Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be launched on August 23rd, and pre-orders may start on the very next day.
The Korean manufacturer is unveiling their latest flagship in a few days, and everyone is eager to see it. After the Note 7 fiasco, the faith of the entire series was uncertain. The long-awaited Galaxy Note 7 (expected to be named Note 6) was launched in September 2016. It was discontinued due to reports of overheating and catching fire.
Many thought Samsung will completely kill it, but the company decided not to do so. They are about to introduce Galaxy Note 8, and it will happen on August 23rd. According to a famed leaker, Evan Blass, pre-orders may start the next day, on August 24, and the release date is September 15.
Note8 pre-orders from Samsung (starting 8/24) come with a 256GB microSD card plus choice of convertible wireless charger or 360 cam.

In this tweet, Blass shared the pre-order date along with the info that Note 8 will come with some pretty awesome extras. He then made a correction about the extras.
CORRECTION: the options are as follows
1. 256GB card + wireless charger
2. 360 cam
Sorry for the confusion. https://t.co/Db42n4kVCf

As you can see from the Blass’s tweet, Galaxy Note 8 will come with a 256GB microSD card and a wireless charger, or a 360-degree camera. According to Blass, buyers in Europe will get a DeX dock as a pre-order gift.
If you are a fan of Note series and planning to get the latest flagship, this deal sounds pretty cool. Buying these separately will cost you a lot more and this way you can save a lot of money.
According to VentureBeat, Galaxy Note 8 will be the most expensive phone Samsung has ever launched and it will cost €999. If you have the budget and if you are willing to forget the Note 7 debacle, consider pre-ordering the phone.
