Many been expecting the South Korean electronics giant Samsung to sabotage on Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone party, and now we know for certain. Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 8 in early September 2017. Meanwhile, Samsung just threw out invitations for its Unpacked event on August 23rd, where it will announce the new Galaxy Note 8.
The release of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in March was massive success for the South Korean tech giant. It was the firm’s first new high-end smartphone following the awful Galaxy Note 7 with its exploding battery. But the Galaxy Note 8 is just as critical as the previous one, because this is the direct successor to that ill-fated smartphone. It has evolved into Samsung’s flagship cellular device, boasting the electronics company’s design cut and latest and most-advanced technology.
The device also carries the highest price tag in Samsung’s lineup — last year’s Galaxy Note 7 price starts at $849.
With the global recall of the Galaxy Note 7, there was rumors that the Galaxy Note 8 might not even see the light of day, that Samsung might eventually retire the “Note” brand name altogether in an attempt to bury the disastrous mess i brought to the firm. Instead, a public apology was released, an aggressive battery safety campaign, a successful Galaxy S8 launch, and Samsung is ready to launch with the all-new Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung has now officially announced the launch event date. The Galaxy Note 8 will be making its public debut in New York on August 23.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will equip with a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display alongside a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU
paired with 4GB to 6GB RAM. The device will also sports a dual 12MP primary cameras, an updated S Pen stylus, a Bixby button, a fingerprint and iris scanner as well as a 3,300 mAh battery.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to have minimal bezels and to offer a dual camera sensors similar to the iPhone 7 Plus. The device will also follow the Galaxy S8 design with a dedicated Bixby button — finally backed by voice assistance — and the Galaxy Note 8 could be a daunting competitor to the iPhone 8 Plus.
