Insiders familiar with the matter claim that Samsung has decided to launch the new phablet earlier than usual to have it on the market before the next-gen iPhone, widely rumored to show up in September.

The ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 arrived at the IFA trade show in Berlin, but its successor might show up earlier. The main reason for this seems to be the fact that Apple is expected to unveil the next-gen iPhone in September, so Samsung plans to reveal its next flagship product before that.

According to a report by The Bell that was quoted by The Investor, "Samsung has decided to advance the phone’s launch earlier than usual possibly to secure an upper hand in competition with the upcoming iPhone, tentatively called the iPhone 8, that is widely rumored to come out in September."

Insiders familiar with the matter expect a 6.3-inch Note 8 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor under the hood and a dual-camera setup on the back. This handset is also supposed to offer a fingerprint reader on the back since Samsung failed to add on-screen fingerprint scanning so far. However, Apple's next iPhone is expected to adopt this advanced technology.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
