I’ve had my note 4 since when it was 1st released, I will be upgrading to the note 8. Dear samsung please don’t make this a 5.7 or 5.8 inch screen this has been done since the note 3 it’s time for a big leap, match the s8 plus in screen size or make it larger, that for me is the big deciding factor for me. Also keep the headphone jack, micro sd, & please release 5 to 6gb of ram for the US & CAN, don’t make the 6gb ram just an Asian exclusive that’s not right. Also please increase battery size if possible worst case scenario add atleast another 100 to 200 mah extra. & if possible bring back the ir blaster.

I think samsung is very fast,but with android versions it’s very slow.Samsung should be faster with android updates and slower with phone production

Honestly I’ll be waiting for the Samsung Note 9 or 10. The S8 seems to much like my s7 edge.

I`ll skip S8.It is S7 with little bigger display and one extra button:) The note 8 will be more or less bigger version of S8.It began to get bored!

Excited for the Note 8. They need to bring back the fingerprint sensor to the front underneath the glass (or at least place it in the middle of the phone) and make a 300gb version available on day one and also bring back the IR blaster. Is that too much to ask for?

300gb version is not necessary it’ll cost like hell

Can’t wait for the Note 8. S8 is a big disappointment for me.

Cool so it’ll be released on 7.1.1 then and updated to O within the first two 2 months

Just because they started development now doesn’t mean it’ll release on 7.1.1. If Android O is released on August like Nougat, and the Note 8 will be released on October, it’s quite possible it’ll release with Android O. If not, it will without a doubt be released with the last version of Nougat.
