Tech behemoth Samsung is all set to release its new flagship Galaxy Note 8 on 23rd August at an event in New York City. Samsung has even sent out invitations to media organizations, which features a bezel-less display outline with a slogan “Do bigger things” and an S pen image. Rumors and speculations regarding the price, specifications, and design of this new flagship have given us an idea of how this Samsung device will turn out.

The company, according to previous leaks, has built the phone water-resistant with a pressure-sensitive screen.
