Samsung has officially confirmed the launch of its new flagship, the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23. This year, the launch is scheduled a bit in advance as compared to previous year’s launches. The company has revealed a teaser image which just says, “Do Bigger Things” and mentions the date. Although they haven’t mentioned the name, the tagline is a likely indication of the Galaxy Note 8.
As we had reported earlier, there are numerous benefits of launching the phablet flagship earlier than usual. Some of them being:
a.) Samsung can start supplying the phone globally in September itself.
b.) It can capitalize on the sales in case Apple delays the iPhone launch.
The teaser image also reveals that the phone will come with a similar infinity display like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. We can also spot the S Pen stylus which was anyway expected for a Note variant. The poster is quite minimal and doesn’t reveals much.
We usually get to see a new Note phone by Samsung every year after Apple launches its iPhone. Mostly, this happens at the IFA trade show in Berlin. This year seems to be an exception.
A few concepts of the Note 8 were leaked some days back along with its likely specifications. It was also being said that the new Note might be the most expensive Samsung phone yet. The phone might have a dual camera setup, Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM and a superb 6.3-inch AMOLED display. On the battery front, it might pack in a 3300mAh capacity battery.
Samsung has a lot of responsibility with this Note 8 launch. Although last year’s Note 7 was a superb smartphone, it proved to be Samsung’s worst nightmare owing to exploding batteries. Hope the Galaxy Note 8 is impressive on all the fronts, including the battery.
