Galaxy Note 8 launch date has been confirmed by Samsung

There has been a lot of speculation about the Galaxy Note 8’s launch in recent weeks. Reports have suggested that the handset will be launched earlier than previously expected. This means that Samsung won’t be unveiling it at the IFA 2017 convention in September.

Samsung’s mobile boss recently confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to be launched towards the end of August. The company has now officially confirmed the Galaxy Note 8 launch date by sending out invites to the press.

It was reported that Samsung would conduct a separate event for the Galaxy Note 8 in New York City. That’s precisely what it’s going to do. The event will take place on August 23, where the Note 8 will go official.

This is going to be a really important moment for Samsung as it essentially marks the rebirth of the Galaxy Note lineup following the disaster that was the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung was quick to confirm last year that the Note lineup won’t be discontinued, so it’s certainly not going to let the Galaxy Note 7 get in the way.

As far as the Galaxy Note 8 is concerned, it’s expected to feature a 6.3-inch Infinity Display with an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 processor possibly coupled with 6GB of RAM. It may also be the first flagship smartphone from Samsung to feature a dual camera.

It remains to be seen, though, how long the wait is going to be from the moment the Galaxy Note 8 is announced on August 23 and when it finally starts shipping to customers.

To be honest, I always use Samsung phone because samsung phone used to be the most innovative phones in the market. Unfortunately I can’t see any innovation now. They place the finger print scanner into the back of the phone in order to get a huge display in the front. The result is a bueutiful display and a really # place of the fingerprint scanner. Now you can’t unlock your phone when it’s on the desk, you have to hold it. And yes… I know what you think… “It’s not a big deal” BUT please try to think over. It’s… Read more »

Hey Martin here, I strongly disagree with the Fingerprint scanner. I ‘m using the S8 for a few months now. And let me tell you this. You’ll get used to it and you’ll notice that it isn’t that bad at all. Samsung users are the only ones complaining of the Fingerprint on the back. LG, Pixel or even Huawei users do not complain about this. Innovations in batteries are not that necessary as you might think. Check all the battery stats. They all are great and even better than last years irritations. For that beautiful screen on the front, sacrifices… Read more »

What are you talking about. EVERYONE knows that they tried to inbed the finger print scanner under the display and they ran out of time to perfect it! And yes, it being at the back maybe isn’t the best but it works and it’s fast. And I have to say. Using any other phone, I’m too used to swiping down on the back fingerprint scanner to show notifications! Lol I forget not every phone has that feature. If you want to check your phone without holding it in front of your face you can. There is a lockscreen with notifications… Read more »
