Bring it on! As long as the FP Scanner is on the Front-side... not the back.

Definitely enjoying my S8plus since April 19th. Nothing on the market today tops the experience of the S8plus the best phablet today. I'll definitely be purchasing the Note8 in September day one of launch can't wait.

You're the same person that considers the Note 7 and S7Edge the same phone too I bet

Definitely didn't say that. Foxgabanna has no point.

I will only get it day 1 if it is any other colors but black and gold. I hope that new blue color is true and it will be available day 1.

I'm not sure there's much here to differentiate this from the S8 Plus? Depends on the price I guess but dual camera and stylus seem to be it for now?

But why upgrade? The battery will be better on the s8 plus and its been 4 months?

"Note 8 will cost about $900. Ouch." while other devices will easily pass 1000$ and that is not an "ouch" from PA perspective. Classic!

The recently leaked schematics show that Note 8 may include dual stereo speakers and dual camera but the back of the design is fugly like the Mate 9 and no fingerprint scanner in display. Definitely worth $900 or $1000.

Not Worth*

Right, because you're always looking at the back of your phone. SMH.

Samsung will save the in screen fp sensor for the S9 and put the fp sensor in the center on the rear of the Note 8. Spen will continue to reign Supreme and the screen will continue to be the best in the biz... It will be the note 8 and then everything else...

By the time S9 comes Apple would've already adopted fingerprint in iPhone 8 display so as usual Samsung copies Apple SMH.... Moreover no 4000 mAh battery, No 4K display for better VR experience and a rip-off of Mate = FLOP

Mate 9*

Tards gotta tard, I guess. There were articles about Samsung working on in display fingerprint readers three years ago. Shortly after that, Apple started showing an interest in it. Nice try, though.

"It really doesn't need repeating at this point, but we'll say it anyway: last year's Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was kind of a disaster" Of course you will iPA. You have to get your jab in.

S8 with an S pen. Nothing to see here folks.

Best large phone in the market, just like each predecessor.

Every year imbeciles say, "Galaxy S_ with an S-Pen..." & every year the Note is so much more. That's always something to see.

I'm wondering by the above video clip if there is going to be a Note 8 Plus? It looks like the smaller version on the table, and that massive beast in her hands! If there is indeed bigger + version, I'm definitely getting it, as long as it can fit in my skinny jeans lol
