Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to be unveiled in September, might cost around $900
After the disappointment brought by the Galaxy Note 7, all eyes are now on Samsung to see how the company deals with its next generation Galaxy Note, aptly called Galaxy Note 8

According to Venture Beat, the Note 8 will be officially unveiled in the second half of September, and could become Samsung's most expensive mass-produced smartphone. This contradicts a previous rumor, which had it that the Note 8 would be unveiled in August.

Reportedly, an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will cost €999 in Europe. In the US, the new device will probably cost a bit less, possibly around $900 (since European prices are always higher due to VAT).

Venture Beat has it that the Note 8 will sport a dual-curve 6.3-inch display with the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ (pictured above). The handset will be different from the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ thanks to several features, starting with the Note series' exclusive S Pen stylus, which should be accompanied by enhanced software capabilities.

The Galaxy Note 8 will also be different thanks to a dual 12 MP rear camera, and 6 GB of RAM (2 GB more than on the Galaxy S8 family). However, the new Note will be powered by the same processor as the S8 series - Snapdragon 835, or Exynos 8895, depending on market. The handset should also have a fingerprint sensor located on the back, though it's said that this is positioned a bit farther from the camera than on the S8 and S8+. On the battery front, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to offer a 3300 mAh cell - 200 mAh smaller than the battery of the ill-fated Note 7.

It looks like the new phone's official name will be Galaxy Note8, not Galaxy Note 8 - it's a small, but visible difference, though we don't think too many people will care about (or use) the missing space between Note and 8.

Finally, Venture Beat reports that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 should be available in three color variants (black, blue, and gold), likely shortly after its official announcement.

Just like its predecessors, the Galaxy Note 8 will almost certainly be released via all relevant US carriers. We'll be here to let you know more about the handset as soon as new information comes to light.

No stereo speakers, 64gig storage, same S-pen? Btw, where is the innovative note 8 the samsung army talked of? I even see the V30 being more exciting than this. Btw, Its now safe to say samsung have run short of ideas ffs. Apple will now eat samsung alive in 2017 and 2018.

That is completely ridiculous what you said, where and how? Where you saw the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7 and the Samsung golden era still wasn't over, and Galaxy S8 lag, where you saw slowness and lags in those phone which i mentioned? You must be crazy.

"Samsung Golden era lasted only 3 years from 2013-2016." So... the higly-acclaimed Galaxy S3, which is the second best selling Samsung flagship and credited for many smart features from TouchWiz Nature UX, wasn't part of Samsung's golden era?

Never the Note.5

Every company has their greatest hits, doesn't make it their golden era. Since it was released in 2012 and they claimed 2013-2016 I think it's fair to say it began their "golden era".

You'll never hear that from me. What transformed my life, is being fit and healthy. The specs that matter to me, can't be found on a phone. They're: 1. Blood pressure 2. Testosterone levels 3. Blood sugar 4. Urine protein levels 5. BMI Those are the specs that matter. Typed after a kick ass Planet Fitness arm and core HIIT session. The Note 8 will be outstanding, and will be the top phone for 2017. I know it burns your ass to read it, but I've zero interest in the iPhone 8. Oh...and the Lmao, you typed that with a straight face.

I guess what you're saying is that with the S8 being the best reviewed phone on the planet, they've now entered the Samsung Platinum era.

The reeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaasch on this cornball^ is incredible. You and MG have responded on the same article around the same time mad times, does that mean ya both the same person? Me and MG don't talk nothin' alike. Anyone can see that. Try harder, cornball.
