Samsung has set a date for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, looking to right the wrongs of the Note 7 and take us forward into a bigger S Pen powered world.

There's a lot of anticipation for the Note 8, not only because of the fate the befell its predecessor, but also because the Galaxy S8 is a superb phone and we're looking to see those skills enhanced in the Note 8.

The Galaxy Note 8 launch event - Galaxy Unpacked - is scheduled for 23 August 2017 at 11:00EDT. Here's how that works out around the globe:

  • Los Angeles: 08:00 PDT
  • New York: 11:00 EDT
  • London: 16:00 BST
  • Berlin: 17:00 CEST
  • Hong Kong: 23:00 HKT
  • Seoul: 00:00 24 August KST
  • Sydney: 01:00 24 August AEST

The doors are scheduled to open an hour before the event. 

So far it has been confirmed that the Note 8 launch will be in New York City at Park Avenue Armory. There has been no announcement of other regional events, although that's been the case for recent launches, so you may will find that there's a London satellite event and others around the globe.

You can watch watch the Galaxy Note 8 launch live, with Samsung confirming that it will be hosting live video. In the past this has also been available in 360 degrees, so you can watch it through Gear VR too.

Samsung is yet to provide the link to the livestream, but we expect this to go live closer to the launch itself. In the meantime, you can watch the launch of the Note 7, a relive the device that never was. We will update with the live video stream once we have the details closer to the launch event.
