Samsung has made it official, while still doing a bit of teasing. The world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices has started to send out invites to its next Unpacked event, which will happening next month on August 23rd at Park Avenue Armory in New York City at 11 AM ET. The invite comes with the text “Do bigger things” which should strongly suggest that the latest addition to its Galaxy Note lineup of phablets, the Galaxy Note 8, will be officially announced a little more than a month from now.
Samsung has gamely decided to offer a new color option beyond the current black, silver, and gray versions of its latest flagship devices -- the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. Indeed, the world’s biggest seller of smartphones is launching a coral blue edition of the Galaxy S8 this coming July 21st.
Yup, according to D.J. Koh, the new mobile chief of the biggest seller of smartphone devices in the world. While in Taiwan recently, Koh told members of the local media that Samsung will be formally introducing the Galaxy Note 8 by late August of this year, as reported by ePrice. While the high ranking executive did not mention any specific date, industry watchers are betting that it might August 23rd or August 26th in New York City.
Some people may be thinking that Samsung would rather want to forget about its disastrous Galaxy Note 7 flagship offering. But the last few months have seen tons of rumors and reports that the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices is looking to give its phablet another shot at a release.
According to a report recently published by Venture Beat, it appears that the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices is planning to launch its newest phablet offering -- the Galaxy Note 8 -- in September later this year, and with a pricing that breaches the $900 mark. Based on past Galaxy Note releases, the devices under this phablet lineup have always been a bit pricey, at least compared to other Galaxy devices.
First off is Samsung and its upcoming Galaxy Note 8 phablet. According to a report recently published by Reuters, the South Korean phone make is said to be looking forward to formally introducing its latest phablet offering some time in late August of this year.
When Samsung’s newest flagship devices -- the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus -- debuted back in March early this year, the handsets generated some buzz because of its Infinity display screen (among many other things).
According to a report recently published by The Korea Herald, Samsung might be launching its upcoming Galaxy Note 8 phablet some time in August later this year. In previous years, the South Korean phone maker had often released new Galaxy Note devices just in time for the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) Show held annually in the city of Berlin in Germany usually in late August.
While it is true that Samsung’s Galaxy J lineup of smartphone devices are not as widely known compared to its Galaxy S or Galaxy Note series, the South Korean phone maker is diligent in regularly updating this range of handsets every year. Indeed, the biggest smartphone vendor in the world has already launched the Galaxy J3 a month ago in the United States mobile market.
