The much-awaited successor of the now defunct Galaxy Note 7 – the Galaxy Note 8 – is poised for an August launch. Samsung finally sent out an official invite for a press event, which is slated for August 23.
On Thursday, July 20, the South Korean OEM sent the invites for the "Unpacked" event, which will be held in New York City. The date ties in perfectly with older rumors, which hinted at the Galaxy Note 8 debuting in end August.
What Does The Samsung Unpacked Invite Reveal?
Before one jumps the gun, the invite from Samsung does not mention that the company would be taking the wraps off the Galaxy Note 8. However, the invite reads "do bigger things" and is accompanied by the silhouette of what resembles the S Pen stylus in blue. It also has Galaxy written on the top right, which affirms that the company will unveil a handset in the series.
The press invite also shows a handset's outline, which is reminiscent of the company's Galaxy S8 flagship. The white edges of the handset seem to curve on the side and the top and bottom bezels appear to be slim. This ties in with numerous leaks and rumors which hint that the Galaxy Note 8 will possibly have curved top and bottom bezels.
