Samsung may launch Galaxy Note 8 on August 23

Samsung just bought a text-to-speech company to presumably help with its Bixby smart speaker

The company's upcoming Galaxy Note 8 could be announced as early as August 23, according to a report from Korean publication The Bell.

One of the most awaited devices of 2017 may release earlier than expected. And the fact that the new iPhone 8 or the iPhone special edition is also set to launch this year as a bonus device, Samsung could definitely use from the edge over the Cupertino rival. The financial details of the buyout deal were not disclosed, but Samsung reportedly paid under $43 million for the acquisition.

Previously, the alleged Cruiser device has been linked to Samsung Galaxy S8 Active for AT&T as well.

Several reports regarding Samsung's plans to renew its rugged Galaxy S8 have been around for quite some time. Perhaps they are looking for a totally fresh launch after the exploding Galaxy Note 7 fiasco that has dogged the company for nearly a year. So, if that happens, the Galaxy Note 8 will rule the smartphone market, at least until the next-gen iPhone arrives. This puts Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on the cards, as Samsung Galaxy S8 was launched in April this year.

This shows that had the Note 7 not developed the unsafe glitch, it would have gone ahead to become one of the best-selling Samsung smartphones.

In recent times, various images of the prototype units of Galaxy Note 8 have leaked online.

And it shouldn't be that much larger than the Galaxy S8 Plus at all.

Based on rumors, the Note 8 sounds like it'll be one helluva phone. The phone might still come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Samsung will continue to support the Note lineup with the S-Pen.

Other rumored specifications on the Galaxy Note 8 include dual 12 megapixel cameras and a choice of either 64GB or 128GB of storage.
