Samsung Galaxy Note 8 set to go on sale 15th September

Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event on August 23 is fast approaching, which means we haven't got long until the Galaxy Note 8 is finally revealed.

"Since OLED iPhone has canceled under-display fingerprint recognition/touch ID function, and as Galaxy S9 will have the new selling points of upgraded iris recognition and dual camera, Samsung has no need to risk adopting under-display optical fingerprint solution in a hurry". The look on the other side of the device, though, received mostly positive reviews like "pretty as hell" and "absolutely stunning".

Samsung must be eagerly gearing up for the release of Galaxy Note 8. With the Galaxy Note 8, it is expected to do even better and leave its history with the Note 7 behind.

"The shipment of Samsung's smartphones rose 12 percent year-on-year as U.S. consumers have posted very positive responses to the new S8 products", said Ken Hyers, an analyst at Strategy Analytics.

KGI has reported that the Galaxy S9, which is expected to release next year, will feature the same rear placed fingerprint sensor, while the Galaxy Note 9 will feature a screen embedded fingerprint sensor. From a market standpoint, Samsung is weighing its options carefully against Apple, which won't launch another iPhone until late-2018 once the iPhone 8 is launched this year. Images of the final Note 8 design leaked by Evan Blass suggest that the corners will be more squared-off than on the Galaxy S8.

That's everything known about the Galaxy Note 8 from Samsung as of today. The bottom bezel of the phablet is empty.

According to the recent leaks, the price of Galaxy Note 8 will be around €999 (or approx Rs 75,749). The smartphone will also include an S Pen stylus that could be overhauled with enhanced pressure sensitivity.

Internally, the device will reportedly feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset for US phones (which are usually the variant that Canada receives as well), and the company's own Exynos 8895 for worldwide models, with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable by MicroSD. Over the past 12 hours, we know when the phone would be coming out in the markets, as well as the complete list of specifications of the Note 8.
