Samsung to unveil Galaxy Note 8 before iPhone 8 release
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 release date will happen in 2017
Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones have only just been released but Samsung is wasting no time as it plans to announce the Galaxy Note 8 in August this year.
After the infamous albeit disastrous Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is planning on making a comeback and just ahead of Apple's iPhone 8 release.
As always rumours have emerged that the upcoming device will feature a dual-camera and a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge screen, this however is not much different to the Galaxy S8 series.
Samsung usually announces the Galaxy Notes devices at consumer electronics show IFA, which is held 1 September, so it may be that the Galaxy Note 8 is announced a few days before.
Apple typically makes its major announcement in September and this year it plans to unveil the iPhone 8, however Samsung's early release may give the South Korean tech giant a head start in the competition race.
