    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.
