Moreover, some reports were also claiming that the first wave of the launching of the said device will start in September.

For consumers, this should not be considered as shocking news already since these three regions are considered as the large markets. The U.S. and the UK are the two largest Western markets while South Korea has been regarded as Samsung's biggest Asian market. The three above-mentioned regions are said to be the first countries which will receive the said Galaxy Note 8 in September. For the remaining regions and countries, the said device will be available for launching sales in October. Though the dates were not confirmed for the launching of the said device, one thing was guaranteed and that was the device would not hit the store until the IFA is over. It can be recalled that last year's launching of the Galaxy Note 7 became controversial because of some issues. With this, it was reported that Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 will be much of a focus of the company in order to correct the issues which unfolded with the Note 7.
