Samsung Galaxy Note 8: price and release date on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price and release date are now officially confirmed.

The official release date for the Galaxy Note 8 is set for September 15th, 2017. However, pre-orders open earlier, on Thursday, August 24th.

The full retail price is set at the quite steep $930 for the unlocked version of the phone on T-Mobile. It's $950 on AT&T and $960 on Verizon Wireless, all of which are higher than the nearly $850 price of last year's Galaxy Note 7. If you buy the new Note 8 between August 24th and September 24th, you get a chance to grab one of two freebie offers.


  • free Samsung Gear 360 camera ($230 retail value) OR
  • free Galaxy Foundation kit with Samsung 128GB EVO+ memory card and Fast Wireless Charging Convertible ($190 retail value)

Keep in mind that this offer is valid until supplies last and for a limited time.

Carrier Availability

The Note 8 will be available on most U.S. wireless carriers: the big four - Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint - but also on regional carriers like C Spire, Cricket Wireless, Straight Talk Wireless, U.S. Cellular, and Xfinity Mobile.

The Galaxy Note 8 will be available in the United States in Midnight Black and Orchid Gray. The other two colors - the blue and gold one - will be available in other markets across the globe.

AT&T opens pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 8 on August 24th, and has the phone listed at a full retail price of $950. If you buy it on AT&T's Next plan, the price works out to be a $31.67 monthly payment over 30 months.

Verizon Wireless is the most expensive U.S. carrier in terms of Note 8 pricing. The full retail price for the Galaxy Note 8 on Verizon is $960, and you would be able to also lease it for $40 a month over 24 months.

In addition to that, with a two-year activation, Galaxy Note 8 buyers can take $100 off the Samsung Gear S3 or the Samsung Galaxy S8/8+. You can also take advantage of a $50 discount to $99.99 for the car charger.

T-Mobile has the best offers for the Galaxy Note 8, but we still would not call any of them "cheap" per se. The full retail price for the Note 8 on T-Mobile is listed at $930, but most of you will probably pick it up with a plan. If you choose T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan, the Note 8 will cost you a $210 down payment and then $30 monthly installments over 24 months (for a total of $930). If you opt for the Jump on Demand plan, the Note 8 price will be $0 down and $39 a month over 24 months (a total of $936).

Sprint sets the full retail price for the Note 8 at $960, but if you are switching to the carrier, the price will be much lower: you get 50% off the lease price and pay just $20.00 per month with $0 down with 18 Sprint Flex payments. Sprint also notes that the Note 8 is a HPUE-enabled (High Performance User Equipment) phone, which means that it is able to make the most of Sprint's network in terms of coverage and speed.

Europe and the United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, the Galaxy Note 8 full retail price stands at £870.

In Europe, the Note 8 price is "conveniently" rounded to €1,000.

Well i kinda like it, but that price will pass the $1000 mark with taxes. I think i gotta buy 2 oneplus 5s with that money.

The T-Mobile numbers don't sound right. $210 down payment sounds like too much for a base model, and Jump OnDemand leases are only for 18 months, not 24, with a purchase option at the end of the 18 months for a bit less than a quarter of the price (the remaining value of the phone).

24 month contract with 5Gb of data is working out at £1191 in the uk with a upfront cost, or £60 extra for a 15Gb plan. About £150 more than i payed for my S6 Edge + 2 years ago! It's mine

So I read on The verge that you can get $425 off if you owned the Note 7 and trade in your current phone to Samsung. But if you are on a lease plan you can't trade in your current phone to Samsung without having to pay your carrier the remainder of payments. I think verizon has their own version of a discount too but it still seems a bit confusing how they will pull this off.

They should give discount to the previous owner of note 7.

14. g2a5b0e unregistered

They already gave everyone who returned their Note 7 a full refund & a $75 credit. What you're suggesting makes no sense.

25. g2a5b0e unregistered

I guess it made sense to Samsung after all. I'm cool with it.

When you're grown and work everyday, you don't worry about a 100$ price jump. I'm buying mine tomorrow. I can't wait to get home, and actually watch it work. To everybody bitching about the price, just don't buy it.

I'm grown, I work everyday, and I most certainly do worry about a $100 price jump. With bills to pay and a family to support, paying over $900 for a phone is simply out of reach. I know everyone's situation is different but in mine the cost is unjustifiable.

Ok, don't buy it then.

IMO, they would sell more phones if the made an introductory offer of $699.00 or $649.00, rather than the freebies.

However they need to get rid of their junk somehow...

They should let you take a discount for not taking the freebies. That would be cool.

9. g2a5b0e unregistered

That's not how it works. It not like the freebies are built into the price of the phone or anything. The freebies will last for a few weeks & price of the phone will remain the same. You don't get a discount on your burger for not getting ketchup on it.

Or get the freebies and sell them to sooth the sting a bit.

12. g2a5b0e unregistered

There's an idea.

I Believe that's why he said "that would be cool"

Get the Galaxy Foundation kit, is much more practical. I have the Gear 360 2017 camera, and while it's a cool gadget, it spends most of the time in a drawer after the novelty wore off.

As much as you criticize Samsung products, you certainly don't own any of them.

Overpriced or not overpriced? Hmm At least overpriced for me 1650 dollar in Turkey

7. g2a5b0e unregistered

As someone who will buy it anyway, I can admit that it's overpriced. The fact is I need a new phone & there's nothing else I'm that interested in.
