Samsung is now working on the successor of ill-fated Note 7, which will be named for Samsung Galaxy Note 8. As rumored, Note 8 is said to be the massive phone sporting a 6.3 inches display with a tall 18.5:9 aspect ratio and also, be the best Android phone in 2017. Though it's not yet unveiled, rumors and leaks are starting to pick up pace.

Since the official invitations are sent to the media a month in advance, it's now official that the debut of Galaxy Note 8 is set on August 23 in order to beat the iPhone 8 to market.

"On August 23, Samsung Electronics will reveal the latest member of the Galaxy family with the ultimate multitasking device for those who want to do bigger things with their phone." - Samsung wrote in the invitation

In addition, Note 8 will go on sale in September to October varying from country to country. Samsung's Koh promised a September sales date for some regions; the US and South Korea are usually in the first wave. Looks for sales to stagger globally into October.

As the most powerful Samsung device ever, the specs of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will not let you down, please take a look at this chart and check out its full specs.

Part 3: Design

The Galaxy Note 8 is claimed to feature a 6.4-inch panel, 0.1-inch larger than the Galaxy S8 Plus, famously huge midrange Galaxy Mega and a whopping 0.6-inche larger than the Galaxy Note 7. An Infinity Display seen in S8/S8 Plus might make it see even much bigger.

It will also switch to the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio of the new S series which should mean it remains usable one handed. There was no information on a potential 4K native resolution as Samsung gears up its play into virtual reality.

Rumors also suggested that this iteration is coming with a dual-camera configuration. A reliable Chinese tipster has reasons to believe that the camera system will debut on the long-rumored foldable Galaxy X ahead of the Galaxy Note 8's release. It's also said that the handset will have a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 13MP telephoto one, with combination for a 3x optical zoom.

With a massive screen, the Note 8 will be running out of powerful faster than ever. Thus, a bigger battery seems to be an indispensable. However, in the event of the Note 7 battery, I prefer to believe that Samsung might be apt to keep it small and safe, so the capacity of battery might be around 3,500 mAh.

Samsung Note 8 will have two models of 64G or 128G storage, having 6G RAM. An Exynos 8895 has been rumored for the phone running Android 7.1.1 (Nougat). However, a Samsung official has reportedly said that the Note 8 won't have an in-screen fingerprint scanner as the company couldn't perfect the technology in time. The S Pen meanwhile is a Galaxy Note 8 essential. Reputedly, the S Pen stylus is likely to have a built-in speaker inside.

Part 5: Price

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might cost you a lot of penny. As an edge-cutting Android device, it is set at a fair price. Note 8 is expected to start from $1,100 at least. The prices are varied in different regions. Purchase or not, it's totally up to you. But, facing such a fascinating gadget, it must be hard to hide money from your pocket.

After the disastrous incident of Note 7 battery explosion, Samsung must attach much importance to the production of Note 8. Therefore, I'm pretty sure the Note 8 will not blow up this time.
