Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to launch in second half of August: Reuters

It seems like we won't have to wait long to see the successor to last year's infamous Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. According to a report by Reuters, Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy Note 8 in the second half of August. The launch details of device comes soon after reports from Korean media that the handset will be announced in mid-August.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly sport a dual-curved edge display, which is slightly larger than the 6.2-inch display found on Galaxy S8+. The Note 8 will also get the new Infinity Display design with thinner bezels and dual-rear camera setup. Samsung was reportedly testing dual camera system for Galaxy S8, but decided to go with a single camera instead.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes as the successor to ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 smartphone. According to Reuters, Samsung is intent on continuing with the Note brand despite the failure of Galaxy Note 7. The Note 7 was introduced in August last year, and was cancelled within two months due to overheating and batteries catching fire. Samsung publicly apologised for the Note 7 debacle and confirmed that the faulty battery design and manufacturing was the cause of the fires. The Note 7 failure is believed to have cost Samsung around $5.4 billion in operating profit.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumoured to launch at an event in New York on August 26. The launch is said to come just a week ahead of LG's V30 launch at IFA in the first week of September and the launch of Apple's new iPhones a few weeks later.
