Galaxy Note 8 is expected to launch in late August

After the launch of Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones, the company is now expected to introduce its #Galaxy Note 8 device towards the end of August. Since there is a larger S8 this year, the Note 8 is going to have to do more to stand out.

It's just one month remaining and many eager fans are already asking: how much is Samsung Galaxy Note 8? 2017 is the year that bezels die and we couldn't be happier. Previous rumors have suggested that the display will be a 6.4 inch Super AMOLED display.

It also comes about one month before Samsung is widely expected to announce its latest iteration of the Galaxy Note smartphone after the discontinuation of its fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 phone previous year.

Bixby can now interact with various apps on the Android operating system. I tend to fall in the camp that less buttons is the preferable design route to take.

The company has heavily promoted Bixby, insisting it is "fundamentally" different to rivals such as Siri, Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant and Microsoft's Cortana.

Something that I am excited about is that Samsung appears to be keeping the 3.5mm headphone port. Also, Samsung says Bixby can now read aloud your latest SMS messages and emails - if you use its stock apps on the Galaxy S8.

The back of the device gives us a really nice look at the camera and fingerprint sensors.

Both devices are also likely to get new displays which will cover nearly the entire front of the smartphone. Both devices also feature an enhanced Smart Auto Focus on the front-facing camera that tracks every face in frame so all your shots stay sharp and in focus, even when you're on the go.

Express.co.uk was not best impressed with the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung is likely trying to get the Note 8 into stores before Apple's iPhone 8, which is set to be a huge change from previous generations of Apple's smartphone.
