Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pricing could start at €849

By now, it is pretty much guaranteed that the Galaxy Note 7 will come with a dual-edge display, and that a flat version might not exist. Other than the cool factor, an Edge screen means a higher price tag, and the Galaxy Note 7 could be the costliest flagship from the Korean manufacturer yet. Our sources tell us the Note 7 could start at €849 in Europe, €50 more than the Galaxy S7 edge.

The Galaxy Note lineup has always commanded a higher price tag than the Galaxy S series, and given Samsung is going all in with just a curved screen variant for the Galaxy Note 7, the pricing shouldn’t really be surprising. Sadly, it does mean that a lot of folks who have been looking forward to the Note 7 could be put off from buying it, or at least be forced to wait a couple of months for the price to come down.

The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to carry specs similar to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, with the addition of features like an iris scanner, a USB Type-C port, a larger battery, and possibly 6GB of RAM. The phablet will also be offered in a new color variant judging by a leaked render, and if the rumors are true, Samsung will take the wraps off the Galaxy Note 7 in a little over three weeks.

What do you think about the Note 7’s price tag, and about Samsung’s decision to not launch a cheaper flat screen variant?

When a person will say “No matter the price I will pay it” you hurt the product and it’s future. That is to say your a buyer who will pay for a marginally upgraded product just for the sake of having the latest thing! If consumers could band together and strike off a purchase and state those reasons then and only then will forced change happen. Till then you simply become one of the millions upon millions of lemmings headed for the cliffs to start on your ocean journey. While others make smarter choices and get innovation from other vendors… Read more »

Exactly. Let us do whatever we want. Some people just prefer this over that.

how’s that so hard to understand?

No matter the price, I will pay it. Though I will be disappointed if I have to keep moving files between SD card and internal phone storage. Hopefully they´ll get it right and make it possible for us to merge the storage with certain cards.

If Sammy integrates UFS slot then the Adoptable Storage feature from Android will make sense!

You mean whether to buy or not to buy, they aren’t rumors these devices have been through certs and benched. That is what they will be. Same 620 as S7 and to call this advance in cost and go all the way to 621 or 623 and 6 gigs ram is a money grubbing insult to those that know what is what and quite frankly a joke to call this the advance that fights the flagship Apple product and THATS REALITY!

Am tired from so big phones.I have been with note since Note 2. Am gonna buy a S7 EDGE.

Rumors cause us all to be disappointed when we think the Note 7 is going to 6Gb Ram when it’s really going to have 4Gb of Ram or when the Soc is going to be 820 instead of a 821 SoC.

So it’s just better to wait for Samsung to reveal the truth. I’ve had mixed emotions where to buy or not to buy the Note 7 do to these rumors. It’s just too confusing. So I am going to stop reading all these so called rumors and just wait for Samsung.

The price tag doesn’t bother me. I would have liked a White variant. Otherwise I’ll go with the Silver Titanium. Another thing I really would like to see is to ensure that there will be 6Gb of Ram and 4000mAh battery. Everything else I can live with.

I currently own a GS7 edge. i have been with Samsung from s4 and have been upgrading yearly ever since with its S series. i was going to buy the note 5 last year but after watching the reviews, i didn’t bother to go through with it, because i didn’t see much improvements over the S6 which i had at the time. now with the Note 7 less than a month away and considering that the s7 and edge just launched a few months ago, i don’t think there will be enough new features and improvements to get me to… Read more »

Sammy has lost it! To think I get minimal or next to nothing to “Upgrade” for the money they are asking me to pay. With NO SOC upgrade it’s basically a S7 Edge with a little bigger screen and a pen. WOW…I WANT IT ..IV’E GOT TO HAVE IT… Now here is another REALLY BIG ISSUE! When the screen is curved you have a protection issue because the device cannot wear a tempered glass screen protector and my S7 Edge already has several micro scratches that really piss me off because I am SUPER CAREFUL and yet I cannot keep… Read more »

I posted a similar comment in one of the articles last week but it never appeared. What about  Note 4 (2016) with the exact hardware (plastic back and removable battery) and some improvement in the software? Like: -the S7 camera. -IP 67 water-dust resistan like S5 (No need of IP68 but welcome if it doesn’t add too much to the cost of production and therefore the cost of the device) -Better fingerprints scanner like on S6/S7/ not swipping (should be easy to change). -Obviously Marshmallow 6.0.1 with all the current features. I know this is a long shot but just in… Read more »

Glad it is the edge configuration. Love the no battery and the price is right. Will probably get one to go along with my edge 7.

No No samsung, enough is enough, this price is abuse, personally I expected the long note 7. I was proud of the galaxy s3 I want to replace with note 7, so do not disappoints your customers. X(

They miss the 6″ N7 flat at 750. With again a 5.7″ screen, why the premium?

Flat 6″ with removable battery, that would be a deal for me ! 🙂 But this wont just happen.

Won’t even buy it when the price comes down. As with the Note 5, the so called new “features” are much more about showcasing new technology that most average users will never use or need, and less about true user function and flexibility. When I put a case on my phone to protect it, who needs a pretty, fragile, glass back? When my banks CC’s are incompatible with Samsung Pay, why should I pay for the hardware that it uses? When a curved screen is primarily there for looks and less about true function on a daily basis, why does… Read more »

Note 7 is going to be quite disappointing…. Wild guess: same basic platform as S7, with bigger battery/screen and stylus. That’s it. – Iris scanner is highly doubtful based on the visual leakages that are available on web. – CPU+RAM seems to be reported identical to the S7 on benchmark reports also leaking. – Biggest bottleneck remains the non-removable battery. That is a real problem for heavy users….. changing the battery during the lifetime of a phone is quite common. Samsung should have proposed an option either to have an IP68 phone with non-removable battery, or to have a non… Read more »

Better to wait for some months, 849€ is so much and to that, in 6 months, it’s then an old——————

If I can use my Autocad easily, might be awkward with a curved screen, so will have to test it out first, and I get a decent price for my Note 5, should do as it’s only a year old and completely scratch free and treated like a baby, I will probably get one. All depends on if I can still do my work with it. I would prefer a flat screen, doesn’t even have to be cheaper if the specs are good. Resigned myself to no flat screen variant which is a bit crazy for a device that engineers… Read more »

Can you root it safely ? Are you gonna encounter knox problems and battery issues and random crap ? Paying a fortune for top hardware and then you cant actually use it like you want to ? Im staying put until this is sorted. Hey might even wait until a foldable screen comes out….

Compared to the €1000 price tag of the rumoured iPhone 7, people will see this as a bargain! Lol. I’m gonna wait for the S8 or Note8. I have the S6 Edge+ and love the edge screen so the Note 7 is great

Most people who are going to buy it will wait till Christmas. By then the price should have fallen more than 20%. I will buy it, although I am not in favour of the edge screen, in the region of €550 after 6 months

Though I am planning to buy butThat’s too much for a cell phone. Samsung should seriously consider it’s pricing… it will lose some of it’s loyal customers.

It just means I will have to wait until December to buy one. Price should have greatly collapsed by then 🙂

Holy crap, that is steep. You can pick up a Note 4 for around 4-500 euro and it has some features the N7 hasn’t that most people miss.
– IR blaster
– Removable battery
– Flat screen

I remember the N3 coming in hot on the pricetag and it had some rebates/discounts a few months later to get sales going again.

I just received my two extra batteries for my note 4 , that gives me a total of four of them … Will keep the two new ones for future use , as of now the two I use still last up to 1 1/2 – 2 days on a full charge each of moderate use and one full day ( 10 hrs. ) of heavy use …. I’ve not rooted my phone but with marshmallow installed and using Greenify as well as Package disabler Pro ( witch gets rid of all bloat ware and battery sucking carrier apps without… Read more »
