It looks like you might be able to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in your hands before the end of August, if you’re in Europe.
Leaker Roland Quandt received word from a European carrier operator that pre-orders will go until August 23rd, and that Samsung will release the upcoming Note phone on August 24th.
If this is true for Europe, it’s possible that Samsung will follow the same release schedule in North America as well.
Looking back at last year, the Note 8 was unveiled on August 23rd and then was released to the public on September 15th. While last year there was a three-week break between launch and release date, a two week break window is possible.
Samsung's (european) carrier partners are going to be taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note9 until August 23. Pre-order customers will receive device on August 24. (General availability). I know this might have been heard before, but I have confirmation from a european operator.
