We confirmed earlier that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to be sold in India from September. According to new reports, the device is expected to go up for pre-orders from September 11, while the device will be released from September 25 onwards. That’s slightly delayed from the dates Samsung chose for launching the Note 7 in India last year.

Nevertheless, the Note 8 goes on sale in global markets from September 15 onwards, so India isn’t far behind. The device has 6GB of RAM and comes with 64GB storage onboard, with options for 128GB and 256GB versions also. The Galaxy Note 8 sports the Snapdragon 835 chipset, and a 3300 mAh battery, along with dual-12MP cameras on the back. The Note 8 is Samsung’s first dual-camera smartphone.

The device is expected to be priced at around Rs. 70,000 in India. Samsung recently dropped the price of its 128GB Galaxy S8 Plus, presumably to make room for the Note 8. The Galaxy S8 Plus used to cost around the Rs. 70,000 price mark.

The Note 8 starts at $929 in the US, for the unlocked handsets. That amounts to about Rs. 60,000, meaning export duties and other expenses involved in selling in India could indeed inflate priced. That would also put the Galaxy Note 8 amongst Samsung’s most expensive smartphones ever.
