Galaxy Note 8 may be announced August 23rd

oh well


The Verge, some months back, reported that the Samsung’s latest flagship of “Note” will be released in August. Now, they are further confirming that time frame from two Korean publications.

The Bell reports that the announcement date will be August 23rd, while another source, The Investor, says a Samsung executive only confirmed the month of August and not a concrete date.

There is a lot of August showing up in our faces hence it is safe to assume that it’s all going down next month taking into consideration that the Notes have a history of being announced in summer. Well, not until they started blowing up.

That notwithstanding, VentureBeat’s Evan Blass speculates that the new device will have the same 6.2-inch screen as the Galaxy S8 Plus, though it will be differentiated by a dual-camera system, as well as its signature S Pen.

Blass adds that the dual-camera system could be positioned horizontally as it is comprised of two 12-megapixel sensors.

The fingerprint sensor is likely to be next to the cameras, just like its younger bro; the S8. He reports that the phone will start at about €999, or slightly over $900 in the United States. The release colours may be in black, blue, and gold. Let’s wait on it!
