Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is set to be released in US on September 15

Just because we are only a couple of days away from the official launch of the Galaxy Note 8 at an Unpacked event in New York on Wednesday doesn’t mean that the leaks have dried up. More details have emerged about the US release date as well as the bundle options you can expect to see. 

While a previous leak says that you’ll be able to pre-order the Galaxy Note 8 from August 24th, the day after its been announced, serial leaker Evan Blass has tweeted that the handset will be released in the US on September 15th. He has also reported that when pre-ordering, you’ll have the choice of either a 256GB MicroSD card and wireless charger or a 360 camera, likely to be the Gear 360 Cam that launched along with the Galaxy S8 earlier this year.


The Galaxy Note 8 is widely believed to sport a hefty price tag, so any added value will be a boon to early adopters. Is the alleged bundle options enough to tempt you into pre-ordering Samsung’s newest model in the Galaxy Note series or has last year’s Galaxy Note 7 fiasco made you a little wary of being an early adopter?
