Samsung are holding a press conference for their Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone on the 23rd of August. We previously heard that the handset would launch on the 24th of August. According to Evan Blass, pre-orders for the device will start on that date.
So if this information is correct, Samsung will start taking pre-orders on the handset on the 24th of August and then the handset will launch on the 15th of September.
Note8 pre-orders from Samsung (starting 8/24) come with a 256GB microSD card plus choice of convertible wireless charger or 360 cam.

2. 360 cam
