Samsung Australia Opens Galaxy Note 8 Pre-Registrations

A mysterious Samsung smartphone has passed through Bluetooth SIG, the certification body that regulates Bluetooth device standards.

In the latest leak from Evan Blass, he has provided us with a high-resolution image of the Galaxy S8 Active, showing off the smartphone's side profile and a little bit of its flat screen. The phone will be unveiled on the 23rd of August.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 series will look nearly like the Galaxy S8 series, but with little adjustment at the bottom to accommodate a stylus.

Samsung's Australian website may have jumped the gun on revealing the Galaxy Note 8 pre-order date.

According to the data compiled by Strategy Analytics, phablets with screen sizes larger than 6 inches are set to take up 4.3 percent of the global smartphone market for 2017, rising sharply from 2.3 percent posted previous year. Anyway, we're all eagerly waiting to get the awesome device to be launched at the earliest, what do you say?

Dutch site Galaxy Club has been doing some digging on Samsung's semiconductor website and thinks it's found the camera module that the upcoming phone is going to be using - one that includes advanced features like a 3x optical zoom and an improved HDR mode. The Super AMOLED display which is a proprietary design of the company is sure to look exceptionally bright and good looking when it comes to browsing the internet, Youtube videos or games. The phone has 64GB of storage space which is more than enough for most users but you do have the option to expand it with micro SD card. The phone is running on an Android 7.1.1 Nougat Operating System. Other specifications of the device were leaked yesterday in detail, leaving little for Samsung to unveil whenever it plans to announce the device. The company has already sent media invites for an "Unpacked' launch event to be held in New York City on August 23 and based on the past leaks, we already have a fair idea about the specifications and features of the upcoming phablet".

In addition to the Exynos variant, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come in a Snapdragon 835 SoC variant as well.
