Samsung Electronics plans Galaxy Note 8 launch event for August

Samsung on Tuesday added a new member to its tablet family in India by launching the Galaxy Tab S3 at Rs 49,990.

So claims South Korean website The Bell, which has apparently received intel the device will launch ahead of the iPhone 8, its biggest competitor, due to launch in September.

The second half of this year will see a multitude of smartphones boasting next-gen hardware and not surprisingly, the Galaxy Note 8 is going to belong to this illustrious lineup. However, with prices Galaxy S8 starting at £680, expect it to fetch more than £700.

[THE INVESTOR]Samsung Electronics is expected to unveil the bigger-screen Galaxy Note 8 at a separate unpack event in NY on August 26, according to news reports on June 20.

However, the Galaxy Tab S3 misses out on a holster to store the tablet.The S-Pen has been optimised and it now comes with a new 0.7mm tip that is capable of detecting 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and will support note taking, capturing screen and also allowing users to edit videos in a jiffy.




7/6/17: Based on new leaked renders, courtesy of Poyoco Tech, the Galaxy Note 8 looks set to arrive packing a Galaxy S8-style Infinity display, a vertically-aligned dual-lens camera (much like that expected to appear on the iPhone 8) and a screen-embedded fingerprint scanner.

Details about the Galaxy Note 8 are still scarce, but we'll find out more on August 26, when the device goes official.

It comes with Quad speakers tuned by AKG, fast-charging capability and 6,000mAh battery which supports 12 hours of video playback. The report, according to Google Translate, also says that "a home button will not be the party", whatever that might mean.

It's not clear whether Samsung will be just as picky as to where it sells the Galaxy S8 Active, but if you live outside the USA you probably shouldn't get too excited just yet. The Tab comes in Black and Silver colour options. On the front is a 13-megapixel camera for selfies with f/1.9 aperture and LED Flash.

The person did not elaborate further on the phone including pricing.
