Nevertheless, the much better specifications will just further contribute to the already high sales price which is expected for the Galaxy Note 8. With its premium specifications and functions, the Galaxy Note 8 price is likely to reach $1,000 or more, therefore the Galaxy Note 8 EE might require some deep pockets with the cost possibly going above $1200.
