Samsung Galaxy Note 8 image leaks ahead of August launch event
Samsung is slated to unveil the next iteration in its Galaxy Note line on August 23rd, but a crisp image of the handset was just leaked to VentureBeat’s Evan Blass and posted to Twitter. The Galaxy Note 8, which Samsung hinted at in its New York City launch event invite with the phrase “do bigger things,” looks in the product image like a monstrous smartphone, thanks largely to the edge-to-edge Infinity Display technology of the Galaxy S8. Stretched to fit the Note’s larger frame, the screen looks even bigger and the bezels almost nonexistent.
We don’t know too much else about the Note 8, other than that it will come with a dual-camera system and a hopefully non-exploding battery. Given last year’s horrendous Note 7 recall, and the damage it did to the Galaxy brand, Samsung is under serious pressure to deliver a flawless premium phone that can win back consumers and reestablish the Note name in the high-end phablet market. The Verge will be there live next month, so tune in then for all the news from Samsung’s next big phone launch.
