This is very much consistent with earlier reports on the subject, which have tended to suggest that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch or 6.4-inch display.
Furthermore, there will be two more variants of the Galaxy J series in the market with Samsung Galaxy J3 and Samsung Galaxy J5 for the 2017 editions.
AT&T's subscribers who are yet to receive the new security update on their Galaxy Note 4 units can try searching for the patch manually by launching the system Settings app, navigating to the "About phone" section, and tapping the "Download software updates" option on the following screen.
It is expected that this will be completed in time for the Galaxy Note 8 launch, with Apple also reportedly tinkering with similar technology for the iPhone 8. Such a release time frame will also give Samsung more time to do everything it could to avoid the same embarrassment that it suffered with the Galaxy Note 7.
Samsung is also keen on differentiating the Note 8 from the Galaxy S8. This is the fourth release date leak we've seen for the Galaxy Note 8, each of which has been different. It will also be the first Samsung smartphone with dual rear cameras, which will be arranged horizontally beside the flash and heart rate sensor. The report claims Samsung will be using a 12MP + 12MP dual-camera solution, with each sensor getting independent optical image stabilization. No change is expected in position of fingerprint sensor too, as recently it was learned that an under-screen sensor was causing brightness and security issues.
So as not to repeat all the problems that the company experienced with Note 7, Samsung are releasing the new device with a 3,300mAh battery rather than the 3,500mAh used in the previous model. Aside from being bigger with a 6.3-inch AMOLED display and an S Pen, the phablet will have more power than the smartphone.
