Samsung Galaxy Note8 Available in Stores and Online Starting Today Following Strong Global Preorder Sales

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics America, Inc., announced the Galaxy Note8 will be
available for purchase starting today at AT&T, C Spire, Sprint, Straight
Talk Wireless, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless and Xfinity
Mobile as well as all Best Buy stores, BestBuy.com, ShopSamsung app and
Samsung.com, Target and Walmart. Availability begins as Galaxy Note8
preorders significantly surpassed that of previous Samsung Note phones
during the same preorder time period.

The Galaxy Note8, Samsung’s third flagship phone of the year, features a
bigger 6.3-inch Infinity Display so consumers can view more and scroll
less. Its enhanced S Pen1 allows users to capture Screen off
memos, create Live Message2 and multitask on the go. It also
offers Samsung’s best-ever smartphone camera and Samsung’s first dual
camera smartphone, with two 12MP rear cameras and the world’s first
smartphone with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both wide-angle and
telephoto lenses.

With the general availability of the Galaxy Note8, Samsung now offers
three flagship smartphones with edge-to-edge screens to meet the
different needs of consumers. Today, people can choose between the
Galaxy S8’s immersive screen in a compact package, the bigger screen and
longer battery life of the Galaxy S8+, or the Galaxy Note8’s ability to
capture, create and multitask. When it comes to choosing a new
smartphone, consumers don’t have to settle for less with Samsung’s three
innovative devices—each with expandable memory, fast wireless charging,
headphone jack, IP68 water and dust resistance and world-class cameras.

“At Samsung, we’re constantly innovating to deliver new smartphone
experiences that inspire, empower and delight,” said Tim Baxter,
President and Chief Executive Officer at Samsung Electronics North
America. “From the powerful dual camera to the versatile S Pen and the
immersive big-screen, the Galaxy Note8 was designed for productivity and
self-expression. With its addition to the Galaxy series, Samsung now
offers three incredible smartphones that showcase the most advanced
technology our industry has to offer.”

Ad Campaign

Samsung debuted a new commercial highlighting the Galaxy Note8 in
advance of retail availability. The new ad, titled “I
Love You,”
is a modern day love story bringing to life Live Messages
on the Note8 and how it can show the most important people in our lives
that we are thinking of them.
