol
