Samsung already told everyone that the Galaxy Note 7 is the next hot Note phablet and that it’ll launch it on August 2nd in a special Unpacked event in New York – of course, we knew all that from all the leaks we saw in the past few months.

We also know pretty much everything there is to know about the phone’s specs and we have plenty of pictures showing its final design, including purported press renders. Some reports also even offered potential pricing details and release dates for the handset, and a new rumor claims you’ll be able to order the Galaxy Note 7 a lot sooner than you think.

According to Dutch website GalaxyClub, Galaxy Note 7 preorders will start on August 2nd in the Netherlands, as soon as Samsung unveiling event is over.

Assuming the site’s reliable source has accurate information, it’s likely that many other buyers will be able to preorder the handset, in major European markets but also the US. However, that’s just speculation at this point.

What’s clear is that Samsung wants to have plenty of time to sell the phone ahead of the iPhone 7’s arrival. Also of note – pun intended – is that the Galaxy S7 preorders kicked off a day after Samsung’s Barcelona event at MWC 2016. The phone should be available for preorder from Samsung’s online shop, but carriers will likely start their preorders once Samsung starts selling it.

Other sources said the new Note phablet would be Samsung’s most expensive new smartphone. Previous reports claimed the phone will be available for in-store purchases by mid-August, which still gives Samsung plenty of time to bank on the Galaxy Note 7’s popularity before the iPhone 7 Plus launches.
