The potential release date for the Galaxy Note 8 is nearing, and this means that we are learning about more about the next generation Samsung phablet.
There is no doubt that this device represents one of the most critical releases in the history of the Korean corporation following the fiasco of the Galaxy Note 7.
Indeed, for some time it was suggested that Samsung may kill the Galaxy Note branding following the negative connotations that this exploding device inevitably created. But we know now that the Galaxy Note 8 will indeed arrive later this year.
So the latest indications regarding the Galaxy Note 8 is that the phablet will launch at some point during August, with the intention of gaining the advantage over the Apple iPhone 8.
The Korean publication The Bell claims that the consumer electronics giant has already decided to push the Galaxy Note 8 out to the middle of August, with the iPhone 8 anticipated for September.
However, as is usually the case with these matters, nothing is simple! Another report by SamMobile suggests that the Galaxy Note 8 will instead be revealed at the IFA event in Berlin, scheduled to commence this year on September 1. This would mean that the Galaxy Note 8 would barely precede the iPhone 8, if at all.
Display and resolution
The Galaxy Note 8 will undoubtedly be a powerful performer, but fans of Android devices may be slightly disappointed with indications regarding the display in the handset.
