Now that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been launched, it is understandable why you may want to get your hands on what is a powerful and good looking device. However, not everywhere around the world will get the new Samsung Flagship at the same time, and it looks as though prices for it can vary depending on the network and color you choose. Here is the latest price and availability news for India and Pakistan, as well as the USA, Europe and others.
Galaxy Note 7 price and availability in India
On this coming Thursday the 11th of August, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note 7 officially in India to extremely high anticipation from the Indian public. As it stands, there is no information available as to when the handset will hit the shelves, but it is rumored to be roughly in line with a European market launch date of September the 2nd.
As for price, on Tuesday when Samsung announced the handset in New York, the price of the older Galaxy Note 5 immediately dropped. On Flipkart and Amazon in India, it fell from Rs 53,000 to Rs 39,999, as for the Galaxy Note 7, it is expected to cost somewhere between Rs 63,000 – 100,000.

Galaxy Note 7 price and availability in Pakistan
Will Pakistan get its own official launch party, the answer to that is probably not. It could be the case that the Indian launch on August 11th will be the official announcement for that part of the world.
Moving on to price, as there is with many different markets little information released at the moment, however, the handset is rumored to have a price somewhere between Rs 70,000 and 100,000.
Galaxy Note 7 price and availability in the USA
In the USA, the date officially set for the Galaxy Note 7 to hit the shelves is August 19th, but as to whether you will be able to get one on that date depends entirely on the carrier you use. It is being reported that some US carriers will not have the handset in stock until mid-September.
Unlike the few countries that we have prices for, in the USA there is already what is being called a price war going on. For example, if you are a T-Mobile customer ordering a Blue Coral 64GB variant will set you back $849.99. However, if you buy that same handset with Verizon connectivity, you would be paying $864.99. And as for AT&T, the price for the same Galaxy Note 7 is $879.99 USD.
Galaxy Note 7 price and availability in the UK
Even though Brexit means that the UK could soon leave the European market. For the moment in Samsung’s eyes, it still gets the Galaxy Note 7 at the same time as those on the mainland. This means that it will be available to pre-order on August 16th, but not actually hit the shelves until September 2nd.
As for the price, it has been set at £699, which is very close to that of the price in Euros.
Galaxy Note 7 price and availability in the European Union
On mainland Europe, many retailers have already begun their pre-order marketing campaigns for the Galaxy Note 7 and as with the UK, it’s release date it is expected to be nearly two weeks behind that of the USA. Pricing for the device could vary due to the overall size of the market. However, it is thought that most variants will be available for somewhere between €799 – €900.
Galaxy Note 7 price and availability in Dubai
If you want to get your hands on a Galaxy Note 7 right now, Dubai is the place to be! While it is not available almost anywhere else until mid-August or early-September a YouTube user who just happens to live in Dubai has managed to get his hands on a real retail unit.
In fact, the video has been posted to YouTube, and shows the proud Note 7 owner unboxing and checking out his new smartphone. As for the price, the handset in the video is a 64GB dual-SIM variant and cost him AED 2,999 ($815 USD).
Galaxy Note 7 price and availability in China
If you didn’t know rumors are circling all over the Internet, suggesting that Chinese smartphone buyers will be treated to their own variant of the Galaxy Note 7. While it looks like everyone else in the world will have to deal with 64GB of onboard storage and 4G of RAM, in China, the handset will feature a minimum of 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM.
Is this true? As it stands, Samsung has neither confirmed or denied this rumor, but there have been images leaked of this variant appearing on a Chinese website, which clearly shows that the device has more RAM than the variant available elsewhere.
As for a release date in China, there is no word as to when that will be. Yes, rumors are stating that a mid-September availability date is most likely, but until Samsung confirms that it should be taken with a pinch of salt.
