The event will be also live streamed on Samsung’s official site. The invitation carries showcases the design of the Note 8 with slim bezels at the top and bottom bezels.

Rumors have revealed that the Galaxy Note 8 would be equipped with a 6.3-inch S-AMOLED display that will be supporting an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

The Galaxy Note 8 will be the first Note series phone to arrive with dual rear cameras. The controversial fingerprint reader will be sitting on the backside of the phone.
