[Update: Sprint and T-Mobile, too] Galaxy Note 8 now shipping to customers in the United States

The much-anticipated Galaxy Note 8 has now started shipping to customers who pre-ordered a unit in the United States, according to several reports on reddit. The handset is expected to arrive as soon as September 5, throwing the September 15 launch date out of the window.

I’m not entirely sold, though. Earlier this year, I received an alert informing me that my Galaxy S8 had been dispatched ahead of time, only to later find out it hadn’t; Samsung had merely filed a consignment notice with its delivery partner, which prematurely sent out shipping alerts.

The moral of the story? Don’t get your hopes up. Even if the notification turns out to be a mistake (we’re hoping it isn’t), the Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled to start shipping in the region in a little more than a week—so you won’t need to wait too much longer to get your hands on it.

Announced on August 23, the stylus-toting Galaxy Note 8 sports a stunning 6.3-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM, a 12MP dual-camera setup, an 8MP front-facing shooter and a slightly disappointing 3,300mAh battery.

Update: It appears that Sprint and T-Mobile have also started sending out shipments.

Got mine yesterday and I like what they’ve done with it.

That is a ridiculous price cut. Might as well give them away. If only they made mediocre phones, it would be so much easier to move to another OEM

I preordered from Samsung and I’ve not yet received any notification. Impatiently waiting.

They are coming. Mine is currently in a trailer at my local FedEx sort facility. It is being shipped to my house. I have pre-ordered before and the package stayed in Memphis,TN (the large national hub for FedEx) for over a week. My Note 8s left Memphis on Saturday and arrived locally (in Michigan) Sunday.

Price reduction on Note 8 is available only US. Why not in other country???? We have also purchased Note 7. if no problems arose we would have enjoyed our Note 7 very well.. but, as of now, the Price discount available only in USA not for other countries. what a brilliant PLAN Samsung..! All other Note 7 customers are being cheated by Samsung. Especially Indian market people are being cheated and within next THree months Note 8 price would go down to 65K from 70K. good samsung you keep cheating Indian people. We always there to support you… God bless… Read more »

Could it be that Samsung has started shipping Note 8 to the stores? Because I’ve got a confirmation from my vendor that they got my phone september 2nd. Now it just sits there and waits for september 14th (I assume they send it one day in advance).
