According to the previous reports, Samsung will finally announce its Galaxy Note 8 on August 23, 2017. Unfortunately, the company has not made an official statement about this and some new reports are suggesting that the device will actually hit the stores on September 15, 2017.
Well, some new rumors are now saying that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will actually be available for purchase on August 24, 2017 in the US. This is exactly only 1 day later after the rumored announcement.
This information comes from a “Best Buy” employee who got confirmation through Samsung and Verizon channels. This is really good news for the people who live in the US, but there are also high chances that August 24, 2017 will actually be the date when Samsung will start taking pre-orders for the handset.
