Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy Note 8 as it will be the company’s first Note device to hit shelves across the globe after the Galaxy Note 7 disaster and everything that followed. It’s true that the Note FE was previously released in small quantities in some very select regions, but that’s just the rebranded Galaxy Note 7 with a smaller battery. As we are now less than two weeks from the Note 8’s launch date on August 23, sources have revealed how Samsung will go about selling it.
The new Note will be unveiled on August 23rd at an exclusive Samsung event in New York. The pre-order windows will open a week after that on September 1st in South Korea and it will remain open till September 10. After that will come the day of the grand release, which is reportedly set on September 15th. However, it is unclear whether this date is exclusive to South Korea or some other regions as well. Whatever the case is, we are pretty sure that the Note 8 will be hitting the US in roughly the same time. After the overwhelming response which Samsung received after they opened up pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, all carriers in Korea are hopeful that the Note 8 will even surpass that.
