Deal: Save $160 on the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (128 GB, Exynos variant)
If you’re in need of an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you’d normally have to pay about $950 for it - that’s its official US price. Of course, various unlocked Note 8 deals have been around for months, but many of them don’t include US warranty, and all involve the 64 GB version of the handset. 

A brand new deal now lets you get an unlocked Galaxy Note 8 with 128 GB of storage space for $819.99, thus saving $160. This is a dual SIM international variant of the phone (model number SM-N950F) that’s powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 processor - unlike the official US version, which uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset. The deal is available via US-based retailer B&H, which offers 1-year warranty with the phone, alongside earphones, a USB power adapter, and microUSB & USB Type-C connectors.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 128 GB is compatible with GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, but you won’t be able to use it on CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint. Moreover, you may encounter issues with Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE  (see the second source link below for details). If you're not bothered by these downsides, you can order the smartphone from B&H via the first source link below.

This will also not have full Samsung Pay support. You can use it if you switch the ROM to one of the regions that has access (which does not require root, just a tool that Samsung provides themselves), but you won't have full access like the rewards system and most discount programs.

That is the only downfall of the Exynos version. I am running XSA so Samsung Pay works and I have the built in White Pages. Which is great because the telemarketers are running out of control.

For that price I can get S9 plus 64GB, S9 128GB even cheaper or iPhone 8 Plus 64GB.
