The Samsung Galaxy Note8 launched last week to much fanfare. The device will be Samsung’s first foray into the dual camera sensor arena with both a telephoto and wide angle sensor. It will also be Samsung’s eighth iteration of its widely acclaimed Galaxy Note series if smartphones (Yes, we did take the Note Edge into consideration). With all these features waiting for you, we can understand if you can’t hold back your excitement for pre-orders – we are too!
Before we dive into the freebies and goodies that the pre-order will bring along with it, let’s take a little flashback on what exactly you’ll be getting in the Galaxy Note8. The Note8 will be the first device with Samsung’s 10nm processor architecture technology which brings more efficient performance in a much, much smaller space. In addition, it will come with either 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of internal memory and 6GB of RAM. It will also support for up to 256GB through microSD card expansion. It will also be sporting a 6.3-inch version of Samsung’s “unboxed” QuadHD+ SuperAMOLED display with its 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The best and most essential part of any Note device is the S-Pen; the Galaxy Note8 is no exception to the rule. The new version of the S-pen sports higher sensitivity with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and 0.7mm tip.
In Malaysia, this is going to set you back a whopping RM3,999 (USD936.96). Cheaper than the U.S. but still a little more of a pinch than the Galaxy S8+. It will be available in Midnight Black, Maple Gold and Orchid Grey at launch. So, what will you get with your pre-order? Well, you’ll get the Note8! That’s it!
Just kidding, you’ll also get extended warranty through Samsung’s Protection Plus plan which is worth RM298 (USD$69.83) and a free 5,100mAh Battery Pack worth RM269 (USD$63). In the box, you’ll be getting a free clear cover. However, specially for those who are getting the pre-orders, you’ll be getting an RM321 (USD$75.22) cash rebate on your pre-order. We’ll be updating you on how exactly this mechanism is going to work.
So are you getting the Galaxy Note8 on preorder?
