Beyond the Unpacked event in New York on August 2, we haven’t quite sussed out the dates for how sales for the Galaxy Note 7 will be handled. The best guess we have so far is that pre-orders will be open immediately after the launch. Beyond that, no one has a clue.
Samsung is preparing Taiwan for a big Note 7-related happening on August 5 with a video teaser hinting at the device’s water resistance.
Of course, when we’re talking about a different territory, it’s probable that we’re talking about a different timeline, so we can’t confirm that global sales will start on the 5th. Perhaps Samsung will have an Unpacked event for local press and maybe pre-orders will go up then? Who knows?
Whatever the case, we’re all within the week of revelation.
