At 4 o'clock this afternoon, Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 to the world, even though there are already a billion leaks out there telling us pretty much everything we need to know. Well now there's another biggy, featuring the phone's full specs and UK pricing.
You can thank the Carphone Warehouse which reportedly slipped up and published the phone's product page several hours too early. It was taken down, but not before people (including The Inquirer) saw what the new phablet has to offer - including a hefty price tag. It's not going to be cheap, I'll tell you that, because the page listed the phone's SIM free price as £869.
Yeah you read that right. It's significantly more expensive than the S8 and S8+, which cost £689 and £779, respectively.
The page also revealed that contracts will start at £49 a month (with a £60 up-front payment), with 5GB of data bundled in.
