The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 May Be Unveiled On August 23rd With Improved Bixby & S Pen
Rumors have already hinted that Samsung is preparing to bring the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. A new report now suggests the exact launch date of the device.
According to The Bell, Samsung will unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on August 23 in New York. The site said that the scheduled date to release the Galaxy Note 8 was in September due to the late release of Galaxy S8. But sources say Samsung will try to begin the sale of the upcoming phablet globally from the month of September.
However, The Investor revealed that a Samsung Executive has only confirmed that the company will unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in August 2017. Interestingly, the executive declined to give the specific release date of the device. Several reports already suggested that Samsung has decided to land the new phablet earlier than anticipated. Galaxy Note 8 is the successor of the Galaxy Note 7.
The Bell also reveals that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature a set of unique functions with a large display and the S Pen. The phablet must feature the Infinity Display, and this will make the S Pen more useful. The recently released Galaxy S8 has a bezel-less curved display with a 90 percent screen ratio. Now with a bigger screen, it is quite normal that the usage of the beautiful S Pen will increase.
The S Pen could be more sophisticated to provide better writing functions. Important functions related to image and translation services should be more diversified this time. The tech company wants to improve its Bixby application in the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The users of the Galaxy S8 first received this feature, though the application doesn't support the Chinese and the English versions.
The South Korean tech company is trying to rectify these areas with the improvement of the Bixby. This application must support the Chinese and the English language in the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The company will also bring the apps that Bixby can easily access and will prepare the SDKs or the software development tools.
Interestingly, it is reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 display will not have the much expected integrated fingerprint sensor. A competition emerges between the mobile manufacturers to create the display fingerprint sensor after the introduction of full-screen display and disappearance of the home button. The upcoming phablet will probably feature the 6.3-inch display.
