Samsung Galaxy Note 8 hands-on video

One week before the Galaxy Note 8’s U.S. launch, Samsung has shed some light on the new flagship’s pre-order numbers.

Samsung says that more people have pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 8 than other Note phones during the same time period. If you’re not one of those people that’ve already bought a Note 8, Samsung says that you can pre-order one right now and get free expedited shipping with delivery on or before September 14th.

If you pre-order Samsung’s new Gear VR with Controller, the company says that you may receive your order early, too.

The Galaxy Note 8 is Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, packing specs like a 6.3-inch 2960x1440 Infinity Display, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with OIS (one with 2x optical zoom), 6GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 835 processor. The Note 8 comes equipped with 64GB of built-in storage, but there’s also a microSD slot in case you need more storage. Finally, there’s a 3,300mAh battery powering this package, as well as a USB-C port and wireless charging for when it’s time to recharge that battery.
