After the disaster called the Galaxy Note 7, it was expected that Samsung would kill the Note line-up, but reports emerged that Samsung is set to roll out the next in line – Galaxy Note 8. And as it happens, today we have got the first release date leak. As per a certain new report, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could roll out at the late August or at the beginning of September 2017. Samsung is yet to confirm the release date.
First reported by Sammobile who tapped in to their internal sources, the tech giant is launching the device at the IFA, which is scheduled to take place between 1st to 6th September.
“We’ve reached out to our internal sources and have received word that Samsung is planning to release its successor to the Galaxy Note 7 at the conference, though it may share some details sooner,” the publication wrote.
There is no way we can verify the news, and since Samsung is yet to confirm the report, we should take the Galaxy Note 8 release date with a pinch of salt. For what it’s worth, over the last couple of months leaks surrounding the features of the phone make it sound very promising. Early rumors believed that the Note 8 would have an upgrade of 0.3 inches than the Note 7. Later new rumors pointed that the device could even have a 6-inch display.
The most exciting recent news about the Galaxy Note 8 display is that is that it might be coming with an ‘Integrated Fingerprint Recognition.' As far as the design (overall) of the phone is concerned, there aren’t too radical changes expected out of the device. As far as the optics of the device is concerned, the Note 8 could be coming with a dual-lens setup.
This particular set-up is trending since 2016, and it’s obvious that Samsung could very well launch the handsets with the Galaxy Note 8. The Note 8 will be backed by the next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 chipset that'll consume 40% less power, boost the performance of up to 27%. As for the release date leak, we should take it in with cautions, and wait for Samsung to make an official announcement before jumping to conclusions.
