The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launch date has been confirmed to be August 23, and and it’s expected to go on sale in the US and other first-round markets in early September.
The event will be held at the Park Avenue Armoury in New York City, with proceedings expected to begin at 11am EST (4pm BST). This means Samsung probably won’t be announcing the new Galaxy Note phone at Berlin’s IFA tradeshow, as was previously expected.
The phone is rumored to feature a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, more RAM than the Galaxy S8, and a larger battery . It’s highly likely that the Galaxy Note 8 will retain the same processors used in the Galaxy S8. That means we’ll either get Samsung’s custom-built Exynos 8995 chipset, or Qualcomm’s similarly powerful Snapdragon 835 chip. Expected Software will be Android 7.0 Nougat, with Samsung’s Bixby digital assistant
Note 7 had a scanner and an S-Pen stylus to boot, so we’d expect much the same from the Galaxy Note 8. Other features like NFC , fingerprint scanner and waterproofing expected too.
The bad news is the price – Samsung is probably going to charge a significant amount of cash for the Galaxy Note 8.
Rumour has it that, much like the iPhone 8, the Galaxy Note 8 could be Samsung’s first smartphone to break the $1,000 (around £920) barrier.
