The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might be unveiled soon as the company has already confirmed the news at a launch event called "Galaxy Unpacked" scheduled to take place in New York City on August 23. Interestingly, the latest reports suggest that upcoming phablet will go on sale just one day after its announcement.
According to BGR, several reports from Korea claims that the Galaxy Note 8 will hit stores on September 15 in the country, after a pre-order period that might last for a couple of weeks. The most recent report suggests that pre-orders will go live on September 1, even though the phone will be on display in carrier stores as soon as August 25.
Korea is going to be included in Samsung's first-wave countries for the launch of Galaxy Note 8, and buyers in other countries might also be able to get their hands on the phone sooner than Korean Android fans. According to Trusted Reviews, there is a chance that the leaked roadmap for the pre-order and availability of Galaxy Note 8 only referred to the Korean release.
For the specifications, previous reports claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 or the Exynos 8895 processor, which will be paired with 6GB of RAM and a 3,000mAh battery. Moreover, the Note 8 is said to boast a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.
It is widely claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will boast a dual camera setup at the rear side. In the dual camera system, one will be a primary 12MP wide-angle sensor on the back side, which will come with an aperture of f/1.7 and optical image stabilization and the other secondary 12MP telephoto camera will allow for 2X optical zoom. The upcoming Note 8 is said to run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
