Samsung just unveiled one of the most hotly anticipated new smartphones of 2016. The Galaxy Note 7 features a gorgeous refined design along with cutting-edge specs that include a stunning 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 2K resolution, a fast quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, 64GB of storage plus microSDXC support up to 2TB, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and an iris scanner that adds yet another security option on top of fingerprint authentication and all the other security options in Android.

The hot new flagship phablet isn’t supposed to go on sale until August 19th following preorder availability that began on Wednesday, but apparently a store in Dubai didn’t get the memo.

YouTube user “Vic The Chick” (via SamMobile) was at a mall in Dubai when he discovered a store there that is already selling Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 7. He picked one up for AED 2,999 (which is about $815), ran into a nearby book store, and immediately filmed an unboxing video.

The brief 3-minute video goes through all of the contents of the new Note 7’s box. While you won’t be able to get your hands on one yourself until August 19th at the earliest — unless you live in Dubai, apparently — this will give you a taste of things to come once the phone finally hits store shelves.

Here’s the full unboxing video:
