Today Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Note 8. The handset is every bit as powerful and feature-rich as one might expect, and it looks like Samsung is more than willing to charge a pretty penny to get it into people’s hands.
Carriers have started revealing what they will be charging for the Galaxy Note 8. At the time of publication, only T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon have confirmed pre-order information, so as soon as carriers like Sprint and U.S. Cellular announce their own info, we’ll update this post accordingly.
But, here’s how it looks so far:
T-Mobile will offer the Galaxy Note 8 for a full retail price of $930. Customers can choose the Equipment Installment Plan that’ll cost $210 down and then $30 per month or the JUMP! On Demand plan which will cost $0 down and then $39 per month after that.
AT&T is charging $950 outright for the Galaxy Note 8. If you prefer monthly installments, the big blue carrier will price the Note 8 at $31.67 per month for 30 months with AT&T Next.
Verizon Wireless is charging $960 for the Galaxy Note 8 at full retail, or $40 per month for 24 months.
Sprint finally got around to announcing pricing, and it’s right in line with the other major wireless carriers, but there’s a few important bits. That includes for those who switch to the Now Network, who will get 50 percent off the Galaxy Note 8′s lease pricing, and then pay $20 per month with $0 down with 18 Sprint Flex payments.
U.S. Cellular has also confirmed its pricing breakdown. The Galaxy Note 8 will retail for $963, and subscribers can pay $32.10 for 30 months on an equipment installment plan. It’s also available as a prepaid device for $899.99.
It’s worth noting that in all of these cases, the Note 8 is equipped with 64GB of storage. You’ll have to choose either Midnight Black or Orchid Gray, too, as Deepsea Blue and Maple Gold aren’t available in the U.S. at launch.
Samsung is also offering a deal for pre-orders where customers can choose either a Gear 360 camera or an accessory bundle that includes a 128GB microSD card and a wireless charging pad as a free gift.
Which carrier are you going with to get your Galaxy Note 8?
