Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tipped to launch mid-August
Posted by ishubhamsingh
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be here in just two months time, according to South Korean news website The Bell. Citing Samsung Electronics, The Bell states that the new flagship phablet could launch in mid-August, the same period that the Galaxy Note 7 was released in last year (August 19).
The Galaxy Note phones have traditionally been unveiled at the IFA conference in Berlin, which takes place in September, until last year’s Note 7 bucked the trend.
It was anticipated that Samsung would take extra time in releasing the upcoming Note 8, i.e. beyond the typical 12 month production cycle, to ensure the launch went off without a hitch. Last year’s Galaxy Note 7 was recalled twice before being cancelled following battery problems, and it was speculated that Samsung delayed the Galaxy S8 release earlier this year for quality assurance purposes.
However, The Bell claims that Samsung has decided to “accelerate the launch of the Galaxy Note 8,” to get a head-start on the upcoming 10th anniversary Apple iPhone 8 range. If it’s true, let’s hope that decision doesn’t blow up in Samsung’s face.
The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come with a 6.3-to-6.4-inch curved display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor, and a dual-lens, 13 MP, rear-facing camera with AF. An in-display fingerprint scanner has been ruled out, but the display should house an impressive screen-to-body ratio, like the S8 and S8 Plus.
