It has been rumoured for quite some time, but it’s now official: the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will indeed be unveiled on 23 August. Looking back at the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7‘s launch last year – which happened in early August – the Note 8 is actually being introduced slightly later.
Previously, the Galaxy Note 8 has been confirmed by Samsung itself that the phablet will be launched sometime in August. Now, the Korean company has sent out invites to an Unpacked event on 23 August. Based on the “do bigger things” written on the event – and the stylus, of course – there’s a very good chance is the Note 8’s launch event.
The Unpacked invitation also gives us a glimpse at the Galaxy Note 8’s design. Much like the Samsung Galaxy S8 devices, the Note 8 will very likely feature an Infinity Display. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise: it has been rumoured many times in the past, after all.
Aside from the display, the Galaxy Note 8 is also believed to be packing very similar hardware as the Galaxy S8 devices. These include an Exynos 8895 chipset paired with 4GB RAM, an IP68 rating, as well as a rear fingerprint sensor right beside the camera lens – the Note 8 will supposedly be sporting a dual-camera system too.
Although we only have leaks and rumours to go by, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is shaping up to be Samsung’s most interesting Note device yet. The Note 8 will be officially unveiled on 23 August next month.
