The return of the beloved Note brand to store shelves shapes up to be a triumph for fans and a return to form for Samsung. We’ve got all the information you need to know if you plan on picking one up.
The Note 8 is now available in stores, and there’s a variety of order offers to entice you: either a free Gear 360 camera (valued at $229.99) or a 128 GB Samsung EVO+ memory card and Fast Wireless Charging Convertible (valued at $189.99). These offers are available for orders placed between August 24 and September 24, but only while stocks last, so act fast.
The Galaxy Note 8 release date is set for today, September 15 in the US and 41 other countries. In the US, it will be available via Best Buy, Target and Walmart, as well as through Samsung and carriers including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Xfinity Mobile, C Spire, Cricket Wireless and Straight Talk Wireless. See below for carrier deals as they are announced.
The US will only get two colors. For now, the US market will only get the Midnight Black and Orchid Gray colors for carrier and unlocked versions, and Samsung has not yet confirmed which markets will get the Maple Gold and Deep Sea Blue color options.

The unlocked Galaxy Note 8 price starts at $929. That’s one expensive phone. The UK Galaxy Note 8 is going for £869.00 unlocked, and multiple US carriers have announced similar pricing structures below.
