After sailing through the debacle over Galaxy Note 7 last year, Samsung is set to launch its flagship Note 8, thus ending rumours of halting the further release of the Note series.

The device is expected to be launched online on August 23 at 8:30 p.m.

To regain the customers' trust, the company is believed to have enhanced safety checklist by using in-house '8-point battery test'.

Samsung 'Note 8' may have a separate physical button for its 'Bixby' voice assistant, much like Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus flagship devices.

The device may also come with a digital pen called the "S Pen" that may have a speaker within it, doubling it as a voice recorder.

According to a report in CNET, 'Note 8' will have a dual-camera setup -- likely a 12MP optical and 13MP telephoto sensor and it may also have rounded edges on all sides.

"The Note 8 could top the Galaxy S8 Plus' 6.2-inch display with a 6.4-inch screen on a body not much larger than the S8 Plus," Apple Insider reported on Tuesday.

If reports are to be believed, Samsung is developing a novel "gas sensor" that works as breathalyser. This sensor is expected to be present in Note 8 also which would tell a person if he is drunk.

The fiasco over Samsung's Note 7 caused the firm operating losses of some $5 billion.
