Samsung is set to move on with the launch of the Galaxy Note 8, following the successful launch of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
The launch for the Galaxy Note 8 is reportedly taking place in New York City in the second half of August.
Typically, Samsung has unveiled the Note devices at Berlin’s IFA event in September.
The Note 8 will reportedly come in at over 6.2-inches, larger than the 5.7-inch Note 7. It’s also rumored to come with two rear cameras, the first Samsung device to do so.
The phone is still reportedly still undergoing some design issues, as Samsung is not sure where to put the fingerprint sensor. The position of the sensor beside the camera in the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus was one of the major complaints about the device.
Samsung has to be particularly careful with the Galaxy Note 8, following the fiasco that was the Galaxy Note 7.
The phone had to be scrapped just two months after it hit markets, following several reports world wide of exploding batteries.
The incident, one of the biggest product safety failures in smartphone history, cost the firm $5.4 billion in operating profit and hurt its credibility.
