Galaxy Note 8 pre-order gifts include a Gear 360 camera but not if you’re in the EU
Samsung is keeping up with its tradition of offering gifts to customers who pre-order its latest flagship smartphone. It has confirmed today the various gifts that Galaxy Note 8 pre-order customers will get if they put money down for the handset.
Pre-order customers in the United States and other launch markets will receive a choice. They can either opt for a Gear 360 (2017) VR camera which costs $229 or a bundle which contains a 128GB microSD card and a convertible fast wireless charging pad.
Customers in the EU will not receive the same pre-order gifts, though. Those who put money down for a Galaxy Note 8 in markets across Europe will be offered a DeX dock instead. I’m sure many would rather prefer to get a new Gear 360 camera but for some reason, Samsung isn’t extending the same courtesy to them.
Samsung’s carrier and retail partners will start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 8 from tomorrow. Pricing is going to vary by market. The company has confirmed that its new flagship smartphone is going to be released worldwide on September 15.
