Galaxy Note8 launch event date confirmed: August 23


Samsung has officially sent out invitations to the press for its Unpacked event in New York City, where the company will announce the Galaxy Note8. The invitation includes nothing more than two slim top and bottom bezels of the Note8 with no edges, which indicates the same 2:1 Infinity Display as the one on the Galaxy S8.

Furthermore, this disproves that one rumor that the Note8 would have a significantly larger top bezel than the lower one.

We are glad to see that Samsung’s mishap with the Galaxy Note7 hasn’t impacted the company’s sales or reputation. The proof of this is with the sales performance of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. After all, the Galaxy Note8 is what Galaxy Note5 customers have been waiting for forever: a proper successor to the Note5, one that won’t burst into flames.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is expected to have pretty much the same internal hardware as the Galaxy S8 and S8+: Snapdragon 835 chipset in the US or an Exynos 8895 CPU with 4GB of RAM, and a fully water-resistant metal and glass unibody design. The real kicker is that the Note8 may have a dual-camera setup, though it’s still entirely possible that Samsung will save that for the Galaxy S9.
