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?

256GB inbuilt + 256GB memory card? 512GB is a lockdown sealed deal.

Add the 256GB card with a Gear 360 or Gear Fit... One heck of a deal.

Hi Horse, PA being as stupid as always have reported it wrongly. You will get 1). 256GB card + Wireless Charger or 2). A Gear 360 Camera You could choose either of the 2. Our European friends are getting a Dex station free on prebooking no choice for them.

Don't listen to this troll.... I am surprised he wasn't first with a statement so he can feel all big when a few more idiots thumb up his arse.

Usually be cries, because no matter how hard he tries, Samsung phones are still the best reviewed on the planet. Impotence makes him despondent.

You typed that post with a straight face troll. Planet Fitness diss on the way.

No he didn't. He typed it with a face contorted with pain and streaked with tears.

at least they give you something (and something that is actually useful) with the purchase of a 1000-ish dollar phone, what does your beloved company give you with your 1000-ish dollar purchase ?

Been rocking with the 256gb card since the S7 Edge I believe. Another one won't hurt. The 360 camera is tempting over the wireless charger.. Plus t-mobile sends out their pre-orders a little early so I'll definitely be getting that order in on the 24th..

I'm torn between the Camera and Charger. I have an older Wireless charger but its not fast charging. However the Camera is tempting..

If you will use the camera go for it. I paid like $50 for my fast charge wireless charger at Best Buy.

Awesome, just one way they're making it easy to justify the high price tag. Can't wait to see what else it'll come with.

I guess i will get one too. I'm pretty sure LG V30 will have something as well.
