Samsung Galaxy Note8 announcement scheduled for August 23

Samsung Galaxy Note8 Unpacked August 23 invite

After rumors, Samsung has finally sent out invites for the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 23 where it is expected to unveil the flagship Galaxy Note8 smartphone. Samsung says that it will be the ultimate multitasking device for those who want to do bigger things with their phone.

It also said that it is specifically designed for people who move through barriers to do more of what matters to them. The invite shows S Pen stylus and hints at slim bezels.

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 Galaxy Note8 is said to come in Black, Blue and Gold colors and is rumored to go on sale globally for about 999 Euros (US$ 1118 / 72120 approx.) in early September.

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event on August 23, 2017 takes place at Park Avenue Armory in New York City and starts at 11 AM EST (8:30 PM IST).
