Samsung’s Bigger-Screen Galaxy Note 8 Smartphone Could Launch on August 23

A Samsung executive apparently told The Investor that the Galaxy Note 8 phablet will be unveiled later next month in New York City, US, but it did not confirm August 23, 2017, as the official release date. However, according to sources, Samsung wants to start the device’s sale in early September, ahead of Apple’s 2017 iPhone unveiling. And now that Apple is reportedly having software trouble with the wireless charging and 3D sensor of the rumored iPhone 8 smartphone that the Cupertino company plans to unveil in late September, we have all the reasons to believe that its number one competitor will try to take advantage of this and push the sales of the Galaxy Note 8 mobile device a bit earlier.
