Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price: how much will it cost?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price is still going to be big, just like it's epic 6.3-inch display size, and we know that even if we technically don't know the price yet.

That's because we paid a lot for the slightly smaller Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus that cost $825 (£779, AU$,349) or, on contract in the US, $35 a month. Ouch.

And we fully expect the Note 8 to be a tad more expensive. It always includes an S Pen stylus and leaks specs to a dual-lens camera and 6GB of RAM specs.

That's going to drive the Galaxy Note 8 price up, at least at launch.

But wait, there will be Note 8 bundles

So you won't find a cheap Galaxy Note 8, but you can get it for full price with a Samsung Gear 360 camera or a microSD card and fast wireless charger bundle.

These pre-order promotions actually last for a month, 15 days after the phone release date on September 15. This will ease the high price a little bit.

It's not going to save you money, but it does increase the value and having two bundle options instead of one is ideal in case you already have a 360 camera.

The unlocked Note 8 price

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will launch on day one as an unlocked phone in the US, a rare move by any other smartphone maker aside from Apple.

This means you won't be tied down to a specific carrier in the US, though AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile will still be selling this phone on a monthly contract.

What does else does this mean? No force carrier apps (read: US carrier ads). It'll just include the apps that Google and Samsung had intended. Fantastic.

More Note 8 price announcements to come

We're hoping to hear how much the Note 8 will cost during today's keynote which is happening right now.

We'll continue to update this page, however, we expect it to be a tad pricier than the S8 Plus price of $825 (£779, AU$,349) or $35 a month.
