Samsung’s huge Galaxy Note 8 handset has just launched at long last, so how much will it cost in the UK and what are the best deals? Carphone Warehouse has already revealed pay monthly contract details for the most anticipated smartphone of 2017, including those with the best data.
We’ve just witnessed the launch of the new Note 8, Samsung’s follow-up to the sadly mass-recalled Note 7 which made major headlines last year. Now that the phone is finally official, Carphone Warehouse has revealed the monthly contract pricing and best deals for this mega-handset.
Is the Galaxy Note 8 worth it?
The Galaxy Note 8 was quite heavily leaked ahead of the official unveiling, with images of the mighty handset and many specs hitting the internet long before today. Most of those rumours were on the money too, as we discovered at the launch.
Of course you get a super-powered chipset, backed by 6GB of RAM, as well as Samsung’s first ever dual-lens mobile camera. This is one massive blower too, with a mighty 6.3-inch QHD+ display topping even the Galaxy S8 Plus.
You also get Samsung’s S Pen stylus, which can be used for creative and productive purposes.
Head to our in-depth Note 8 hands-on review for all you need to know.
Best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals
With this kind of brilliant tech on board, you’d be right for thinking that the Note 8 isn’t going to be cheap.
Carphone’s best Pay Monthly deal for Samsung’s phone is £49 per month with a £60 up-front cost, which gives you service on O2. That’ll net you 5GB of data to use each month, as well as (we’re assuming) unlimited texts and minutes.
Want more data than that? You can pay £56 a month with the same up-front cost and that data allowance rises to a mighty 20GB.
Vodafone fans can grab the Note 8 from £56 per month, with a £50 up-front cost. That’ll net you a massive 16GB of data.
Finally, you can get the Note 8 on EE from £59 per month, with a smaller £30 up-front cost.
Each of these networks of course offer their own unique benefits. For instance, O2 gives its customers free stuff every week, as well as priority ticket purchasing for O2 Arena gigs.

How much does the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 cost SIM-free in the UK?
Carphone has also revealed the SIM-free price of the Note 8. Apparently you can pick up Samsung’s mighty new handset for £869 here in Blighty, outside of contract. That’s on par with the Galaxy S8 Plus, and certainly a high price to pay for this brilliant blower.
