Galaxy Note 7 US pre-order and release date revealed by alleged leaked memo

Someone who claimed to be working for Verizon has leaked details of an alleged memo that was sent by the carrier to store employees today. The memo reveals Galaxy Note 7 US pre-order and release dates. It mentions that the Galaxy Note 7 will be available for pre-order on Verizon starting August 3, one day after the handset is unveiled tomorrow, August 2. Previous reports claimed that the handset will be available for pre-order immediately after its announced.

Samsung is also going to introduce a new Gear VR alongside the Galaxy Note 7 tomorrow and the memo mentions that this new headset will be available from Verizon stores starting August 4. It doesn’t mention anything about Samsung giving away a free Gear VR unit to customers who pre-order a Galaxy Note 7 like it did with those who pre-ordered the Galaxy S7 earlier this year. The Galaxy Note 7 release date is claimed to be August 19 in the memo. This hasn’t been confirmed by Samsung or Verizon as yet but if it’s true expect a similar timeframe for other US carriers as well.
