    I just received my new unlocked Note 8 today from Samsung. But the actual black box of the phone does not have a seal or a plastic wrap on it. Shouldn't there be a seal or a plastic wrap like any new electronic product you buy? Did anyone receive their phone the same way?

    I ordered mine thru Verizon and I got it on Sept 5th. And if I remember correctly mine didn't have the seal or plastic. Last year my note7 didn't have plastic but had the seal

    Mine came from Verizon without any type of wrap around the box. The phone on the other hand was wrapped. Matter of fact, my wife's S8+ was the same way. I can't remember any of the last several phones I've gotten being wrapped with plastic around the box.

    I have watched some unboxing videos and they all had a wrap and a security seal. But looks like the US versions do not come with a security seal. Thanks everyone for the input!

    Thats exactly what happened with me, and I was sitting on my bed. Something i always do while unboxing an expensive gadget.

    I have the AT&T version, no plastic seal on my Note 8. I can also say that my S7E and S8+ did not have any plastic wrap either.

    Cheers,

    My sister's Note 8 (AT&T) didn't have any seals or plastic wrapping. I don't think Samsung ever did wraps. That's more of an Apple thing.

    no tabs to cut through here, you slide the outer box off and then just pull the tab on the side where the little arrow is and the box folds open. I thought it was a very nice design.

    the box is gorgeous. having it pop open and my phone fall out was not.

    My AT&T Note 8 ordered from Best Buy didn't have any plastic seal on the box; however, the phone did have a plastic wrap.

    I've had a lot of phones over the years and can't remember ever having one with a plastic seal.

    4 years at Verizon and only iphones and ipads had the shrink wrap on them, everything else was just a box.

    Seems strange they aren't sealing them. A lot of other electronic devices like this come sealed.
