If a tweet from tech journalist and tipster extraordinaire, Mr. Evan Blass, is anything to go by, T-Mobile may be planning to offer a BOGO (Buy One Get One) deal on Samsung’s upcoming phablet, the Galaxy Note 7. In a cryptic message posted on Twitter last night, Mr. Blass, a.k.a. @evleaks, seemed to suggest that such a deal may be on the cards for T-Mobile subscribers looking to get their hands on Samsung’s next-generation flagship phablet. He did not, however, clarify whether subscribers would have to add a second line to their account to be able to take advantage of the offer, but it could very well be the case if previous BOGO deals from T-Mobile are anything to go by.
As for the tweet itself, it was a rather short one: “TMO PROMO: GN7 BOGO”. While most of the abbreviations are pretty much self-explanatory, most online commentators and large sections of the tech media seem to be of the opinion that the ‘GN7’ in all probability stands for the Galaxy Note 7. Meanwhile, Samsung is expected to unveil the device on August 2, which should give it a reasonable head start over the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which are expected to be unveiled in September by Apple. However, even as carriers around the country are scrambling to offer Samsung’s next-generation flagship phablet on their respective networks, T-Mobile’s BOGO deal will certainly make it easier for customers to own the device which is expected to come with a price-tag that’s steeper than any previous Galaxy Note handset.
It is important to remember though that T-Mobile is yet to divulge anything officially about its plans to offer any such deal on the Galaxy Note 7. The carrier, however, is known to run such BOGO deals from time to time, and it was only back in May this year that it ran a similar promo on all Samsung handsets, including the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. As part of that deal, customers buying any Samsung smartphone on an EIP (Equipment Installment Plan) were eligible to get another Samsung handset of equal or lesser value for free, provided, they added a second line on their account.
