New Galaxy Note 8 renders will make you want to wait for it

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's up? Brian Tong here and welcome to Googlicious for all the Google you could think of. We've talked about the Galaxy S8 enough already. We really have. But it's also the Android phone that everyone still cares about the most right now. But what about the upcoming Note 8? Samsung has confirmed in a recent press release that a high-end smartphone is planned for the second half of the year. And really, that can only mean one thing. The Galaxy Note 8. And yes Is normally expected around the August-September timeframe, but could this be the phone that addresses some of the issues with the s8 and s8 plus? Take a look at this Note 8 render from Concept Crater. That's based on all the leaks we've heard, up to this point. You'll obviously see the familiar design philosophy to the S8, with it's larger 6.8 inch infinity display. A breakdown of dual lens cameras that's not on the S8 for wide angle shots and a stylus that fits inside the phone. Now the assumption here is that Samsung will even figure out the finger print sensor in enough time so that it lives inside the font of the display instead of putting it right next to the camera lens on the booty side. Of the Galaxy S 8 and S 8 Plus. Again, this is based on the rumors but there are plenty of you that know the note 8 could be the best phone of 2017 whether or not you use the stylus. Give me sung of that. Now jump into the comment and let us know how many of you Are actually just waiting it out for this Note 8. All right, big screen is here for the Galaxy S8 and S8 plus. Well, at least if you're in Korea. Anybody? Anybody watching this right now from Korea? [FOREIGN] [MUSIC] Well, the [UNKNOWN] voice assistant promises to be integrated Directly into the OS, but right now people are just using the Google assistant as they get used to that, because it's actually good. Bixby ends up losing more of it's relevance to Galaxy users. There still isn't an official date when it's expected to roll out to the U.S., but reports say Samsung is hoping for this month. Now that's not the only software bugaboo, some S8 and S8 Plus users, are reporting an issue where the phone just Randomly reboots. A thread in Samsung's forums is already 27 pages long where users report that during normal usage or even sometimes just sitting on standby, the phone will reboot out of nowhere. And this is also happening when the phone is in use. One fix being shared is to remove the microSD card because Some users are saying that the phone is asking them to transfer files to the SD card before it reboots. It's a quick fix for now, and it sounds like a software issue that hopefully gets resolved soon. And Google io is just three weeks away on May 17th to the 19th. They've announced some improvements this year including larger venues for sessions, reserved seating for attendees, and there will be 150 sessions That will all be live streamed at the Google IO homepage. One change is that there will be a developer keynote right after the main keynote that ends at 11:30 AM so that devs can take advantage of the new product announcements. Now we can expect to see in depth reveals for the new flavor of Android O aka maybe Oreo, Google Home Improvements, Android Ware and Google's Daydream. The Google Pixel held its own standalone event after iO last year, and that will most likely be the same this time around. Alright, that's going to do it for this week. You can email me at googlicious@cnet.com, or tweet me at briantong. Thanks so much for watching And we will catch you later for some more of that Googlelicous. come sa ha me da [MUSIC] Googlelicous.
