Meanwhile, the company has also announced that Bixby Voice is finally available to Galaxy S8 users. Many reports suggested that Samsung might come up with its own iteration of a smart speaker dubbed Bixby Speaker to rival Google Home and Amazon Echo.
The smartphone will have additional features in comparison with the previous models.
Samsung has officially confirmed the release date of its next flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8. This latest Note will be announced at a Samsung Unpacked event in New York City on August 23rd.
Most of the rumors of the Galaxy Note 8 claim that it will be a large device with the screen real estate bordering north of 6 inches.
“The invitation reads ‘Do bigger things” and features the outline of a phone alongside a stylus – one of the key features of the Galaxy Note series.
So what exactly can we expect from the Note 8? There’s no mention of the word “Note” or the number ‘8, ‘ but it’s highly likely the brand is going to reveal the Galaxy Note 8 based on past rumors and patterns.
At the back, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to sport a 12MP + 12MP dual-camera setup with independent optical image stabilization and Dual Pixel autofocus system. Also, the phone will have curved edges. The smartphone has 6GB of RAM, and will use an Exynos 8895 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor depending on region. The invite that Samsung has been sending does not give out many details, but clearly hints at a Note device. This should let everyone know that the new Note 8 is safe. As you may know, Samsung and even Apple have ditched the in-screen fingerprint scanner for its S8 and iPhone 8 models as it proved too hard to embed.
On the camera front, the Galaxy S device is known for its steady progress since the launch of Galaxy S6, so the expectation is already set really high.
