Samsung opens Galaxy Note 9 reservations, confirms August 24 release date
Samsung is now taking reservations for the Galaxy Note 9. Reservations are different from pre-orders, the company is basically allowing interested customers to sign up in order to get notified when its next flagship smartphone becomes available for pre-order.
It has put up a page on its US website where customers can go and provide their details to be notified when more details become available. It has also confirmed the rumored August 24 release date for the Galaxy Note 9.

Samsung has done this in the past as well. It invites fans to provide their details so that they can be provided with additional details once the handset is officially announced. Samsung India has a similar page up for the Galaxy Note 9 on its website as well.
Samsung US is also asking customers to select the carrier they would prefer to purchase the Galaxy Note 9 on. They can also opt for an unlocked variant. The same can also be done from the Shop Samsung app that’s available from the Google Play Store.
Samsung promises that those who make their reservations now will be granted “early access to pre-order.” These customers have also been “guaranteed delivery by 8/24.” This more or less confirms reports that the Galaxy Note 9 release date is August 24.
Customers in the United States will also be able to take advantage of Samsung Trade-In. The program will enable them to save up to $450 when they trade-in an eligible device after purchasing the Galaxy Note 9.
The company will officially unveil the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 in New York City. It will confirm pricing at the event. If the reports about the Galaxy Note 9 price we have seen so far are accurate then the handset will cost close to $1,000.
