There have already been multiple reports over the past couple of weeks that Samsung might launch the Galaxy Note 8 ahead of schedule. Many expect the company to come out with the new flagship handset in August instead of September. A new report out of South Korea today claims that this is precisely what the company is going to do. The report claims that the Galaxy Note 8 launch date is going to be August 26th.

Samsung has previously launched new Galaxy Note handsets at IFA. The convention takes place in Berlin every year, normally in September. That’s also where the Galaxy Note 7 was announced last year.

You can imagine why people initially believed that the Galaxy Note 8 was going to be announced at IFA 2017 in Berlin which takes place this September. However, if recent reports are believed, Samsung might have moved up the Galaxy Note 8 launch date.

It’s claimed that the launch event will take place in New York and that Samsung is in the process of finalizing the venue. Samsung has reportedly decided to advance the launch of its new flagship because it wants to have the Galaxy Note 8 out before Apple can launch the iPhone 8.

Samsung is yet to confirm anything about the Galaxy Note 8 launch date so we’ll have to wait for a couple of weeks before there can be any clarity on the matter.
