Samsung Galaxy Note8 allegedly coming on August 23

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note8 on August 23, multiple Korean sources reported. The phablet will be announced in New York at a separate event instead of the IFA as has been the case for the past two years.

Samsung will launch the phone earlier, so it can start sales ahead of the iPhone 8 launch. The Koreans might have even more of an advantage this time as Apple may be forced to delay shipping to October.

The Galaxy Note8 is expected to come with 6.3 screen, S Pen and Infinity Display. It also is going to be the first global Samsung smartphone with dual cameras, according to rumors.
