Confirmed: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Will be Officially Announced on August 23

Samsung to launch the Galaxy Note 8 in the US on August 23rd

Naturally, the Galaxy Note 8 will be at least as powerful as the S8 and the S8 Plus are.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) went official in the last month along with the Galaxy J5 (2017). On the front, we may see the same 8MP autofocus unit seen on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be a great device and it will hopefully be able to make up for the huge mistake the Note 7 proved to be. The sensors are said to be a 12MP wide-angle lens along with a 13MP telephoto lens at the back. Apart from this, the upcoming smartphone is expected to feature a dual rear camera setup - which is another key difference between the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.

It is estimated that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will cost around $900. Samsung Exynos, from its official Twitter handle, posted a tweet that read, "Do what you want. Learn more about #Exynos8895".

SlashLeaks, a platform for leak lovers where users track and share leaks, has a new render of the device that matches gadget and accessory maker Olixar's Galaxy Note 8 cases. The S pen may come with an embedded speaker.

Karnataka government appoints panel to design its own state flag
If the state government does have its way, Karnataka will become the second state after Jammu and Kashmir to have its own flag. The issue of giving the northeastern state its own flag is nearly decided, sources told Hindustan Times in this 2016 report.

The S8 range was launched in the largest market, Brazil, in May when Samsung also reported that global sales of the device had reached 5 million.

Samsung Electronics said its Bixby voice assistant for smartphones will start speaking English but only in two countries: South Korea and the U.S. It also showed a blue stylus, a key feature of Samsung's Note line.

Meanwhile, Chinese tech site ITHome claims that the Galaxy Note 8 will launch with Qualcomm's yet-to-be announced Snapdragon 836 mobile platform. For all this, the company could price Euro 999, which is approximately Rs 70,000, added the report.

That would be consistent with recent Note launches, which have taken place in August to give the phone more time on the market ahead of the latest iPhone, which usually launches in the middle of September.
