Wallet-busting Galaxy Note 8 expected to launch in September

VentureBeat reported today that the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 will be Samsung’s most expensive model yet. The phone is expected to retail for €999 — which should put it somewhere around $900 — and will likely launch in late September. The information comes from someone briefed on Samsung’s plans.

As previous reports have noted, the Note 8 will have a dual camera setup on the back of the phone and come with 6BG of RAM. It will also, reportedly, come in black, blue and gold shades and have a 6.3-inch Infinity Display. Notably, the latest Note model will have a 3,300 mAh battery, which is a lower capacity than the Note 7’s 3,500 mAh version and probably a response to the Note 7’s disastrous penchant for exploding.

The issues surrounding the Note 7 didn’t seem to hurt Galaxy S8 sales earlier this year and if timed right, the Note 8’s release may come before the iPhone 8’s, giving it a slight sales advantage with impatient customers.
