We already know a lot about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8
- its announcement date
, alleged specs
, and even how it will probably look
. However, the release date for the high-end phablet largely remained a mystery... until now, that is.
An unnamed representative for a South Korean telecom informed ET News
that the Note 8 will become commercially available on September 15 in the East Asian country. Currently, it is not known whether the handset will hit the shelves on the same day in other major markets as well, but this is certainly a possibility, as Sammie employed this approach
with the Galaxy S8
Another telecom rep informed ET News that “Samsung Electronics [has] decided on the release date of Galaxy Note 8.” and that “There is almost zero chance that it will change the release date of Galaxy Note 8.” There's also a belief that the Galaxy Note 8 may have a two-week pre-order window.
What's also interesting is that the Note 8 could potentially start selling on the same day as LG's V30
smartphone, as that specific date was apparently mentioned in some media reports. In any case, we're bound to find out more as we get closer and closer to the end of August.
