Samsung Galaxy Note 8 set to launch in late August
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be released at the end of August, it has been reported.
Mobile chief of the company, DJ Koh, told reporters in Taiwan that the new device will be unveiled at the end of next month, according to ePrice.
Although he did not reveal the specific launch date for the “phablet”, rumours suggest August 23rd or August 26th in New York. Mr Koh explained that the Note 8 will go on sale in September through to October, though dates will vary depending on the country.
It can be expected that the rollout will be similar to the Galaxy S8, which was launched in the US and South Korea before it arrived in other regions of the world.
Samsung is under pressure with its release of the Note 8 after sales and shipments of its predecessor were stopped after numerous reports of its batteries setting on fire. Therefore, the new model offers the perfect chance for the manufacturer to repair the reputation of the series.
The company offered consumers a full refund of the Note 8 or a swap with the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge and a refund of the price difference. A battery software update was made to prevent devices from charging and remove danger to consumers.
Samsung’s September release of the Note 8 could mean it will be launched ahead of competitors such as LG and Apple. The latest offerings from the two brands are set to be revealed in August and September respectively.
The smartphone market is becoming increasingly competitive as companies aim to keep up with the latest trends among consumers. Phablets offer a combination of tablet and smartphone functionality, providing larger screens ideal for screen-intensive activity such as sketching and web browsing.
Samsung’s original Note increased the popularity of the devices, so it will be interesting to see how the market reacts to the latest offering in the series.
