The stage is all but set and ready for the unveiling and official unboxing of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in just a little over a week from now.
While Samsung has not come out with any details regarding the specifications, design or even price of the Galaxy Note 7, leaks, speculations and rumors have done just that. As for now, we already have a clear picture of what the Note 7 will look like when it is unveiled at an Unpacked event in New York City on August 2.
The early August announcement of the phone is in itself a record time for the Galaxy Note 7, especially when looking at past events with respect to the Note series. Samsung tried this trick with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and it worked – the Korean tech giant is hoping that this time, it will work even better. While there have been rumors that the Galaxy Note 7 could probably be available for purchase in launch markets, we now have some news to back up this rumor.
Apparently, customers in Dubai can start making pre-orders for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phablet. This means that indeed the phone will be unboxed during the same day of its launch in order for the devices to reach out to these early adopters on time.
To make a pre-order, one must make a deposit of about $130 or AED 500, but this can only happen from now up to August 2. As noted earlier, this is the day that Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 7 to the world. When you pre-order a Note 7, a 128GB microSD card will also be included, which is a weird decision from Samsung considering that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge came bundled with a free Samsung Gear VR headset for all those who pre-ordered it.
While this is happening in Dubai, there are also unconfirmed reports coming in with claims that T-Mobile will also begin taking pre-orders of the Galaxy Note 7 as from next week. In addition, the report adds that the American carrier will also release the Note 7 on the same day the phone is unveiled. With the launch event set to take place in New York, it is possible that the other carriers will also jump onto this bandwagon and start taking pre-orders sooner than later.
