A T-Mobile spokesperson has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 will not be compatible with LTE Band 71, the new 600MHz frequency that T-Mobile turned on last week.

No images of the device are available yet (the one above is of the S8 version) but we'll get them to you when we can. The Galaxy Note 8, because it has nearly no bezels, occupies a much smaller footprint - size as well as girth - in comparison to a regular 6-inch phone. The Note 8 job is to make everyone forget about the Note 7 battery disaster of 2016. Samsung has a number of trick features using the dual cameras, such as fine control over depth-of-field and simultaneous dual captures to take a whole-scene, wide-angle shot at the same time as taking a close-up, detailed shot.

Just like Galaxy S8, the upcoming Note 8 will have a gorgeous edge-to-edge Infinity display.

Earlier, it was being speculated that the Note 8 might come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box but it's announced that the phone will run on Android 7.1 Nougat.

Apple is under particular pressure to dazzle as the culture-changing California iPhone maker looks for a way to maintain its image as an innovation leader in a global market showing signs of slowing. It is said to have a 5.8-inch bezel-less OLED display.

Samsung is getting more playful with its messaging tools, too. The 10th anniversary iPhone will also offer wireless charging and water-resistance. Pre-sales for the Note 8 will start in the US on Thursday. The iOS developers have already received a set of tools called ARKit to build AR experiences into their apps. After the notoriety of Note 7 past year, its successor had a lot of responsibility on its shoulders. However, the Pixel 2 is said to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-based Galaxy Note 8 will be sold in the US. You can also create a shortcut to launch two of your most used apps with a single tap on the edge panel. It would also feature an Always-On display.

"We have been closely working with Samsung to make meaningful advancements in the science of smartphone quality and safety evaluation", said Sajeev Jesudas, president of safety testing firm UL International, which Samsung partnered to ensure the safety of its smartphone batteries.

The Galaxy Note 7 introduced many an industry-firsts back in the day.
