South Korean giant Samsung has officially sent out invites for an Unpacked event to be held in New York on August 23, where the company will launch the next generation Galaxy Note device. While Samsung has still not confirmed that the device will be Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the invitation, however, shows the “Do bigger things” slogan along with the image of an S Pen.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come with the edge-to-edge curved Infinity Display but will sport a bigger screen than S8 Plus.
The upcoming flagship is rumored to feature a dual-camera system, sporting two 12MP sensors with optical image stabilization. The camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be in a horizontal position and the two sensors will be separated from the fingerprint sensor by the LED flash and along with the heart rate tracker in the middle.
Other leaks have indicated a Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 SoC (depending on the market) along with 6GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly come with 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, will be IP68 certified that includes dust/water proof over 1.5 meters and 30 minutes and will support Samsung Pay.
The phone will reportedly cost €999, or slightly over $900 in the US and might be released in black, blue, and gold.
The company has previously launched Note range of devices at the IFA event in Berlin. However, an August launch will give the South Korean giant nearly three weeks to create a commercial buzz and to bring its flagship device in the market before the tenth anniversary iPhone launch.
