Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to be launched in September, free 256 GB microSD cards offered with pre-orders

Last week, we heard that the Galaxy Note 8 could be released on August 24, just one day after Samsung's Unpacked event where the handset will be officially announced. However, according to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), who almost always gets things right when it comes to leaked information, August 24 is the day when the new Note will only be available to pre-order.

Apparently, the launch date of the Galaxy Note 8 is set for September 15, at least in the US. The good news is that folks who pre-order the smartphone will receive a free 256 GB microSD card, in addition to a free convertible wireless charger, or a Gear 360 camera (customers should be able to choose between the charger and the camera, not both).

It's not unusual for a flagship Galaxy phone to come with freebies at launch, so we're not at all surprised to hear that Samsung isn't excluding the Note 8 from this recent tradition (if we can call it that).

The Galaxy Note 8 will probably look like this, and should become the most powerful Note to date. It might also be the most expensive Galaxy Note yet, but we'll see about that.

If you're thinking of buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, are you happy with the freebies that will reportedly come with it?
