The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could launch a soon as August
It seems Samsung Galaxy Note 8 fans haven’t got too long to wait before they get a glimpse of this latest flagship.
This new device is expected to include a swathe of improvements over its predecessor including a new curved AMOLED Infinity display and dual-lens camera which should help boost its photography credentials.
Other rumours suggest a super-fast Snapdragon 835 processor will supply the brains and there could be a refreshed S Pen tucked inside.
This new stylus should make scribbling on the screen more precise with it thought to vibrate as it touches the giant display.
So when will this epic new phone be revealed?
A new rumour from South Korea is reporting that the Note 8 will be unveiled at a major Unpacked event on August 23.
Although there’s no confirmation of this launch date from Samsung, it would make sense as it falls just before the IFA technology show in Berlin.
Thousands of gadget fans attend the yearly IFA event and the Note 8 would certainly mean Samsung grabs all of the headlines.
By launching the Note 8 in August also gives the device some breathing space before Apple unleashes its new iPhone.
It’s likely that the iPhone 8 will be shown to world in September although, again, there’s no confirmation of an official launch date.
A leaked picture of how the Note 8 might look has appeared on Twitter
After the exploding Note 7 debacle, Samsung will be wanting to make sure the Note 8 grabs the attention of consumers for all of the right reasons and it certainly appears to have all the hallmarks of an award-winning phone.
However, all of this technology could come at a price as the Note 8 looks set to break the $1,000 barrier.
If that price becomes a reality it will make this new phablet one of the most expensive smartphones ever.
Samsung will no doubt reveal full pricing and availability at its launch event.
