Every year, Samsung has two big product launches – one for the new S-series flagship held in the first quarter of the year, and one for the new Note device towards the second half of the year. So far this year we’ve gotten the beautiful Galaxy S8/S8+, and soon, the Galaxy Note 8 will be here to follow it up.
Samsung has just sent out invites for its latest press event that’s being called, “Unpacked 2017: Do Bigger Things”. The image sent alongside this invitation shows an S Pen drawing out the Samsung’s Infinity Display setup, making it quite obvious that the star of the show will be the Note 8.
Current rumors have the Note 8 shaping up to be a pretty impressive piece of tech, but more importantly, this will be the direct sequel to the explosive disaster that was the Note 7. The chances of the Note 8 running into similar issues are very slim, but Samsung’s going to need to use this event to communicate to its fans that there’ still a reason to love the Note line despite 2016’s mishap.
For its rumored specs, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will pack in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or an Exynos 8895 depending on the region of sale. This will be complemented by a healthy 6GB of RAM, though this could see some regional variation. The display on the phone will be 6.3″ in size, but the Note 8’s 18.5:9 aspect ratio and Infinity Display setup with dual curves will help keep the actual device footprint in check. One of the highlights of the device will also be the dual rear camera setup comprising of two 12MP sensors with independent OIS.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 event is set to take place on August 23 in New York City, and we at XDA-Developers hope to be there to see just what Samsung is bringing to the table.
