Pricing for the Galaxy Note 8 could start at $940 in Asia

Pricing for the Galaxy Note 8 could start at as much as CNY 6,288 ($942) for the base variant—6GB/64GB—and top out at CNY 7,988 ($1,200) for the long-rumored Emperor Edition, which should come with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, in China, reports digital news outlet ITHome.

  • 6GB/64GB — CNY 6,288 ($942)
  • 6GB/128GB — CNY 7,088 ($1,062)
  • 6GB/256GB — CNY 7,988 ($1,200)

There’s no telling whether the aforementioned prices will apply in Australia, Europe and South America, though we’re expecting something similar; potentially even steeper in the latter region. At least, that’s what a prediction by reliable tipster Evan Blass has led us to believe.

Recent leaks, rumors and speculation suggest that the Galaxy Note 8 will sport a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 CPU and at least a 3,300mAh battery. It should also ship running Android 7.1.1 Nougat skinned with Samsung’s Experience user interface.

To encourage potential customers to place an order, Samsung will reportedly offer several incentives: those who reserve a unit in the US will be able to choose either a 256GB microSD card, a convertible wireless charger or a Gear 360, while folk in Europe will receive a DeX dock.

If it still has an SD Card I cannot fathom why someone would need a 256GB storage capacity. That doesn’t make sense to me.
Pricing is a bit much but with Android O officially landing today! – I feel the Note 8 may actually ship with O out of the box. especially if the actual device release is in September


I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one.


What will someone do with 256GB of storage on a phone? If you have that much music and movies, you are wasting too much time – time that could be spent learning something new or starting a new business. I have 16GB of music (from the Napster era) and an SD card works well.
