Finally, the much-awaited day has arrived. Well, in case you are wondering, today Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 8. After Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, this was the device everyone was waiting for.
We already know that the flagship phablet will be offered in three storage variants. While all the variants will have the same amount of RAM (6GB), the internal storage capacity will vary. The basic one with 64GB of storage is said to be the global version. The higher variants with 128GB and 256GB storage space will be exclusive to the Asian market.
Now, just hours before the official launch, the pricing of these models have been revealed. The Chinese website ITHome is behind this leak. Going by the publication's claims, the 64GB version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is priced at 6,288 Yuan, which is roughly Rs. 60,500.
The 128GB model will be sold for 7,088 Yuan (approximately Rs. 68,200) and the 256GB version will carry a price tag of 7,988 Yuan (approximately Rs. 77,000).
Needless to say, the pricing is ridiculously high. Especially in emerging markets like India, where pricing plays a huge part in buying decision, Samsung may want to slash the prices. On top of that, after the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, the South Korean company is trying desperately to make up for the loss it had to bear last year.
Notably, Galaxy Note 8 is not the only device that is likely to carry a high price tag. We are talking about the iPhone 8. Rumors have it, the upcoming Apple smartphone will be the most expensive iPhone ever.
However, we must inform you that the authenticity of the leak is not verified. So you should take the information lightly. Either way, we just have to wait for a few more hours to know the actual deal.
