Samsung knew if they used SD 821 + 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage + bigger 6 to 5.8 inch screen, they would never be able to price this device competitively.

The Snapdragon 830 will be over Snapdragon 821 some 60% increase of performance and will be quad-core note deca-core like Helio X30, even so will beat Helio X30 in single-core.

This is over priced considering it's not really offering any significant upgrades in terms of specs over the S7/Edge combo.
Quite disappointed with it overall really.
Considering some news outlets had ther phone at £749 I'll take this price.

Samsung does what it does best, follow in Apple's footsteps and hike up prices insanely high and it just gets higher
That is very spendy, so let's hope Samsung launch a USB-C powered ultra thin portable monitor and phone dock, with optional Bluetooth keyboard so you can convert the Note into a desktop/laptop simply using the USB-C cable. (Like MHL, but better.)
This pricing explains why there were NONE of the more or less usual major upgrades in the display size and resolution, RAM, storage, and SoC (over the S).
