Waiting for the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 release date won’t be easy and we’re here to help you decide if you should or not. With the release date almost here buyers are getting anxious.
There are a lot of great Android smartphones available this year. Popular devices like the Galaxy S8, LG G6 and the Google Pixel XL. All of those are solid smartphones, but they aren’t your only option in the second half of 2017.
We can confirm that Samsung will announce the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23rd in New York City, but the real release date is still somewhat of a mystery. Most leaks and rumors point to early September, and here’s what you need to know.
Samsung is reportedly planning a phone with its biggest screen to date, and a set of powerful new dual cameras like the iPhone 7 Plus. Those are two important features for prospective buyers but they aren’t the only thing you’ll want to consider.
With a big phone like the Galaxy S8+ already available waiting for the Galaxy Note 8 is hard, but it also might be worth the wait, making this a tough choice for buyers. Especially if you’re one of the millions that had to return the Galaxy Note 7 after Samsung’s recall.
If you’re on the fence, we want to help you make the right decision. This guide takes you through some reasons to wait for the new and improved (and safe) Galaxy Note 8 release. These are features and changes worth waiting for. We’ll also detail why some of the phones available today are just as good.
In closing, based on past releases we believe the Galaxy Note 8 will arrive on store shelves around September 6-9th. Meaning you’ll have to decide soon, as it’ll be available in just a few weeks.
Wait If You Want the Best Display
If you want the biggest and best smartphone display on the market, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 will be the phone to buy. In fact, we're hearing it will have a huge 6.3-inch Infinity Display that looks great. Earlier this year the company debuted the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Both of those phones have bigger screens than any prior year, and tiny bezels or black bars around the screen.
The Galaxy S8 release tells us a lot about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. Samsung will likely offer a similar screen where there are no physical button or a fingerprint scanner. It's all screen on the front. The sides will curve off the phone, and the black bars of bezel at the top and bottom are very minimal. Which gives it an edge-to-edge look Samsung calls an Infinity Display.
Samsung went from 5.5-inches in the Galaxy S7 Edge to 6.2-inches with the Galaxy S8+. The company offered the same big jump from the Galaxy S7 to the Galaxy S8, and we anticipate the same for the Galaxy Note 8.
If you want a big 6.3-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Infinity Display with tons of space for apps, games or business, the Galaxy Note 8 will be worth waiting for. Recent leaks suggest the bezels could be smaller than what we see with the Galaxy S8 too, making it feel like the entire phone is all screen on the front.
