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.

I am really not excited about the Note 8. I was one of the Note 7 customers who Samsung treated with utter contempt in the UK. Their attitude towards their customers is absolutely disgraceful – and i was talking to people in the presidents office as well – not some operator in a call centre. To say they are arrogant about their market position is an under statement. I swapped to the iPhone 7+ as it was the best alternative available at the time and now have swapped again to the S8+ but NOT because it is a Samsung –… Read more »

This year it will be hard to beat the iphone 8, less bezel than the Note 8, fingerscanner under display, 3D face scanner.
Both have wireless charging and IP68 water rating.
The Note 8 has iris scanner, S-Pen and we will see who has the better dual camera features but so far the iphone 8 seems to offer more intriguing features.

iPhone 8 is being released in December with a minimum price tag of $1000.
Samsung displays cannot be beaten which is why I can’t move to any other OEM lol. And the display is the most important thing on a phone, because it is what you are looking at for hours of the day. iPhone 8 is shaping up to be the best iPhone yet, but with all its features (except the under display fingerprint scanner) it really is late in the game of features.

Either way I’m buying definitely but it needs to be 128gb version out of the box no 64gb.

My S8plus is already rocking 64gb with 256gb Samsung Evo plus sdcard.

I need my Note8 to unlocked, 128gb version out of the box, and 4k 6.3 or 6.4 inch infinity display with 3800mAh battery then I’ll shell out the 1000 gladly.
