After the disappointment brought by the Galaxy Note 7, all eyes are now on Samsung to see how the company deals with its next generation Galaxy Note, aptly called Galaxy Note 8. 

According to Venture Beat, the Note 8 will be officially unveiled in the second half of September, and could become Samsung’s most expensive mass-produced smartphone. This contradicts a previous rumor, which had it that the Note 8 would be unveiled in August.

Reportedly, an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will cost €999 in Europe. In the US, the new device will probably cost a bit less, …


Galaxy Note 7R (FE) speculated to come on July 7 with a $700 price tag

Samsung has long been reported to be preparing a refurbished version of its notorious Galaxy Note 7 for some markets, but the company is yet to confirm the pricing and availability details. A Korean media, however, speculates that the so-called Galaxy Note 7R (or FE – from Fandom Edition) may be coming on July 7 and with a $700 price tag.

If the information happens to be correct, it may mark a release date delay for the Note 7R and a price, which is higher than expected so far. As a reminder, the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 was previously reported to be set for a …

Galaxy Note 7R (FE) gets benchmarked once again, hints at more than acceptable performance

You’ll never guess the alleged benchmarks of what phone just got leaked out!

No, it’s not the upcoming OnePlus 5, this one already got benchmarked a few days ago. 
We’re talking about none other than the upcoming refurbished version of the Galaxy Note 7, which might have made a promising appearance on Geekbench, one of the larger benchmark databases. Depending on who you ask, the phone will be either called the Note 7R or the Note 7 FE (Fan Edition), but anyways, the important part here is that the upcoming safe handset is forming up to be a powerhouse …

As Tony the Tiger would say, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is "Gr3at"

Back in March, while we passed along some information to you about the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 model, we discovered that Sammy had a code name for the Galaxy Note 8. The new version of the phablet was apparently going to be called “Great.” That might be appropriate considering that the Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution, and the Infinity Display. The Snapdragon 836 chipset will reportedly be powering the U.S. version of the device, and compared to the Snapdragon 835 SoC, it features a slightly faster clock speed for the octa-core CPU. The Galaxy Note …

The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note FE to be launched on July 7

Good news for Samsung Galaxy Note fans, as the South Korean company is expected to launch the refurbished version of the Note 7 early next month.

According to the Korean media, Samsung had to delay the launch of the so-called Galaxy Note FE by one week, so instead of bringing it to the market on June 30, the phablet will now be available for purchase on July 7.

As far as price goes, the Galaxy Note FE will sell for around $620 in South Korea. Also, Samsung has decided to boost the number the units available for purchase from 150,000 to 450,000, which is one of the main reasons the …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to be powered by the Snapdragon 836 chipset?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be unveiled in August. The other day, one of the big questions surrounding the phablet might have been answered by an unnamed Samsung executive. The latter reportedly told a Korean publication that the fingerprint scanner for the device will not be embedded under the screen. This news has yet to show up on Note 8 renders, most of which fail to show a rear-facing fingerprint button similar to what is found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.

While the Galaxy Note 8 has long been rumored to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset, a new rumor suggests …

The Galaxy Note 8 won't have an in-screen fingerprint scanner, according to Samsung official

Almost everyone who’s used Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S8, will be quick to tell you just how bad the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor’s placement is. As previously reported, this seems to have been a last second decision, made necessary due to the company’s inability to produce a high-quality prototype for an in-screen scanner in time. And while we’ve hoped the technology would be ready by the time the Galaxy Note 8 enters production, a recent piece of news has just crushed those dreams into fine dust.

As reported by Korean-language publication …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might be announced in late August, ahead of the iPhone 8

The moment Samsung unveiled its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the rumors for its next flagship started pouring in. Most of the reports claim that the Galaxy Note 8 will be coming with a dual-camera setup, and a rather big 6.3-inch edge-to-edge screen.

However, if the Note 8 does indeed feature 6.3-inch display, and it retains the 9:18.5 aspect ratio, introduced with Samsung’s current flagships, there will not be much that will differentiate it from the Galaxy S8+. Samsung might have to pack a lot of extra features to make the Note 8 relevant, especially considering that the device is rumored …

Latest render of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 reveals embedded fingerprint scanner, dual rear cameras

A Twitter user with the handle @PoyocoTech, has sent out a tweet with a render that he claims is an image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. As you can see, the phablet borrows the design from the Infinity Display used on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. The image also reveals that Samsung has worked out the issues it had with embedding the fingerprint scanner under the front screen. We can reach that conclusion because of the lack of a fingerprint scanner on the front or back of the phone, at least in the render that accompanies this story.

On back, you can see a vertically mounted …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to feature Infinity Display, will launch with Android 7.1.1 installed?


Last week, we showed you a video that allegedly revealed the large front panel belonging to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Today, a new report out of the Netherlands suggests that the phablet’s 6.3-inch screen will have the same edge-to-edge Infinity Display as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. That means that the larger screen on the Galaxy Note 8 will keep the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio found on Sammy’s latest flagship models. That is considered a better ratio for watching videos than the 16:9 aspect ratio found on Samsung’s 2016 high-end models, including the twice-recalled Samsung …
