The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launch date rumors have been confirmed, with the new smartphone set to be unveiled on Wednesday, August 23.
Brace For Impact Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Launch Is On August 23
That’s when the Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event happens in New York City, according to the formal invitation sent to us today. And while it doesn’t spell out Note 8 anywhere, all of the important signs are here.
What to expect from the Note 8
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the South Korean company’s big smartphone comeback story following the Galaxy Note 7 fires and subsequent recall.
It’ll no doubt be touted as a much safer product for this very reason. But it’ll also still push the envelope with a specs upgrade over the Galaxy S8.
Don’t worry though, the bezel-less display will likely make the actual body of the phone smaller than previous Samsung Galaxy Note phones.
Here’s what we don’t expect: a bigger battery (for obvious reasons), and we’re still sheepish on a 4K display and home button underneath the glass. Apple’s iPhone 8 – expected a month later – might not have cracked that code either.
If these new features don’t come to the Note 8, they may saved for the Galaxy S9 next year.
