Samsung launches Galaxy Note 7: All you need to know
At the moment, the device is available only to pre-order or to try out at Carphone Warehouse' retail stores. If you pre-order one, you will get a new Gear VR headset for free and will be able to choose from a range of tariff options. However, if you want to buy the device straight from the store after trying it out, it will be available for purchase at stores from September 2nd.
Among the tariff options on offer is one from Vodafone which comes with 6GB of 4G data and all you can eat minutes and texts. The plan costs £42 a month along with an upfront cost of £59. You can also pay £699 to pre-order the device SIM free.
If you are pre-ordering the Galaxy Note 7 from Carphone Warehouse, the retailer will offer you its 'Price Promise' which means that if you find a better offering from any other high street retailer, Carphone Warehouse will match that offer and will also pay your first month's line rental.
