There are plenty of speculative details about what to expect from Samsung's latest handset. In terms of overall design, the Galaxy Note 8 should look aesthetically similar to the Galaxy S8 line, with an Infinity Display that nearly eliminates the bezel on the front.
The Note 8 could also have a larger, 6.3-inch display, as well as dual rear cameras, and, based on the Samsung graphic above, an S-Pen.
The event also marks a moment of redemption for the electronics giant after the disastrous Note 7 recall last year, which was prompted after multiple incidents of Note 7 batteries overheating and catching fire. Samsung eventually ended production of the handset and launched an internal investigation to determine the cause of the explosive batteries.
