We’ve seen plenty of leaks surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but this is perhaps the first time we’ve heard of any concrete details on the pre-order status and official availability of the upcoming phablet. Apparently, the device will go on sale on 15 September; pre-orders are said to begin a day after the launch event too.
These details are revealed by none other than Evan Blass, or more prominently known by his Twitter handle @evleaks. According to Blass, Samsung will begin taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 8 on 24 August. To sweeten the deal, Blass mention that Samsung is also throwing in a couple of goodies with the Note 8 pre-order.
CORRECTION: the options are as follows
1. 256GB card + wireless charger
2. 360 cam

Those who pre-order the Galaxy Note 8 in the US can either get a 256GB microSD card along with a wireless charger, or just a 360-degree camera (likely the new Gear 360). Blass then elaborated that European pre-order is slightly different: Samsung is said to offer the DeX Station in the region.
Of course, as is always the case with leaked information, take these details with a grain of salt. That being said, these dates are very plausible, and Samsung is known for its aggressively product rollout. Hopefully, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will indeed be available from 15 September onwards; we’ll find out ourselves come 23 August.
