Samsung could still launch the Galaxy Note 8 at IFA

Contrary to recent reports, there’s a chance that Samsung will still launch the Galaxy Note 8 at IFA in September. We’ve reached out to our internal sources and have received word that Samsung is planning to release its successor to the Galaxy Note 7 at the conference, though it may share some details sooner.

After all, it’s unlikely that the Gear S4 will be unveiled at IFA seeing as development of a Tizen 3.0 wearable has only just started, and Samsung’s been showcasing products at the venue for as long as we can remember — so it will need to have something special to show off, like the Galaxy Note 8.

Purported specifications include an edge-to-edge Infinity Display, an in-house Exynos series (8895) processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and stereo speakers tuned by AKG. The handset is also rumored to sport a textured Bixby button (yes, it’ll come with Bixby) to prevent people from mistaking it for the volume-down key.

We can’t wait to see what Samsung’s working on. Seeing as it has a lot of customers to win over as a result of the disappointing Galaxy Note 7 debacle, we’re expecting some pretty big things, though we already know that one of them — an in-display fingerprint reader — won’t be included.

I really think a lot of people will wait till the fingerprint scanner is in a more practical place. Maybe Samsung should have done the same

It’s not a big deal the the position of fingerprint sensor. It’s like you buy a Ferrari and you don’t like it because of the key design.

Not sure the Ferrari is a good example, but if the tech isn’t ready… its NOT ready! nothing anyone can do about that.

If you would have to put the keys in the back of your Ferrari in order to start the engine I don’t think You would not bother. For that price level people are expecting a perfectly designed device, without that kind of compromises.

What compromise?! You want a technology that is not ready! Its like asking for the phone do be foldable! the tech is there but its not ready yet. apple are struggling and rumours have that launch is being pushed back as far as December. You need some proper perspective

Not sure its quite the same. It’s more like putting in the key behind the steering wheel vs hitting the start button
