Samsung will announce the Galaxy Note 8 in August instead of at the IFA conference in September as previously rumored, reveals Korean publication The Bell. It’s unclear whether the handset will have a display-integrated fingerprint sensor when it’s released, though a recent report claims that the firm has decided against installing one because the technology isn’t as secure as it hoped it would be.
At present, we don’t have a lot of information about the Galaxy Note 8. All we know — and it’s not for certain — is that the handset will pack a sizable edge-to-edge Infinity Display, a dual-camera setup and powerful internals, like a Snapdragon 836 processor, 6/8GB of RAM and possibly even a 3,500mAh battery. We should stress, however, that nothing is confirmed.

On a related note, earlier this week we released some (gorgeous) speculative renders of the Galaxy Note 8. They were designed in collaboration with Benjamin Geskin, and are based on the slew of rumors we’ve spun into stories recently, not schematics, CAD files, insider information or anything else. Check them out in the gallery below.
