The next member of the Galaxy family of flagships to hit the market is the Galaxy Note 8 phablet and, after countless leaks and rumors, its launch date is now finally official. Earlier today, Samsung Electronics published an article about this year's Unpacked launch event, unveiling all the details.
According to this article, "the company is hosting the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked celebration on August 23, 2017, at Park Avenue Armory in New York City. Doors open at 10 a.m. (EST) while the official event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. (EST)." As it happens with all events of such magnitude these days, this year's Unpacked will be streamed live.
Although the invitation does not say anything about the specs and features to expect, it describes the upcoming Galaxy phablet as "the ultimate multitasking device for those who want to do bigger things with their phone."
The Galaxy Note 8 phablet should pack a dual-camera setup, a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, both a fingerprint reader and an iris scanner, 6 GB RAM, and more top-of-the-line features that would put it in the same performance tier with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
