Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date is set on a week or two after the announcement. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be launched in August 23 at its “Samsung Unpacked” special media event.

With the launch of the Galaxy Note 8 is nearly upon up, it seems like the South Korean technology giant has one more thing that will make the Samsung’s upcoming smartphone more attractive. Following the trend of other Android manufacturers, Samsung is slated to offer some markets a dual-SIM version of the phablet.

The details come from the South Korean tech company’s own official support page in Austria. It lists another option of the base Samsung Galaxy Note 8 model, certainly the SM-N950F/DS. Following the South Korean-headquartered OEM’s own code, the document signed spells dual sim. This is a feature that is popular in (BRIC countries) Brazil, Russia, India and China – one of the markets where Samsung’s phablet sales is exceptionally strong – but it’s not as endemic in European and North American regions.

The dual SIM variant has been showing up in more smartphones over the past few years, and as more handset devices pick up “global” versions with multiple frequency support and base units ship to more markets, the value of dual SIM version has been on the swing. It would spotted it in a number of smartphones in the European countries.

What the leak details doesn’t tell us is if the dual SIM variant will be the only model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that will be available in European markets. Samsung has a massive portfolio and variants of models at every corner of the globe so making a single SIM and dual SIM available in the market is something that it would be able to succeed in without weakening the market.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Release Date

The Dual-Sim Galaxy Note 8 is an enterprise handset phone and having a business and a personal SIM in the same device not only helps that capacity, but develops another point of distinction between Samsung and Apple’s approach to professional gadgets. We’ll know who’s getting a dual SIM model next week when Samsung launches the Galaxy Note 8 in August 23rd.

Meanwhile, for the first time in the Galaxy Note’s history, Samsung will equip dual-cameras on the upcoming smartphone’s back panel. The dual-camera setup clones what other tech giant’s brands like Apple, LG and Huawei have been doing for the past year, thrusting the capabilities of the smartphones to the next level with a couple of shooters that have different potentials. If this rumors are to be believed, it would not be a shocking surprise to see the Galaxy phone manufacturer brings a wide range of consumer devices with dual-cameras at the rear panel and eventually on the front-facing.

According to ETNews sources, the Galaxy Note 8 will dual-cameras — 13-megapixel and one 12-megapixel — at its back. The latter will apparently feature dual-pixel technology on the Note 8. The dual-cameras will also purportedly allow better low-light photographs. Two cameras are able to combine their captured images to provide a better range of color, light, and darkness than a single camera could. As with previous dual-camera setups, the Galaxy Note 8 will potentially be able to capture photos with detailed color.
