The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is official, and it will be available for preorder starting August 24th. To sweeten the deal, Samsung is tacking on freebies for preorders within the first month. If you preorder / buy a Galaxy Note 8 any time between August 24th and September 24th, it’ll come with your choice of either a free Samsung Gear 360 camera or a charging bundle — specifically, the “Galaxy Foundation Kit” bundle, valued at $190, which contains a free 128GB EVO+ memory card and wireless charging pad. The promotional period includes the time when the preorders go out and when major retailers like Best Buy and Walmart and carriers including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon begin to carry the Galaxy Note 8 on September 15th.
Samsung offered a similar promotion with the Gear 360 in May when the S8 and S8 Plus were announced, bundling the 360-degree handheld camera with a purchase of a new phone for just $49 extra.
