Note 9 event set for August 9

Galaxy Note 8 to be made official on 08/23


We are very much looking forward to the anticpated launch of the Galaxy Note 8 tomorrow – much of this information has leaked already, and to be honest, its very much like the Galaxy S8 Plus so….there’s not a ton of news coming out.  For those of you who do still enjoy a nice S-Pen and are looking forward to Samsung’s take on a dual camera setup, stay tuned to us here at Silicon Theory as we will bring you all of the important stuff from the launch announcement.

Note 8 could launch as soon as Sept 15th overseas


Rumored Note 8 design

There were reports yesterday, including this one from Droid-Life, that the Note 8 might launch very soon indeed – just not in the US market.  The date that is running around right now is a September 15 launch in the Korean market, with a US launch coming sometime thereafter.  A September 15th launch for the US is also not out of the question.  It’s pretty common for even a large carrier (especially those from the Asian Markets) to release a phone early to its local clientele, and then bring it to market globally later on.  We are looking forward to this device’s launch, whenever it comes, and will have as much and as many details for you when it does.  But in the meantime, see our earlier post for all the leaked specs, and you can get a bit more info from our “5 minutes of tech” video from yesterday about it.

Galaxy Note 8 specs outed by VentureBeat

In a report from famed Twitter leaker Evan Blass, just about all that you’d care to know about the specs of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 are here for the world to see.  There have previously been pics of the device as well, and some of those we’ve included after the jump for your viewing pleasure.  But first, let’s talk about the raw specs of the upcoming powerhouse “flagship” from Samsung; the device that I’m sure Samsung hopes can rebuild the Note brand after last years fiery end to the Note 7.
