There’s a new Samsung Note on the horizon. Yes, I know the Note 7 was a literal dumpster fire, but I have high hopes for the Note 8. With that said, the official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 8 will be on August 23 and this is my attempt at making sense of all the rumors and hype surrounding Samsung’s flagship phablet.
My first thought when the Note 8 rumors started to fly was, “I wonder what they’re gonna call it?” During an interview with CNET, Samsung’s chief of mobile, D.J. Koh, said “I will bring back a better, safer and very innovative Note 8.”

There’s very little confirmed about how the Note 8 will look different from the Note 7, but I do have a few ideas.
There are SO many rumors about the specs of the new Note 8 that it’s hard to know what is and isn’t plausible, but my sources tell me that this list is pretty solid. [plausible]
Much like the specs, there are a lot of questions around the price point of the new Note 8. Samsung increased the price of the Galaxy S8 by $100 when it launched earlier this year, so a price increase for the Note wouldn’t be a surprise. However, I suspect Samsung will try to keep the price under $1000 to try to win back some business from the Note 7 recall. [plausible]
With the ‘Do bigger things’ Unpacked event happening on August 23, 2017, I estimate the presale to happen around August 25th. A ship date for the 8 will most likely happen in late September or early October according to a Samsung spokesperson. [confirmed]
