The hardware for the three NZ telcos will be identical, you can flash firmware relating to your specific carrier onto your phone using ODIN. OTA updates then continue accordingly. If the Note 8 firmware follows the lead of the s8/s8+ there could be an unbranded CSC for nz called xnz. You can easily disable apps like the spark/myvoda/2deg from within settings.

Just received:



Following unprecedented pre-order demand, Samsung NZ has announced that all pre-order customers purchasing the Galaxy Note8 will receive early shipment on their device. Pre-order shipments of the Galaxy Note8 will ship from Wednesday 20th of September, ensuring Note fans will receive their devices ahead of the pack.


“Although a high level of hype and anticipation for the Galaxy Note8 was expected, we have been overwhelmed with the success this product is attracting before it has even landed in store. In the first five days, we have seen our pre-orders grow almost four times that of the previous Note, which is testament to the market is responding to our latest mobile innovation,” said Todd Selwyn, Head of IM Product for Samsung NZ.


Equipped with a bigger Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand, the signature S Pen and a dual lens camera - the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is the next level Note for people who want to do bigger things.


“New Zealanders tend to be early adopters of technology, which is why a premium, high spec and powerful device like the Note8 can thrive in this market. It’s an exciting moment for us to be able to deliver the best and most highly anticipated Galaxy Note we’ve ever created to the Kiwis who’ve waited patiently to upgrade,” Selwyn continued.


Samsung pre-order customers will also receive a bonus 256GB SD memory card, to take full advantage of the Note8’s expandable memory.




Can we get more info on this? Was this an email sent out to all Samsung pre order customers or?

tripp: I just picked up a new gear fit2 pro today ready for the note8

Have to put a liquid glass spray on it today (also have the spray on the s8 and looks and feels great)

 

 

 

Tripp, what's your thoughts on the Gear Fit2 Pro?

 

I have the Gear Fit2, not sure that it's worthwhile upgrading to be honest. But it sure looks good.

 

 

 

On another note, 7 more days to go for the Note 8!

I would not be happy with that!! Im picking mine up in store on Friday morning (status hasn't changed) and if they don't have it for me I will be asking for a refund and buying it else where.

I bought a LED view cover this morning for it.

When did you pre order yours?

Ordered on the 7th Sept, after deciding where to order from and it looked like they offered the best bonuses.

 

 

 

Did you purchase from Harvey Norman as well?

I ordered on Sept 6th. My order status is identical MissyMoo. It's been that way a while too.

I've not had any email or update at all. I selected to collect from my local store. I didn't want the delay of delivery time. They best have it this Friday! I want that dam phone! 😁😂

Guys, can we be a little intelligent when quoting? There is no need to quote a picture the size of the Wellington region, or the 900 replies prior. Just quote what is essential for the person to understand what is being discussed.
