After the disastrous Note 7, Note 8 will be the newest arrival under the Note series and will be the point of concern of many tech enthusiasts, fans, and lovers of the Galaxy Note series. The Note 7 was recalled earlier in 2017 due to their faulty batteries, costing the company in terms of both branding and economy. However, S8 released soon after that helping Samsung to retain a contending spot in the smartphone market.

Amazon India has also featured a similar teaser which suggests that unlike S8, Note 8 will be Amazon’s Exclusive and will be available only on Amazon in India. As per the tipster Evan Blass @evleakes, the mobile will be available for pre-orders immediately from the next day after its launch and will come in several different color variants including the Orchid Grey Variant which has been featured on his twitter feed –

Though several leaks have surfaced online, the following are some of the compiled information that our readers should know about the upcoming Note 8 device. The phone has been rumored to have a large infinity display with a dual rear camera set up and 4 color variants. It will cost around 1,000 Euros in Europe which roughly approximates it to about INR 75,400 in the Indian currency. Tipster Evan Blass informed its followers on Twitter that those making pre-orders will be benefited as they will be receiving either a Samsung 360 camera or 256GB SD card with Wireless charger free of cost. Amazon India has also opened an email subscription, notifying the subscribers about the early release of Galaxy Note 8 device and about the upcoming live stream event.

I know that there's lot of money required to do RnD and marketing; but Rs.75K for a phone!

Sir, I believe this is just a rough estimate which has rumored all over the internet. Definitely, a 75k phone is still a big deal in India, but if I compare it with that of the Lamborghini smartphone which has just been announced for a price of nearly Rs 1.5 lakhs, Note 8 will be a far better option in comparison and can come with such a price tag. However, we will soon get to know the actual prices and offers as Amazon will soon open the pre-orders for Note 8 in India.

I'm waiting for Xiaomi to launch a phone with a Stylus and I'll buy it.
it seems to be really expensive for me as per the Indian price tag
