Samsung just unveiled the Galaxy Note 8 in New York, and already people are begging to know how much it’ll cost. Surely, a phone with a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, Snapdragon 835, 6GB of RAM, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, an all-glass IP68 body, and the word “Samsung” on the back has to cost a lot of dough, right? Yup, you’re right.

Over at T-Mobile, the Uncarrier will be selling the Note 8 for $930, or $30 per month over the course of many months. That’s a lot of cash to put down on a smartphone, but it gets worse when you see what AT&T and Verizon are doing. Respectively, they’ll be selling the device for $950 and $960. We don’t know how much Sprint’s selling it for yet, but I’m sure it’ll be up there, too.

We’re waiting for the carriers’ product pages to go live, and once they do, we’ll let you know. For reference, the device will go up for pre-order tomorrow and will go on sale September 15th.

The handset will be sold through AT&T, C Spire, Cricket Wireless, Sprint, Straight Talk Wireless, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless, Xfinity Mobile,, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart. Preorders begin tomorrow, August 24th. It’ll go on sale September 15th. Pricing information can be found here. […]



  2. […] is doing right in this case. The Note 8 costs anywhere upwards of $900 which is seriously expensive for a smartphone. It only makes sense if you give your customers free […]



  3. […] Samsung is giving former Galaxy Note 7 owners a discount. According to the company, those who still have the device can trade it into the company and get up to $425 off the new Galaxy Note 8. In case you’re wondering, that’s roughly up to 46% off the new device if you consider the lower $930 price T-Mobile is charging. […]
