Samsung Galaxy S8 Active accidentally confirmed by AT&T?


We can also look forward to Bixby, the company's home-brewed AI assistant, on Samsung's Galaxy S9.

Samsung's strong sales during the period were driven by its latest flagship smartphone Galaxy S8, according to the report. Both devices sport the same Infinity Display but with the Galaxy Note 8 being slightly larger when it is officially announced, we were expecting something bigger.

The phone is expected to feature a SuperAMOLED display which would feature an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. Samsung will unveil the phone on August 23.

Final specifications of the Note 8 smartphone have now emerged. While the overall design of the handset is somewhat similar to Samsung's previous two flagships, the Galaxy Note 8 doesn't seem to be as rounded as the Galaxy S8-series smartphones and instead features slightly sharper and squarish edges. Samsung will launch the smartphone alongside the LG V30 and before Apple releases the iPhone 8. Reportedly, the Note 8 is all set to come out into the markets with a 6.3 inched display.




The Korean tech giant will unveil the Galaxy Note 8 in NY on August 23 (local time), about a month later than the usual date for the world debut of the Galaxy Note series. It essentially served as a test bed for Samsung ushering in the Galaxy Note 7 with a dual-edge design and S-Pen. What is surprising here is that the capacity of the battery expected to be incorporated in the Note 8 is going to be much smaller than the 3,500mAh cell present in the Galaxy S8+. The phone is powered by 6GB of RAM along with 64GB of storage space which can further be expanded with the help of a Micro SD card.

And that's not all Blass provided us with, taking to Venture Beat to reveal what he claims are the final specs for the Note 8, via "a person briefed on the device's final configuration". Although its normal September launch could be delayed by as much as three months because of supply issues, the new iPhone is expected to have numerous same features as Samsung's new smartphone, including a bezel-free front display.

Likewise, in its camera department, Galaxy Note 8 will boast an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f1.7 aperture, while the rear panel of the device will host a dual camera set-up.
