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… Read more »

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.

No worries, Note 8 will be the same phone with an SPen only. Or maybe they remove more features, to make it complete. It might get round edges up and down … maybe even make it spherical.
And of course the common sense price hike of 200e.

You don’t know that. Note series must be different than S range. S7 and Note 7 were completely different.

S7 and Note7 were completely different? Almost everyone said Note7 was just a bigger S7 Edge with a pen, with an iris scanner.

While we wanted more, it did have a few things the S7 didn’t have:
Goriila Glass 5
USB 3.1 Type C
Iris Scanner
HDR10
Grace UX

The Note 8 has a dual camera and S-Pen, maybe 4k display, maybe fingerscanner under the frontdisplay. The last two points could also come first with the S9 who knows.

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

have you? i don’t think you did

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.
