Samsungs Galaxy Note 8 will be making an appearance in early September in selected markets says Chairman of Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications Division DJ Koh on a recent visit to Taiwan.

Mr Koh advised that the Note 8 will be announced in late August,“>in line with rumours which pin the announcement as being in New York.

Unlike previous launches of Samsung phones which have generally launched in a large amount of markets at once, the rollout of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come in waves. Samsung will bring the Galaxy Note 8 to various markets beginning in September with the rollout expected to continue through to October.

Though he didn’t give any details of the specs for the handset, rumours peg the Note 8 as packing either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Samsung’s Exynos 8895 SoC depending on market with 6GB of RAM. The Note 8 will apparently come with a 6.3″ QHD+ 3840×2160 resolution ‘Infinity Display’, making it slightly larger than the Galaxy S8+.

Renders also show that Samsung will be moving into dual-cameras with the Note 8 likely the dual-camera ISOCell sensors announced at MWC Shanghai, possibly a 12MP wide-angle sensor paired with a 13MP telephoto sensor offering some form of optical zoom.

For all that hardware, you can expect to pay around $1500, though pricing hasn’t yet been confirmed. That will all happen at the launch event, and given there’s still a little over a month left before the launch of the phone, we hope to see more leaks in the lead up.
