There have been several reports doing rounds regarding the expected launch date of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but none of them have put forward a specific date that this would be happening.
But according to a new report, the Galaxy Note 8 will be here on August 26. This is not a confirmed report from Samsung itself, rather, it’s just another of those many leaks that we’ve already seen regarding the Note 8. Still, this new development adds more weight to previous reports that had suggested the phablet will be unveiled in late August and start selling in early September.
Apparently, the South Korean tech giant will hold an event in New York City on the said date, during which the Galaxy Note 8 will be confirmed. While this report doesn’t shed any light on specs and features to expect, previous rumors and leaks have already given us a clue of what to look forward to.
If the rumors are to be believed, expect to see a device that shares a bunch of things with the already released Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. For starters, the design will be the same, featuring a curved Super AMOLED display panel on the front with close to no bezels, however, we’ve heard reports that the Galaxy Note 8 could be among the first – if not the first – to come with a new Snapdragon 836 processor running the show.
This processor has not been unveiled, but it’s possible this could be the case since Qualcomm did the same with the Snapdragon 820 by releasing a revised Snapdragon 821, which powers a number of devices, including several released in 2017.
The Galaxy Note 8 is also expected to be the first Sammy flagship to boast a dual-lens camera, with talk of a 12MP+13MP setup all over. The fingerprint scanner will remain on the back, but it’ll find a better position just below the two sensors. The S Pen will be there, IP68 dust and water resistance as well as the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, among other goodies.
