It means there will be two SIM card slots, but you can use one of them for microSD card to expand the storage. Releases for the Galaxy Note line have wildly since its original introduction to the market in 2011.

As it happened with the Samsung Galaxy S8, we now know the design language as well as the hardware components of the phone. Galaxy Note 8 launch date in India is not mentioned or declared yet. If the reported launching date of the Galaxy Note 8 is true, then this will coincide with the LG V30 which is set to be released on August 31 at IFA.

Late yesterday and early today, mobile tech writer Evan Glass, who has published numerous accurate leaks about other devices in the past, posted several images on Twitter that appear to show front, back, and side views of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (product images, shown above). However, there were other details amid this launch to take into consideration, such as Samsung also launching the Galaxy S6 Edge+. This was also seen in the first teaser image which Samsung had launched to announce the arrival of the device.

In terms of dimensions, Blass says we can expect a 162.5mm x 74.6mm body with an 8.5mm thickness.

The ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 launched to market August 19, 2016, after being announced August 2, 2016. The iPhone 7s and/or iPhone 8 may become available to consumers in a similar timeframe, but rumors hint the device may experience a market delay. Thanks to advances in Samsung's camera technology. The optical image stabilization will power both modules of the secondary camera.

More specifically, Blass claims the wide-angle lens features an f/1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus, and is backed up by a telephoto lens with a f/2.4 aperture that provides 2x optical zoom. Just to recall, Samsung had concluded the Note 7 explosion case stating that it was because of a faulty battery that was used in the handset.
