Indeed, Samsung's boast is that anything you can do with touches, taps, and swipes on your Galaxy S8's display, you can now do exclusively by voice. "Besides confirming the late August reveal of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, he said that sales of the Galaxy S8 smartphones are well above those of the Galaxy S7 devices". The ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 was announced last October, so we'd expect that Samsung announces the Note 8 around the same time.
But not even moments after the Note 8 leak, we got a taste of what Samsung's next premium smartphone will be like, that is the Galaxy S9.
Reuters/Kim-Hong JiSamsung Electronic's Galaxy S8 and S8 are displayed at its store in Seoul, South Korea, April 27, 2017. Samsung is right now working on polishing its Bixby AI which has been subject to criticism over delays in support, especially in English-speaking countries.
Samsung has announced that they will be launching the blue coral version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in the U.S. this Friday the 21st of July. It is also expected to feature an upgraded camera and some analysts believe that it could be a dual camera setup.
All sides of the Galaxy Note 8 are shown off in this unofficial render. The reason for vertically aligned sensors would be to offer better performance for augmented reality (AR) applications. That may change later this summer when Apple finally takes the wraps off the iPhone 8, but for now Samsung is at the head of the pack. We all know that the phone is a flagship model and in fact, the Note family is held in higher regards than the Galaxy S family.
Now it seems the Galaxy Note 8 will follow the S8 with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner. Owners of the Galaxy S8 will notice that the fingerprint sensor has been moved further away from the camera sensors.
