With the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has yet again produced something that looks utterly stunning and has the specifications and features to match. In this article, I am going to tell you when it will be available in the U.S. and the U.K. and where you will be able to pre-order and get your hands on one.
Getting your hands on a Galaxy Note 7
Starting with the U.S., there’s a good chance that you will have to pay somewhere around $850 for the privilege of owning one. While that is a huge chunk of change, it was inevitable that the price would be bumped up because it is the first Note to offer a flexible dual-edge display.
In a rare interview with Harvard Business School that was published online earlier this month, (it has since been taken down) value investor Seth Klarman spoke at length about his investment process, philosophy and the changes value investors have had to overcome during the past decade.

Thankfully, Samsung is going to throw in some rather significant gifts for early adopters of the handset, such as a Gear Fit2 or a 256GB memory card. It is also expected that some carriers and third-party retailers will chip in with their own offers. So there is some chance that the price will vary depending on where you get your Galaxy Note 7 from.

Where to pre-order the Galaxy Note 7 in the U.K.
Pre-orders for the Note 7 are due to start in the U.K. on August 16, and if you manage to do that, you could get your hands on one as early as August 20. Otherwise, you will have to wait until September 2 to get one. However, retailers have yet to release information on what offers will be available in the U.K., and this could be due to the fact that the Note 7 is due for release at a later date than it is in the U.S.
|Retail price||Sim Free||24 Contract||12 Contract||Color||Extras|
|MobileFun||£749||YES||N/A||N/A||Black Onyx||Pre-order before 19th August and get a free case or cover|
|O2||TBD||TBD||O2 Refresh||O2 Refresh||TBD||TBD|
The information in the tables above was correct at the time of writing this article. However, I would expect the information and the gifts and extras that are going to be included in deals to change both in the U.S. and the U.K. as we get closer to their respective release dates.
What you should do now is take a look at your preferred retailer, carrier or network and see if there is any information. In the meantime, one of my colleagues here at ValueWalk or I will keep you updated with any price changes, extra information etc.
