Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launch date confirmed by CEO

Over the past few days, we've heard quite a lot about the alleged Samsung Galaxy C10. Unfortunately, the voice function of it has not been available in the United States since the phone officially launched.

Forget about microprocessors and dual cameras, it's looks that matter the most when it comes to the heated battle between smartphone giants Apple (AAPL) and Samsung Electronics (005930.KR). Not a day goes by that we don't get to see more information surface for the smartphone. The Bell noted that while the launch of the Galaxy S8 was successful, its sales have slowed down recently. The upcoming Galaxy Note 8 is said to have undergone several safety checks, especially with regard to the battery's size, placement and charging capabilities. The company will hold a Galax Note 8 unpacked event in NY in where its first-half strategic smartphone "Galaxy S8" was unveiled.

We don't know what sensors Samsung has chosen for the dual camera setup, but it will likely be a pair of 12 megapixel cameras.

Other rumours suggest a super-fast Snapdragon 835 processor will supply the brains and there could be a refreshed S Pen tucked inside.

According to a report by The Investor, in an interview in Taiwan over the weekend, the Samsung CEO DJ Koh revealed the plans of the company to announce the Galaxy Note 8 in August. Just last month, another source familiar with the production of the device told Reuters that it will be revealed by the second half of next month.

After the unveiling in late August, Galaxy Note 8 will hit stores only in September, ePrice reported citing Koh at a press meet in Seoul. The phablet will be very simple in terms of design.

While we're not sure of the ergonomic implications of such a move, it will remove unnecessary visual overload from the device's front facade.
