Samsung Electronics is going to introduce ‘Galaxy Note 8’ in August and start selling it in early September.
According to a Taiwanese IT media called eprice, Department Head (President) Ko Dong-jin of Samsung Electronics Wireless Business Department said at a media meeting in Taiwan that Samsung Electronics is going to introduce Galaxy Note 8 at the end of August and officially start selling it globally in early September.
Samsung Electronics’ executives such as President Ko and Vice-President Lee Young-hee of Wireless Business Department had meetings with representatives from Taiwanese mobile network providers and had a media meeting by answering questions from media. It is heard that Samsung Electronics is going to first release Galaxy Note 8 in South Korea, U.S, and England.
There is a high chance that unpack event for Galaxy Note 8 will be held in New York on the 23rd of August. It is likely that Samsung Electronics is going to start preorders of Galaxy Note 8 in South Korea through South Korean mobile network providers for about a week or two and release it on the 1st or the 8th of September.
Samsung Electronics introduced Galaxy Note 7 in New York on the 2nd of August of last year and released it globally on the 19th of August.
Introduction date and release date of Galaxy Note 8 is about 20 days later than that of Galaxy Note 7. It seems that it is inevitable for Samsung Electronics to change schedules of premium Smartphones starting from Galaxy S8 series because it had to strengthen its safety inspection as a result of recall of entire Galaxy Note 7s.
It is likely that Galaxy Note 8 will be equipped with 6.3-inch Infinity Display (18.5:9 ratio) and Exynos8895 chipset (Qualcomm Snapdragon835 for North American model). It will be the first Galaxy Note series to have a dual rear-camera and it is heard that it will have 6GB RAM, 64 and 128GB internal memory, wireless charging, and waterproof and dustproof with IP68 rating.
It will have 3,300mAh battery, which is 200mAh lower than a battery used for Galaxy Note 7, and is going to support AI (Artificial Intelligence) voice assistant called Bixby. It is predicted that its S Pen, which is the first S Pen to have speakers installed inside, will support voice translation service.
