The most expensive Galaxy Note 8 could cost way more than $1,000

Galaxy Note 8 Price

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 8 in less than two months, which means we’ll be bombarded by more leaks and rumors in the coming weeks. The phone will be very similar to the Galaxy S8+, so we shouldn’t expect any surprises in terms of design or specs. But the Galaxy Note 8 will have a few exclusive features, including an S Pen stylus and an Isocell Dual camera on the back. And if this new rumor pans out, the new Note will also feature more built-in memory than the Galaxy S8.

You’ll want to look at these new pictures of that gorgeous iPhone 8 design

iPhone 8 design leaked pictures vs iPhone 7

Earlier this week, notorious iPhone leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer showed off an iPhone 8 CAD mockup in an extensive video. It's one of the first opportunities we've had to examine the next iPhone's likely physical design in detail, and it didn't disappoint.

Put simply, this year's iPhone is going to be a looker. Regardless of what it's called, the Next iPhone is going to do what needs to be done in terms of physical design. It looks like a fitting tribute to everything that's come before: the glass front and back of the iPhone 4 combined with the rounded metal chassis of the iPhone 6 design, wrapped up in the new Jet Black finish from the iPhone 7.

Best Buy has a great deal on the hottest Switch game of 2017 (but Amazon’s is still better)

Super Mario Odyssey Trailer 2

If you don't already have a Nintendo Switch, you'd better do something as quickly as you can. Why? Because as we get closer to the holidays, Switch inventory is going to be even more difficult to come by. That might seem hard to believe since the Switch is already so scarce, but it's expected to be one of the hottest holiday gifts of the year. Amazon actually has the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con in stock with Prime shipping right now if you're willing to pay a premium.

Once you have your Switch in hand, it's time to prepare for the hottest upcoming Switch game of 2017. That's right, we're talking about Super Mario Odyssey. You'll definitely want to pre-order it if you want a copy at launch, and we've got two solid deals for you to choose from.

Pre-order a Super Mario Odyssey digital download from Best Buy, and you'll get a $10 gift card. The offer applies to physical cartridges as well, but you definitely shouldn't go that route. Why? Because Prime subscribers will save even more money if they pre-order it from Amazon, where the retailer is offering its customary 20% discount.

Now, enjoy the latest Super Mario Odyssey trailer while you wait:
