South Korean technology giant Samsung has been rumoured for a long while to be working on a facelifted smartphone leading its Note line – the Galaxy Note 8. Thanks to invites being sent out by the company, we can now confirm that the Galaxy Note 8 will be revealed during the Unpacked event on August 23.
An interesting tool that Samsung dropped in the build-up to the event is the teaser image, which vows to “Do bigger things”. A lot of people will definitely be looking to see what bigger things Samsung actually does in the aftermath of 2016’s infamous Galaxy Note 7. Rumours indicate that the Galaxy Note 8 we’re expecting to see will rock a larger 6.3-inch version of the Galaxy S8’s Infinity Display, dual rear cameras and 6GB of RAM.
Currently, rumours suggest that the device will be featuring a large 6.3-inch Infinity Display, 6GB RAM, as well as dual rear cameras, and a body that looks somewhat like the Galaxy S8 Plus. Intriguingly, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to run on a smaller battery than its predecessor. The battery could potentially be around 3,300mAh, in comparison to the 3,500mAh battery that directed the Note 7 to explosion issues.
Reports highlight that although Samsung suffered from the Note 7 last year, sales of its new smartphones are positive and the Galaxy Note 8 is, in fact, one of the most anticipated phones this year. But do you think Samsung will keep its promises?
