    Samsung could unveil the Galaxy Note 8 on August 26 at an event in New York

    Samsung was expected to announce the Galaxy Note 8 at IFA 2017 in Berlin, Germany. However, it is now being reported by the South Korean publication Naver that Samsung will unveil its next high-end phablet on August 26 at an event in New York. If we compare it to the announcement of the Galaxy Note 7 last year, which was unveiled on August 2, 2016, this is a delay of almost a month.

    According to the sources, Samsung had planned to launch the Galaxy Note 8 at IFA in September. However, its archrival Apple is likely to show off its next iPhone (either iPhone 7s or iPhone 8) in the same month, so Samsung decided to prepone its phone's announcement by a week. The iPhone 8 and the Galaxy Note 8 are expected to duke it out to be in the hands of consumers by the festive season later this year.

    The publication also reports that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, a slightly improved S Pen, dual cameras, Bixby, and a fingerprint reader that's located on the rear of the phone, similar to that of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. However, the fingerprint reader's position has reportedly been shifted to the middle of the device as it was hard to reach when it was beside the rear-facing camera.
