While it's confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note8 will be unveiled on August 23, there have been no official word on the device's market launch date. Reports so far have pointed to September 15 as a possible date.
But according to a new rumor, the handset may launch way sooner than that at least in some markets. In fact, the rumor says the device will be available for purchase on August 24 in the US. Yes, that's the day following its announcement.
The intel comes from a Best Buy employee who got confirmation through both Verizon and Samsung channels.
While that's certainly good news for Samsung fans in the US, we'd advise against getting your hopes too high as the date might just be a start of the pre-order campaign.
It's not that black and white. They may be an update behind but they are usually ahead in the aspects and features that those updates have before other phones get them.
I agree with you. However, Sam. isn't exactly expedient in their Droid' OS releases.
