Samsung recently confirmed that the Galaxy Note 7 will be launched on August 2, agreeing with the previously leaked date by the notorious Evan Blass.
In addition, latest rumors claim that the Note 7 might see the light on the same date in some markets, but this has not been confirmed by Samsung in any capacity. Nevertheless, we have even better news for you all Galaxy Note 7 enthusiasts in the U.S. as T-Mobile has just revealed that it will be offering the phablet on a buy-one-get-one free promotion when it is finally here.
According to rumors and leaks, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will indeed be one of the best smartphones in 2016. This is backed by the success the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have seen since their release in March and the fact that a lot of what is already available on these handsets will be retained for the Note 7.
The latest reports from T-Mobile are not yet official, but it is easy to believe anything that comes from guess who? Evan Blass. Apparently, the serial leaker has already dug out some information from the carrier’s safe, revealing through his Twitter account that the Galaxy Note 7 will be sold on a BOGO promo later next month.
Notice anything unusual? Well, it is not common for a BOGO promo to be offered on a flagship handset in its initial days of release. If this will indeed be happening, T-Mobile will basically be looking to take advantage of the success of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge as well as the general popularity of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 series in the country. Of course, the hype that has been following the Galaxy Note 7 will make anyone, including those who own the magnificent Galaxy Note 5, want to upgrade to this new handset. This is a chance for T-Mobile to add more subscribers to its platform.
T-Mobile is one of the leading carriers in the U.S. and one thing it is known for is that the executives aren’t afraid of making bold steps in the market – this Galaxy Note 7 BOGO promo could just be one of those occasions.
We’ll keep following the matter and let you know the full pricing details once they become available. We’ll also let you know if Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and U.S. Cellular will come in with similar deals in future.
