Leaked press image shows design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung's Note 8, the first Note model since the discontinued sales of the Note 7 in October, will be unveiled on August 23 in NY and will reportedly be launched in Korea on September 15. But what all would be there in the new Galaxy model to fierce the competition? Reports suggest that the high-end handset is going to compete directly with Samsung's #Galaxy Note 8, as well as Apple's iPhone 8 - all of which are expected to be available at around the same time.

The news of the Galaxy Note 9 featuring a screen embedded fingerprint sensor is a welcome one for consumers. Some may view it as the company's way of compensating for the damning mishap its Galaxy Note 7 caused but the Note 8 will most likely do more than fix the Galaxy Note brand once for all - it stands to be a great phone in general, in spite of the stain of Note 7.

Samsung has already teased the Galaxy Note 8 under vague, mysterious shots of the phone's silhouette, very much like the teasers for the Galaxy S8.

South Korean news portal, ET News, was able to get a statement from the company. Just like its stylus S Pen, emblematic accessory of the Note range. Meanwhile, Samsung made sure that the Note 8 will not come short in the camera department. Images of the final Note 8 design leaked by Evan Blass suggest that the corners will be more squared-off than on the Galaxy S8. But with the certification, it is more or less certain that the device is launching this month.

For starters, the processors are expected to be the same; rumors point to the Exynos 8895 powering worldwide variants, while Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 will likely power the United States version, though there are some rumors pointing to the phone being the first to ship with the enhanced Snapdragon 836 processor.

It also comes with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, with a microSD slot for users who require more memory. Owners will either recharge it through a USB-C port or through wireless charging.

Leaving behind its original dual-pixel technology and entering the era of dual-camera systems, Samsung is now reportedly set to bring a dual, 12-megapixel camera sensor setup on the Note 8 with one f1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus lens and the another f2.4 telephoto lens. It features thin bezels on the top and bottom for sensors and the front camera. Additionally, the smartphone is likely to have some tweaks on the software front to deliver competitive image results.
