Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to be unveiled on 23 August

Samsung recently confirmed that it would be unveiling the Galaxy Note 8 flagship at an event in NY on August 23rd.

Samsung has set a date for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, looking to right the wrongs of the Note 7 and take us forward into a bigger S Pen powered world.

What does that hint at?

To recap, the Galaxy Note 8 is rumoured to sport a 6.3in Super AMOLED Infinity Display (with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio) with curved edges, variably either Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor OR Samsung's own Exynos 8895 (as usual this will be market dependent), and 6GB of RAM. It also showed a blue stylus, a key feature of Samsung's Note line. The S pen may come with an embedded speaker. In some markets such as the USA, the Galaxy Note 8 will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC.

Ahead of launch, a lot has already been leaked about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.

You can watch watch the Galaxy Note 8 launch live, with Samsung confirming that it will be hosting live video.

Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 and Galaxy J7 2017 are the official successors to the Galaxy A3 2016 and Galaxy J7 2016. AAPL is expected to announce the iPhone 8 in early September.

Latin American clients favour the Midnight Black version of the S8 smartphones, Samsung said, followed by Orchid Grey and Arctic Silver, the company said. However, now the company is looking to win back its customers with Galaxy Note 8.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could well be the most expensive smartphone ever (not including limited edition, solid gold devices), coming in with a price tag of around $1000 (£760) according to a new source. The device will launch only in the Chinse market. It was the company's first new smartphone following the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 with its exploding battery. This doesn't came as a surprise the smartphone will compete with the devices in the high-end segment, which includes the yet-to-be launched Apple iPhone 8, and LG V30.
