Here’s everything you should know about the news the Galaxy Note 8.
Everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8:
Is the news about Galaxy Note 8 real or a hoax?
The company has already confirmed launching a brand new note, Chief DJ Koh confirmed the existence when speaking to CNet and the news surfaced on January 23rd, 2017. Even after the catastrophic outcomes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 the company insists on providing quality products, as Chief DJ Koh already mentioned: “Better, safer and very innovative Note 8”.
Release Date: When will Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Come out?
The company has already confirmed that the phone will be launched in the year 2017, however, they haven’t provided any further detail as to exactly when the phone will be officially released. Previously Samsung has always timed its releases with that of Apples’ iPhones, so the expected release date can be around August (Source: The Korea Herald), as the newest iPhone 8 is said to surface in the market in August.
If it’s competing with Apple, will it come without a headphone jack?
The newest iPhone was the hot topic of discussion due to its decision to eliminate its headset jack since the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is competing with iPhone is it also eliminating its headset jack? Samsung has confirmed that the new Note 8 does, in fact, have a headphone jack, so we can expect the Samsung Note 8 to play our music the traditional way.
However, since no official release date is published by the company itself, there are many possibilities, the company might release the phone earlier to fill the void of Note phones people have faced since the last year or it might release the phone later than August. The S8 along with S8 Plus were released later than their estimated date, chances are the company is investing extra time to make sure their latest phones are 100% safe. The company might also be stalling for time to give S8 enough leverage in the market before they decide to launch the new Galaxy Note 8, nothing can be said for sure until further details are published.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8: What’s New and what should you be Expecting?
Infinity Display was introduced by Samsung on its Galaxy S8 design, leaks have stated that the infinity display design will also be a part of Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The new infinity display shifts the home button to the back of the handset, allowing a sleeker appearance along with the curved edge-to-edge display. The top portion of the bezel is comparatively slimmer, providing for a larger portion of the phone display.

Similar screen size gains can be expected from the newest Galaxy Note 8.
Pixel sense 4k Resolution:
