There's not long now until this tech is fully and officially revealed, as Samsung's Unpacked launch event for the Galaxy Note 8 will be taking place on August 23 in New York, US.

Android fans in Thailand who want a decent smartphone without spending a heap of money might be pleased to know the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is now available SIM free for just Bt14,900.

The U.S. variant of the Galaxy S8 is SM-G950U and the U.S. model of the Galaxy S8+ is SM-G955U. Even though images of it have leaked for a while now, the quasi-official renders are just now hitting the market. However, they came with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, possibly because Samsung wanted the Galaxy S8 to be its first Nougat-powered smartphone. More than a year old, the Galaxy S7 series run Exynos processor in India, instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 in a few other markets.

The Bluetooth SIG has granted Bluetooth certification to a new Samsung device that is speculated to be the foldable Galaxy X smartphone. Does the handset surprise you in any way? The image was of the Midnight Black variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The phone feature slim bezels on the top and the bottom where the front camera and sensors are located.

Without surprise, the picture confirms that the trend of the moment, the screen without edges, is integrated with the Galaxy Note 8. Besides the exchange discount and cash back, Samsung is also offering up to 24 months EMI option to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge buyers.

As you can see, the render of the Galaxy S8 Active comes from Evan Blass and shows off the rugged edges that feature pentalobe screws.

The back panel of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will share some features with the Galaxy S8.

As you can see for yourself, the smartphone is expected to come with a Cortex-A53 octa-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and cameras of 15mp on both sides of device. While the design (despite being hidden in the case) appears to be in line with previous leaks, the dual camera setup is a bit different in this one.
