Samsung's Note 7 comes with a gift: A Gear Fit 2 or 256GB SD card

Samsung hopes its free gift offer will make its Note 7 a bundle of joy.

Editors' note: Updated on August 4, 2016, with link to Samsung's FAQ for further details.

Buy a phone, get a freebie. That's Samsung's come-hither for buyers of its new Galaxy Note 7 Android phone, which begins selling in the US in black, silver and Coral Blue. The Note 7 will be launching on August 19, with preorders beginning August 3. More details here. Here are the known US carrier prices:

  • AT&T: $880 (full retail)
  • T-Mobile: $850 (full retail)
  • Verizon: $864 (full retail)
  • Sprint: $849 (full retail)

Anyone who picks up the high-powered Android phone with its very own stylus will also have the choice of either a Gear Fit 2 fitness band or a microSD card with 256GB of storage space for your photos and videos. The deal runs from August 3 through August 28, "while supplies last," and you get $20 worth of "rewards" if you buy the phone with Samsung Pay (which means you have to already have a qualifying Samsung phone.)

We got an early hands-on look at the Note 7, which has extra software for its rounded edges, some new camera moves and the ability to unlock the phone using your eyes.

Samsung's FAQ has all the details.
