New Galaxy Note 8 Leak Shows S Pen

These two are the most anticipated smartphones of the year. The launch date of the Galaxy Note 8 is also a month later than the August 19 release date of the failed Galaxy Note 7 previous year. Previous speculations suggested that the Note 8 will have a fingerprint scanner located at the rear. Having been the subject of countless leaks itself, the Note 8 will finally see the light of day on August 23rd in NYC, where Samsung will host an Unpacked event to reveal the phone. The phablet will likely come with a hybrid dual SIM. The external storage can be expanded by means of SD card. They are predicting that demands for Galaxy Note 8 will be much higher than any other times as Samsung Electronics is also selling only 400,000 Galaxy Note FEs. This was also seen in the first teaser image which Samsung had launched to announce the arrival of the device. The Korean company manufactures the Indian variant of its phones locally.

Experts are estimating that sales volume of Galaxy Note 8 will be the biggest ever out of all Galaxy Note models as Galaxy Note 8 is practically a new Galaxy Note that is being released after 2 years due to recall of entire Galaxy Note 7s. The Note 8 will be compatible with LTE band 66, and will support both GSM and CDMA networks in the United States.

The recently leaked image shows resemblance to the previous press invites but shows more of what the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will look like.

The image comes via Evan Blass reports Android Headlines.

Now only this was remaining - after a series of unofficial leaks, Geekbench listing and even a leak on official company website now Samsung Galaxy S8 Active has appeared on the site of AT&T as well.

The Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by Snapdragon 835 in the United States market and Exynos 8895 in global markets. The corners of the device will be more squared-off as it measures around 162.5 x 74.6 x 8.5 mm. Just like Galaxy S8, it will launch with an IP68 rating for dust- and water-resistance. Thanks to advances in Samsung's camera technology. The iPhone 7s and/or iPhone 8 may become available to consumers in a similar timeframe, but rumors hint the device may experience a market delay. According to Evan Blass, it would consist of a 12MP wide-angle lens with f/1.7 aperture and a 12MP telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture.
