Here are the official promo videos and infographics for the Galaxy Note8

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launch today: All you need to know about event time, price expectations, specs and more

Additionally, you can also head to the official website to watch the live-stream.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 follows a similar design path to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ but with a couple of tweaks.

With the Note 8, the amount of screen real-estate for viewing two apps at once, watching a video, or going through a spreadsheet is unmatched. The new phablet, though, has the Infinity Display, which was first introduced in the S8 series and was well-received as it stretched the screen's limits, providing more space to view content and multitask more seamlessly.

Of course, there is one notable area where the Note 8 is actually a regression from its Note 7 predecessor: battery size.

Like with every flagship before, Samsung is throwing in a bunch of freebies to convince you to buy the handset.

We're hoping to hear how much the Note 8 will cost during today's keynote which is happening right now.

BJP sweeps Mira-Bhayander civic polls, Sena suffers big jolt
The voting was held for 94 seats, out of 95 as one unopposed seat has already been won by the Congress candidate. While Shelar shied away from mentioning the name, BJP MP Kirit Somaiya went full throttle at the Shiv Sena.

After all, the last thing the company - or Note fans for that matter - want is a repeat of last year's disastrous recall. The company captioned the video as "Starting August 23, 2017, do bigger things". It's a big phone with big features and McGregor is genuinely excited about what it has to offer. As usual, new S Pen features are in tow. The phone has been rumored to have a large infinity display with a dual rear camera set up and 4 color variants. But, the image that Evan Blass leaks shows the Note 8 in Orchid Grey colour. And yes, there's still a dedicated Bixby button on the phone. For now, this seems like a perfectly good Samsung phone (which is to say, and I should highlight this point, an excellent smartphone overall), but one that will have a hard time standing out in a meaningful way from Samsung's other, cheaper perfectly good phones.

The 10th anniversary iPhone 8 is expected to be announced in September, while Google would take the wraps off the Pixel 2 in October. It will come with features like OIS and 2x optical zoom. The second sensor contains a telephoto lens and an f/2.4 aperture with 10x digital zoom.

Battery: The Galaxy Note 8 will be backed by a 3300 mAh battery unit which can be charged either via USB Type C fast charging or wireless charging.

Depending on the region of sale, the Galaxy Note 8 will either be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset or the Exynos 8895 SoC. The new Samsung Note device sports a glass and metal body and there's curved glass design on front and rear. Chances are that only the United States variant of the phone will come with Snapdragon 835 chip. A 6 GB RAM with 64 GB built in memory, expandable to 256 GB on microSD is the overall memory capacity of this device. It is expected to be backed up by a 3300mAh battery. However, the specs and pricing details should be taken with a pinch of salt until Samsung confirms them on today's launch event.

The new smartphone will be released next month, on 15 September, but it's already available for pre-order.
