Samsung confirmed the?Galaxy Note 7 release date as August 2. This power-packed device will be introduced in New York, Rio and London all at the same time. With a couple of weeks before its release, we are hearing interesting news about this device being offered under a Buy-One-Get-One free promotional deal, also known as the ?BOGO deal.?
The South Korean tech giant changed the design of the flagship Galaxy S6 in 2015. This move was instantly appreciated by fans across the globe. This was followed by the release of the?Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge with premium design and cutting-edge configurations in tow. Samsung also listened to the feedback of its fan base and brought back the heavily-used features like the microSD card.
To top it off, carriers like T-Mobile offered BOGO deals to lure customers to purchase the incredible Samsung handset. This deal was applicable to anyone that planned to upgrade to the Galaxy S7, right after the release.
Meanwhile, Evan Blass of @evleaks fame has tweeted saying T-Mobile will be offering the same BOGO deal for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7. With this promotional deal, T-Mobile customers will be able to upgrade their existing phones to the new device. The other way is to add a new line with a Note 7 and get the second one free of cost.

Once T-Mobile customers opt for this BOGO deal, the carrier will apparently mail a prepaid MasterCard topped with the free handset?s worth in dollars. And this card can be used by the buyers as they see fit,?GSM Arena noted.
Needless to say, the BOGO deal will help drive up the sales of Galaxy Note 7 across the U.S. However, at this point, we do not know if other carriers would be interested in offering such a deal.
Also,?Apple?s iPhone 7 is gearing up for release. Will T-Mobile be offering a BOGO deal for the new iPhone? At this point, we cannot predict as the?iPhone 7 release date is set in September yet, near the holiday season. Nevertheless, it?s safe to assume that carriers might gauge the demand and popularity of the Galaxy Note 7 and other high-end devices, and will make a decision.
