Brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on sale for $520

Brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on sale for $520

Rumour mills have also given us a fair idea on what to expect from Samsung's latest flagship smartphone.

Meanwhile, today's leak also includes plenty of marketing material to peruse, including showcasing the new Bluetooth-equipped S Pen, the dual cameras on the back of the Note 9, and the built-in DeX support so you can get a PC-like experience just by plugging the Galaxy Note 9 in, meaning there's no need for a base station anymore.

Furthermore, Epic Games already has an apparent partnership with Samsung, since all those who pre-order the Note 9 will be receiving 15,000 V-Bucks. According to an ad found within the My Verizon app, Verizon will offer this Galaxy Note 9 promotion for pre-orders. So far, we have seen a ton of leaks about the device.

Initial reports suggested that Fortnite would be exclusive to the Note 9 for 30 days before appearing on other Android devices. In fact, the S9 and S9+ received an unprecedented price cut less than a month after they launched in the US. As for the color options, Samsung will be selling the Note 9 in Midnight Black, Metallic Copper, Ocean Blue, and Lilac Purple. That makes sense for a couple reasons - for starters, the Note 9 isn't expected to be that big a departure from last year's Note 8, at least in terms of design. Before you get too excited, this Value Pack could be just a review unit for bloggers.

NASCAR chief Brian France takes ‘indefinite leave’ after DUI & drug arrest
But many believe Jim France, the second son of NASCAR's founder, can be a steadying hand in trying times for the series. In a statement released by NASCAR, Brian France says he'll be taking an indefinite leave of absence .

When Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note 9 later this week, it's likely to tout the increased processing power, expansive screen and enhanced S Pen as reasons to pony up for a new smartphone. It is doubtful Samsung will change that strategy anytime soon. According to Roland Quandt, Galaxy Note 9 128GB unlocked will cost 899 GBP in the United Kingdom which is around $1,200.

And they even have some news on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch, noting that it will come in 46mm and 42mm sizes, with the larger model lasting up to 7 days and having a similar footprint to the Samsung Gear Sport.

BOGO deals pop up all the time, but investing in such an offer right out of the gate is clearly an effort to boost sales volume.
