There are reports that the name of the new release will be Octopus but it could also be Oreo. Moreover, the device will be powered by a 3300mAh battery with fast charging support.

In addition to USB charging, the phone will also provide complete support for wireless charging, fingerprint scanner including Bixby support. It remains to be seen as to whether the company bundles the wireless charger with the product package.

Initially, the eighth edition of the Galaxy Note will be available in Maple Gold and Midnight Black color variants followed by Deep Sea Blue and Orchid Grey options. Even though the phone will launch on August 23, the device will be available on retail shelves by the beginning of September 2017 for a cost of EUR 1000 ($1190), which sounds very expensive.

We expect Samsung to start pre-order of the Galaxy Note 8 within one or two days after the official launch. To recall, Samsung has reportedly implemented eight-point battery check technique during the production process to ensure trouble free performance of the phone after learning lessons from the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 in 2016.
