The long-awaited Galaxy Note 8 will be available to buy from 15th September, reports suggest, three weeks after it reveals the device at a special event in NY.

Now only this was remaining - after a series of unofficial leaks, Geekbench listing and even a leak on official company website now Samsung Galaxy S8 Active has appeared on the site of AT&T as well. Which device would outsell the other? Apple is expected to delay the launch of its iPhone 8 as well, thereby giving both, Samsung and LG enough time to gather as many consumers as they possibly can.

Samsung's strong sales during the period were driven by its latest flagship smartphone Galaxy S8, according to the report. Once this report came out, it caused people to wonder if Samsung would release theirs on the same day. In an earlier post, BGR reported that the Note 8 will have a boxier design with Infinity Display and a dual camera on the rear side with the fingerprint sensor.

Samsung has already teased the Galaxy Note 8 under vague, mysterious shots of the phone's silhouette, very much like the teasers for the Galaxy S8.

The device is further expected to offer 6GB of RAM alongside 64GB of internal storage and wireless charging capabilities as well.

As for the battery, which was the main culprit for the woes of its predecessor, the Note 8 features a fast-charging 3300mAh battery.
