Samsung to Ship Pre-orders of Galaxy Note8 Early
Samsung have announced today that they are getting a head-start on the competition and will be sending out the Galaxy Note8 early to anyone who has pre-ordered the device. Shipments of pre-orders will occur from 20 September, a couple of days ahead of the official on sale date of 22 September.
“Although a high level of hype and anticipation for the Galaxy Note8 was expected, we have been overwhelmed with the success this product is attracting before it has even landed in store. In the first five days, we have seen our pre-orders grow almost four times that of the previous Note, which is testament to the market is responding to our latest mobile innovation,” said Todd Selwyn, Head of IM Product for Samsung NZ.
Equipped with a bigger Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand, the signature S Pen and a dual lens camera – the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is the next level Note for people who want to do bigger things.
“New Zealanders tend to be early adopters of technology, which is why a premium, high spec and powerful device like the Note8 can thrive in this market. It’s an exciting moment for us to be able to deliver the best and most highly anticipated Galaxy Note we’ve ever created to the Kiwis who’ve waited patiently to upgrade,” Selwyn continued.
Samsung pre-order customers will also receive a bonus 256GB SD memory card, to take full advantage of the Note8’s expandable memory.
The Note8 has an RRP of $1599, and will be available from Spark, 2 Degrees, Vodafone and Samsung’s online store in Midnight Black, Maple Gold and Orchid Grey (Spark exclusive).
