Samsung's next Galaxy Note will be announced on August 23rd

  • Samsung has officially sent out invitations for an Unpacked event on August 23rd in New York City.
  • Samsung hasn't quite outright confirmed the Note 8 will make an appearance.
  • But the invitation features the "Do bigger things" slogan and the image of an S Pen.

Samsung has officially sent out invitations for an Unpacked event on August 23rd in New York City, where it will presumably reveal the next Galaxy Note device. While Samsung hasn't quite outright confirmed the Note 8 will make an appearance, the invitation pretty blatantly confirms it between the "Do bigger things" slogan and the image of an S Pen.

The S Pen is Back

The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to borrow many of the design cues from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, including the edge-to-edge curved Infinity Display, although with potentially a larger screen than even the S8 Plus. The upcoming device is also expected to feature a dual-camera system, comprised of two 12-megapixel sensors. The Note 8 will also serve as a long-awaited upgrade for Galaxy Note fans, given that last year's Note 7 was famously recalled due to battery issues.
