We’re well into the second half of the year and that means a second wave of new flagship devices are coming. One of them is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23, according to the official twitter account of Samsung Mobile. When will it actually be in your hands? The company recently hinted at an early September release date in some countries, with others getting it in the fall of October.
More specifically we’ve now heard from both an analyst and a South Korean carrier that the Note 8 will hit stores on September 15.

That makes sense, as we’ve become accustomed to seeing a new S Pen-compatible Android phone every autumn. It also more or less lines up with earlier rumors, as trusted source The Korea Herald has reported the Galaxy Note 8 will come out in August in order to beat the iPhone 8 to market.
TechRadar: The Note 8 will officially be announced on Wednesday, August 23, while it could hit stores starting on September 15. The good news is that the US, UK and Australia are very likely to be in the first wave instead of having to wait until October.

From the last 6 months we have been getting leaks, photos, screenshots and even boxed images to confirm our views on the upcoming flagship of Samsung. The beast is yet to be properly and legally launched. Let’s have a look at these beforehand just to silent our tech savvy heart burns!
GMSArena uploaded a picture stating the color choices for the Note 8, it seems a little different in form factor than other phone leaks we have, but let’s have a look and these beauties too.
At least the S Pen is color-coordinated with the back. A recent rumor says that Samsung will include a case, would that have a matching color too? *fingers-crossed*
For the finals, check out this tweet and register for the #DoBiggerThings #Unpacked2017 show to have your eyes-on the beast!
Till next time, Peace!
