Deliver is estimated at 15 September.

Samsung is set to unveil its next phablet in the Galaxy Note series on Wednesday. And oh gosh, they have pulled it off well. The expectations were high considering the last year's fiasco with the Note7. Rumors indicate that the Note 8 will be similar to Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in many ways, however; there will be quite a few differences too. Hence, it's not surprising to see the Samsung Galaxy Note8 draw its design inspiration from the Galaxy S8 and S8+ brothers. The company describes the edge-to-edge screen as an "infinity display". It's a 6.3 inch Quad HD (2,960 x 1,440p) panel with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

On the inside, the Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by Samsung's 10nm FinFET based Exynos 8895 SoC for its global variants, while the device will get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the U.S. and Chinese market. Not as valuable, but essential if you use up a lot of internal storage space and battery life. Samsung officially confirmed that the Note 8 comes out into the markets with a 64GB built-in storage as well as support for SD Cards.

Samsung has announced the next big thing in its smartphone line-up. The regular/wide-angle lens has an aperture of f/1.6, and the telephoto lens is f/2.4. The Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an 8MP front-facing camera. The Galaxy Note 7 which was later brought to the market as Galaxy Note 7 FE (Fan Edition) is a nightmare to the company. The flagship phablet comes with a 3,300mAh non-removable cell.

Connectivity wise, the Galaxy Note 8 offers Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, VHT80, MU-MIMO, 1024QAM, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, ANT+, USB Type-C, NFC, MST, GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou, and 4G LTE Cat.16.

The battery might be an issue for some, considering what happened a year ago.

The Galaxy Note 8's S Pen comes with a finer tip and offers improved pressure sensitivity as well.

Another highlight of the Note 8 is the S-Pen that the phone comes out with.

The S Pen is always one of the major features of Samsung's Note phones, and the Note 8 is no different. The Infinity Display has nearly removed side bezels to give the device a simple yet immersive styling. Time for some meetings by the pool, huh? Thus you will find a fingerprint sensor round the back, next to the dual-camera array.

After that, Samsung's President of Mobile Communications DJ Koh took to stage to make the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
