Posted March 05, 2018 11:03:48Samsung’s Galaxy Note series is going through a few major changes this year, with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge hitting shelves this week.
But what you might not know is that Samsung isn’t taking the Note 7’s battery out of production and instead, is actually selling it off at a discount.
The company said in a press release on March 4 that the S7 Edge will be the first Note 7 phone to be made available at a price of just $200 and offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
That means the phone will be on sale for as low as $199 when it goes on sale on March 15, but the price will be reduced as the phone becomes available for sale later in the month.
There’s no official word on the exact price, but we’ve heard it’s likely around $300.
As you can see, Samsung’s price cut is pretty bold, especially when considering the Galaxy Note7 is only slightly more expensive than the Galaxy Nexus.
The S7 is currently selling for around $750 on Verizon.
The Note 7 will also be available in a special edition called the S8, which features the Note7 logo in gold and features a black plastic casing, with a white plastic back.
The Note7 S8 is also limited to 100 pieces, but Samsung is offering a 10-piece version, which costs $1,299.
This means if you purchase a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, you’ll only be able to get a phone for $300 when it becomes available on March 16, 2019.
This is pretty impressive.
It shows Samsung is serious about making the Note series affordable, even if it means selling some of the cheaper phones.
The Galaxy Note 5S, S6 Edge+ and S6 and S5 are already on sale at full price, so it’s probably worth keeping an eye on if Samsung’s going to be taking the Galaxy note out of its factory.
We’ve also heard rumors that Samsung is testing a larger battery for the Note line.
That would mean Samsung would be making more phones in the Note family than it did in the past.
