Last month a report said that Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Note 8 will be unveiled at Galaxy Note Unpacked 2017 event in New York City in August, now a new report from Korean news outlet The Bell says that the phone will be announced on August 23rd, ahead of IFA in September.
According to earlier rumors, the phone will have a 6.4-inch OLED display with the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio and QHD+ (1440 x 2960) resolution of the S8 series, dual rear cameras with 12 MP wide-angle lens supporting dual photodiodes, along with a 13 MP telephoto lens, OIS on both.
It is rumored to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 chipset, varying by region and 6GB of RAM. It is not clear if the phone will come with under-glass fingerprint sensor, as rumors indicate it will be highly unlikely, but it will be in a position that is easier to reach compared to the S8 series. It is said to come with improved S Pen and Bixby voice assistant.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is said to come in Black, Blue and Gold colors, is rumored to go on sale globally for about 999 Euros (US$ 1118 / 72120 approx.) in early September.
