Samsung electronics will officially unveil its highly anticipated oversized smartphone — the Galaxy Note 8 — on Wednesday, August 23 in New York. The Note 8 will almost certainly be the South Korean’s highest-end flagship handset and to a certain degree because the previous iteration had a huge proneness to explode into flames.
You’ll be able to watch the “Samsung Unpacked” event live at 8 A.M. PT, right here at Velvetiere.
For a while after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, the fortune of Samsung’s phablet smartphone line was undetermined. It soon became quite clear that Samsung electronics isn’t assassinating the brand name. Well all know that Samsung will be launching the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23rd, and according to notoriously reputable smartphone leaker Evan Blass (evleaks), the supersized smartphone will be available as early as September 15th.
Additionally, consumers will be able to pre-order the Galaxy Note 8 on August 24th, just a day after the the Samsung’s Unpacked event.
Blass claimed that the Note 8 pre-orders will come up with freebies of your choice: a 256GB microSD card and a wireless charger or the Gear 360 camera bundles. It’s unclear what freebies in other markets are they getting, but the notable leaker claimed that Samsung will bundle Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders with the DeX dock in European markets. That’s the same dock the South Korea-based technology firm released with the Galaxy S8 that can turn your handset into a PC.
Blass, who goes by the username @evleaks on Twitter, also tweeted a full renders of the Note 8 in black and gold, which can give us an idea of what the device and its dual-camera would look like.
CORRECTION: the options are as follows
1. 256GB card + wireless charger
2. 360 cam
Sorry for the confusion. https://t.co/Db42n4kVCf

Meanwhile, the company has untimely listed the U.S. unlocked version (model UZKAXAA) of the Galaxy Note 8 on its online store. The product linkage itself won’t go anywhere, but it does confirmed the leaked earlier which claimed that the smartphone would be shipped with 64GB of on-board storage for the entry-level model.
