Fall is almost here, and it’s officially smartphone season, with Samsung kicking things off by unveiling the Galaxy Note 8 today at its latest Galaxy Unpacked event.
In the past few weeks, there’s been a ton of leaks about the Note 8’s hardware, revealing things like the dual camera system, the S8-style design with a bezel-less Infinity Display, and of course, the return of the S Pen. And while the S8 Plus has a big screen at 6.2-inches, the Note 8 is expected to offer an even bigger 6.3-inch display for those who truly need the most screen real estate.
The Note 8 is also a big launch for Samsung not only as the company’s fall flagship, but the return of the Note brand to market following last year’s calamitous Note 7 failure.
While the event is expected to focus on the Samsung’s big-screened smartphone, it’s possible the company still could have some surprises up its sleeve, especially on the software side of things, where the leaks have been somewhat fewer in number.
We’ll find out in just a few hours when Samsung’s event starts. And of course, The Verge will be on the ground in New York to cover all the action. Here’s how you can follow along:
