He made the revelation while addressing a room brimming with journalists. According to the announcement, the company has decided to launch the Note 8 in late August, with sale dates set for September and October based on your location.

Back in January, Koh told CNET that the company will not get rid of the Galaxy Note series and will launch the Note 8 despite the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. It's worth noting that it is because of the now-defunct Note 7 that this upcoming Note 8 will have to play a vital role in luring back customers who abandoned the ill-fated Note series following the Note 7 catastrophe.

More leaks and speculations

Meanwhile, Forbes' contributor Gordon Kelly has reported an accidental Note 8 leak coming from none other than the South Korean handset maker, indicating that the company is still making radical modifications.

After doing a bang-up job of giving us a brief glimpse of the Galaxy S8 design, tech tipster, Ice universe (@UniverseIce) has issued another update on the upcoming phablet via a tweet.

The renowned leaker tweeted new renders which he deems as “Galaxy Note8 v2.0," claiming the company has readjusted the device's display in order to accommodate even narrower bezels. While the display of the Galaxy S8 series phones is nothing short of brilliant, Kelly says there's noticeable deformity which can influence the far right and left of the device along with the clock and notification icons. By introducing a flatter display featuring a more abrupt curve, Samsung would be looking to minimize this effect.

Meanwhile, the display of the Galaxy Note 8 will remain at massive 6.3-inches with Samsung reportedly dumping the standard home button. Aside from that, there will be a dual camera and the fingerprint sensor, which the report claims will be located next to the rear camera lens, but marginally apart.
