Samsung's Big-Screen Galaxy Note 8 Finally Here

24 August, 2017, 01:00 | Author: Darrell Baldwin

Artwork Samsung used to announce the event hints that the Note 8 will be similar in design to Galaxy S8. PCMag's Ajay Kumar and Jim Fisher will be there for all the details, but you can also follow along via the live stream (embedded below).

The device is expected to be launched online on August 23 at 8:30 p.m.

In the past, the company released a teaser video, wherein it states that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to "do bigger things" along with the hashtag, #DoWhatYouCant. That's one of the biggest devices on the market and the biggest of all the Note devices before it.

If you're preordering the Note 8 itself, Samsung has some bundled accessories to sweeten the deal there, too. Lastly, you can also watch on Samsung's official Facebook pages. However, there are a few new additions on the software side for DeX that arrive with the Note 8. The S- Pen will also be available in 4 color variants just like its parent Note 8.

After all, the last thing the company - or Note fans for that matter - want is a repeat of last year's disastrous recall. The new image shows the phablet sporting the same design as it was seen in earlier leaked renders.

The S Pen stylus is actually a difference maker. What distinguishes the Note 8 from the other two flagships, aside from the S Pen and size is dual-cameras on the rear.

Thankfully, Samsung hasn't killed the Note series and it has just launched a successor to the Note 7. Tipster Evan Blass informed its followers on Twitter that those making pre-orders will be benefited as they will be receiving either a Samsung 360 camera or 256GB SD card with Wireless charger free of cost. Bixby, unsurprisingly, is included and can be accessed via the smartphone's dedicated Bixby button. On the camera front, the rear camera is said to include two sensors, one will be of 12-megapixel while the other one will be of 8-megapixel. The second sensor contains a telephoto lens and an f/2.4 aperture with 10x digital zoom.

Sweating in a hot NY hotel restaurant undergoing renovation, he tells Australian journalists the phone is "critically important" to Samsung's future. Chances are that only the USA variant of the phone will come with Snapdragon 835 chip. The Note 8 does get a slight edge over the S8/S8+ as it comes with 6GB of RAM, coupled with 64GB/128GB/256GB of internal storage, along with a microSD expansion slot. That's about the specs that are expected to back the Note 8.

Seventy-six percent of current Note owners, according to a Samsung survey, are ready to upgrade to the Note 8 as soon as it comes out. As for price Samsung has said that the handset will retail for around R18 499 at launch.
