[Report] Samsung to announce the Galaxy Note 8 in late August

Posted June 22, 2017

The pictures show a device that is virtually identical to the Galaxy S8 on the front, but show the rumored dual-camera setup on the back. However, Note 7 was launched on 2nd August previous year.

More importantly from Samsung's point of view, a late August launch date implies that it would have an opportunity to bring in its latest flagship device in the market ahead of arch rival Apple's equally anticipated iPhone 8.

It is being reported that the implementation of optical fingerprint reader that was tested on the Galaxy Note 8′s display was imperfect due to uneven screen brightness; the area containing the fingerprint reader appeared brighter than the rest of the screen.

Even the Google Pixel released a year ago bests the OnePlus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S8 in image quality. The company's most anticipated flagship phone of the year Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled to launch at an event in NY in the third week of August, as indicated by one industry insider who recently released an image of an assumed screen protector for the same smartphone. Galaxy S7 Edge was Samsung's flagship in 2016 and was launched at a price of Rs. 56,990. The iPhone generally comes out once a year, and generally during the same part of the year, so we wont expect a new model until September of this year.

Created to give Apple's iPad Pro a good competition, this Galaxy Tab S3 by Samsung is designed with many similar features, like similar screen size, fingerprint sensor, 3.5mm jack and stereo speaker. With this combination, the smoothness and speed of OnePlus 5 is apparent, with The Guardian noting that it performs well or even better than other flagships. We've chosen to forgo the mid-August rumor because there was absolutely no argument for its validity, whereas late August has some meaning and history for the company.

A succeeding report by Korean website Naver then nailed the specific date that Samsung is targeting for the event, which is August 26. Honor 6X comes with a 5.5-inch full-HD display.

The South-Korean tech giant Samsung is on a roll. On top of that, the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau, tweeted this very same information on his official Twitter account, so we know for sure that it's all set in stone. Could it be that Samsung will launch the S8 Active this month? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
