However, the Galaxy Note 8 may not hit stores until September, if recent reports are to be believed.
Though the Note 8 will have an Infinity display, its screen corners are said to be more squared off than the Galaxy S8 line.
This Google trends graph (via BGR) comparing the traffic for keywords "iPhone 8" and "Galaxy Note 8" shows that consumer anticipation for Apple's flagship phone is much higher than the Note 8. If the reported launching date of the Galaxy Note 8 is true, then this will coincide with the LG V30 which is set to be released on August 31 at IFA. According to the current rumor, Galaxy Note 8 is to come with a dual camera, following the trend set by Apple, Huawei and LG.
On the price front, it is going to be more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S8, as there is no reason for not to increase the price given the improved features that the next flagship devices are expected to be bundled with.
We can expect the dual-SIM Galaxy Note 8 to be available in markets such as India, Pakistan, China, South Korea, Malaysia, and others. And the design is likely to generate the same criticism from Samsung fans who have complained that the off-center, rear fingerprint sensor is awkward to use and causes them to smudge the rear cameras.
Samsung's Galaxy S8 is the most beautifully designed smartphone we have seen this year so far.
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. Probably the iPhone 8. However, Samsung went into a bit of a panic mode when the iPhone 6 released with an updating design and bumped the Galaxy Note 4 market launch up to September 26 in Korea. As per Blass, the Note 8 will have a 6.3-inch display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
And that's not all Blass provided us with, taking to Venture Beat to reveal what he claims are the final specs for the Note 8, via "a person briefed on the device's final configuration". The Note 8 also comes with an S Pen stylus, just like every other Note phone before it.
