Venerable leaks reporter Evan Blass has affirmed claims that the Galaxy Note 8 can be pre-ordered the day after Samsung’s August 23 launch event in New York.

Depend on your geography or even carrier, Blass also notes that pre-order customers will get plenty of incentives — some by default, others by choice.

The DeX dock allows users to run the Galaxy Note 8 (as well as S8-generation devices) on a dedicated monitor with a keyboard and mouse. It was offered as a pre-order gift to S8+ buyers in Korea, though many units were passed on to the secondhand market. Who knows what if Europeans will do the same with their units or would rather receive a 256GB microSD card and wireless charger or 360-degree camera.

Many phone manufacturers will often pair their products with early order perks, but Samsung has been piling on ammunition — it has to make up for last year’s financially disastrous Note 7 recall and, potentially, a rumored severely expensive price tag.
