The launch of Galaxy Note 8 looks like the next trick from Samsung and this will be happening around August or September. We just got the hint on how much Galaxy Note 8 will cost. The super-sized phablet will likely cost the eager punters that are ready to pick it up a lot of cash. Yes, a lot of cash.
According to the news we got, Samsung is slapping 999 Euro price tag on the phone. Based on our calculation, that would be US $1,120, £875, and AU$1,475. However, it is rare to see straight currency conversions on phones, but we heard that Note 8 would retail for around US$925 in the States.
The source of this news has a long record of accurate phone leaks, so the prediction should be close to the accuracy or perfectly accurate. The 999 Euro Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price would make the most expensive smartphone Samsung has ever rolled out, and this means only people with deep pockets will be able to afford it.
The Galaxy Note 8 price tag should not surprise us
While the 999 Euro price tag raises the bar for expensive phones, we knew right from the time that Galaxy Note 8 will cost an enormous amount of money based on previous models. Just last year, Galaxy Note & was on sale at US$850, £749 and AU$1,349 before it was recalled.
We also heard the Note 8 would sport 6.3 AMOLED screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, camera that features two 12-megapixel lenses and 6GB of RAM. The S Pen stylus will still be included to distinguish the Galaxy Note 8 from the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus that was launched earlier this year.
According to the news source, just like the S8 phones, the Galaxy Note 8 will also have a fingerprint sensor around the back of the phone and will be available in blue, gold and black at launch. All these are not 100% confirmed, but closer to being certain.
