    you can still order them though...this is message I got when I tried to add an unlocked one to my cart...

    "All of our pre-orders have been claimed, but we'll email you when yours is ready for shipping or pickup.
    Only available for shipping"

    That, or they didn't make enough. Samsung does not play the constrainment games like Nintendo or Apple. Feedback from two Samsung reps is demand for the 512GB is WAY over estimates. That said, both were vague as far as overall preorders for the 128 and 512.

    Could be Good News! 512GB demand is five times higher than expected! Bad News! Overall demand for both versions combined is less than expected.

    I've been saying this, but a few said I was off my rocker. I said that Samsung probably expected higher sales for the 128, so produced accordingly.

    Never doubt the allure of more storage and ram.

    Yikes. And I plan on being at a carrier store right when it opens on release day to snag a 512GB purple or blue.

    I would think it's because of the 8gb the higher demand. Really, 512 is overkill for most of us. the high price is what steered me to the 6gb as well. I don't need 512 gb ram. They should have made the 128gb 8gb also or kept the 6gb model same as last years Note 8 price and sell an 128gb and 8gb ram for $1000, a 6gb ram 64gb storage for $940.

    As of now I can still order the purple unlocked 512 GB from samsung direct and still get the 24th delivery date. Whereas if I select to order ocean blue it's delayed a bit. So it depends, some combinations (color/carrier) might have higher demand than others.

    Would not be surprised if they allocated < 10% of planning for the 512 version. Delays could be comically long and a glut of 128 versions. Writing seems on the wall. Not good for Samsung, since appears overall preorders might not be stellar and the one in higher relative demand apparently constrained out of the gate.

    Keyword being Relative, since obvious the overall demand would be higher for the 128. Point being the percent of overall demand mix. Could be 30% though ordering the 512.

    Most likely Samsung predicted that the 128GB model would be the best seller, and they underestimated the demand for the 512 model. I would still bet that the 128 model IS the better seller, BUT the 512 may be selling better than they expected. Don't worry they will make more, then you can slap down your 1200 simolinas!

    The solution would be 'loaner' 128s as placeholders until the 512GB model's production could be ramped-up. I saw, over the past several years, Note aficionados clamoring for more storage and I guess that the hue & cry fell mostly on deaf ears. This all began when Samsung emasculated the Note 5 in stripping that device of the micro SD card slot.

    I don't want a loaner, I'll just keep using my note 8 and wait for the 512 model if need be. Setting up the phone is a pain in the arse, don't need to do it twice with a loaner, specially when I have the note 8 to use.

    I ordered at 2:30am on preorder morning, so I'm guessing I'll be ok anyway, Verizon does go in order of when ordered.

    Agreed. Setting up a phone twice is too time consuming. My 9+ rocks, so okay if there's a delay.

    Hear, hear. The most anguishing fifteen minutes of life is setting up a new phone. As joy-robbing experiences go it's on par with walking six miles each way for water from the village well. Someday, I'll get indoor plumbing and that will be that.

    What sucks about this is Samsung is going to be like "See, we can charge $1200 for a phone and people will still buy it"

    Nah you can't judge by the initial orders from geeks. All the people who want these monster specs are going to pre order or buy in the first few weeks. The main thing for Samsung is how it does after couple of weeks when the crazy people have done buying

    If the demand for 512 GB is good from normal people even after few weeks of release then yeah they will be damn we can charge like Apple and be perfectly fine. They even said in one of their recent earnings they want to introduce more higher end SKU with higher storage so that average selling price increases. Personally, I'm happy Samsung is providing higher local storage option. Majority people are happy with sd card but I always wanted more local storage since not a big fan of SD card and hated Samsung phones mostly had 64 GB option before S9 with few exceptions in some years. Glad they changed that and offering higher storage options like Apple does right at launch.
