New York: In an apparent move to take on its biggest rival Apple, South Korean tech giant Samsung could launch its most expensive Galaxy phone to date -- Note 8 -- device in September, not in August as earlier predicted, the media reported. The launch will align the Note 8 with the next iPhone unveiling from Apple which will come with AMOLED display and newly-launched iOS 11.
On the official website, Samsung is urging its interested consumers to apply for the upcoming new phone. Once registered, buyers will get the latest news, product specification, price and availability details of the product.
At present, the pre-registration is only available in Australia and it is expected to be expanded to America, Asia, and Europe.
According to Venture Beat, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 8 may be its priciest one till now with a price tag of $900. Interestingly, the next iPhone is also rumoured to be the costliest Apple device till date with a cost price of $1,000. The report said that the Note 8 will have a 6.2-inch display, dual cameras, 3,300mAh battery, the Exynos 8895 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and 6GB RAM. As far as the software is concerned, Samsung has apparently improved the ease-of-use of split-screen multitasking, endowed the S Pen with more capabilities and added the ability to pin handwritten notes to the always-on display, the report noted. The Note 8 might be available in shades of black, blue and gold.
