With a brilliant curved-edge display and cutting-edge configurations onboard,?Samsung?s Galaxy Note 7 became official just over a couple of hours back. Here in this post, we have listed down the best note 7 deals and the alternatives available in the U.S.
The Galaxy Note 7 brings a?plethora of features to the power-packed phablet. It has an iris scanner, Corning?s latest Gorilla Glass 5 panel protection, a very generous battery unit and not to forget, the very important water and dust-resistant exterior. To top it all off, the South Korean tech giant has introduced a stellar color called ?Coral Blue.?
If these features are not enough, the?S Pen stylus, which is unique to the Note series of Samsung, has been tweaked and it truly comes across as an advanced accessory. The new stylus is reportedly very accurate and responsive when compared to the predecessor. And, more importantly, unlike the Note 5, this S Pen doesn?t get into trouble in case you plug the stylus back to the device in a wrong way. And, oh, this accessory is also water resistant.
With these killer features onboard, there is no doubt that Galaxy Note 7 will cost an arm and a leg. Nevertheless, we have to mention that Samsung has tried to offer good value for money to its customers.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Deals, Price, Availability & Pre-order Details
The Galaxy Note 7?s price in the U.S. is $849.99 without a contract. However, network carriers and e-retailers are very generous in tossing in impressive note 7 deals.
Unlike BlackBerry handsets, there is no restriction for Samsung devices in general, as most of the networks and even retailers are selling this device. The pre-order window of the Note 7 starts on August 3 and the device will hit the store shelves on August 19, says?CNet.
If you are planning to pre-order from Amazon, Best Buy, Car Toys, Sam’s Club, Target and Walmart, August 3 is the date to be marked on the calendar.
Best Buy?s Best Note 7 Deal
As it turns out, Best Buy has the best Note 7 deal out of the other e-retailers. It is letting the customers choose between a free Gear Fit 2 and a 256GB microSD card with the pre-order. At this point, Best Buy is the only retailer offering a freebie. But, it is just a matter of time before other e-retailers catch up with a similar deal.
