Samsung looks ready for a new life with its Note series after its exploding .
The South Korean giant is expected to announce its Galaxy Note 8 on August 23, reports South Korean media outlet The Bell. Citing a Samsung executive, the publication added the earlier date should make the Note 8 available for purchase from "early September."
It's not the first we've heard of an August announcement for the Note 8. The Korean Herald last month reported the phone would be unveiled in late August, just before Apple announces its next iPhone. Other rumours have pointed to a September release date and a $900 price tag (about £700 or AU$1,190 converted).
Samsung declined a request for comment.
