Samsung says that more people in the U.S. have purchased the Galaxy Note8 than previous Samsung Note phones during the same time period.
Introduced on August 23, the Galaxy Note8 - featuring the largest ever screen in a Note device, an enhanced S Pen, and two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses - will be available in stores on September 15.
In 2011, Samsung pioneered the big-screen smartphone category with the original Galaxy Note. Since then, the Note series has continued to define and redefine this space by introducing features like the iconic S Pen, fast wireless charging, as well as water and dust resistance. The Galaxy Note8 has an immersive 6.3 inch Infinity Display in a narrower form factor that makes it easy to hold in one hand.
Consumers who purchase a Galaxy Note8 between August 24, 2017, and September 24, 2017, get their choice of a free Samsung Gear 360 camera ($229.99 retail value) or a free Galaxy Foundation kit with a Samsung 128GB EVO+ microSD card and Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible ($189.98 retail value). The promotion will last for a limited time and only while supplies last.
