How and When to Watch the Galaxy Note 8 Event Livestream

How and When to Watch the Galaxy Note 8 Event Livestream is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Galaxy Note 8 launch event Livestream kicks off tomorrow, August 23rd. Millions around the globe can tune in and see what’s next for Samsung. However, thanks to countless leaks and rumors we already know exactly what to expect. Here is how and when to watch the Note 8 get announced.

The event is Samsung Unpacked, and the Galaxy Note 8 will take center stage. Of course, most can’t head to New York and see it live, so you’ll need to watch it happen on the Livestream video below.

The event starts on August 23rd at 8:00 AM PT, or 11:00 AM ET for those in the United States. Catch the excitement live on YouTube, as well as Samsung’s own website. You can expect a new Gear Fit 2 smart-band, some accessories, but most of the attention is on the Galaxy Note 8. Here are some last-minute details for those interested.

Users will be able to tune in and see the flagship phone unveiled and shown off on stage for the first time. Not to mention hearing about its bigger screen, new features, water-resistance, and possibly even a release date. Although so far we’re hearing it may come around September 9-15th.

How to Watch the Galaxy Note 8 Livestream

We mentioned a few ways to watch the event above, but this year Samsung actually has multiple ways you can tune in. Including a 360-degrees feed for the Gear VR. Again, that’s August 23rd at 8:00 AM PT.

Those are the four easiest ways to see Samsung’s new Note 8 get announced live on stage.

Galaxy Note 8 Release Info

Once Samsung formally announces the new Note 8, potential buyers will want to know when they can get one. Especially all the Note 7 refugees that had to return the last Note. For any and all the information you’ll ever need click here.

Countless leaks and rumors suggest a release date on September 15th. However, other leaks believe a date closer to September 6-9th is when Samsung will release it to the public. Either way, pre-orders should begin within a week of the announcement so you can reserve your very own Galaxy Note 8.

So what are we expecting? Samsung’s Note 8 should come with a bigger 6.3-inch Quad-HD Infinity display with curved edges. The Galaxy S8 gives us a good idea of what they have in store. It’ll be a little bigger, have dual cameras on the back, and of course the S-Pen stylus. This will likely be Samsung’s fastest, bigger and most powerful flagship smartphone released thus far.

For more information on the Galaxy Note 8 and whether or not you should buy one, check out our slideshow below.

Galaxy Note 8: 5 Reasons to Wait & 4 Reasons Not To

Wait If You Want the Best Display

Wait If You Want the Best Display

If you want the biggest and best smartphone display on the market, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 will be the phone to buy. In fact, we're hearing it will have a huge 6.3-inch Infinity Display that looks great. Earlier this year the company debuted the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Both of those phones have bigger screens than any prior year, and tiny bezels or black bars around the screen. 

The Galaxy S8 release tells us a lot about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. Samsung will likely offer a similar screen where there are no physical button or a fingerprint scanner. It's all screen on the front. The sides will curve off the phone, and the black bars of bezel at the top and bottom are very minimal. Which gives it an edge-to-edge look Samsung calls an Infinity Display. 

Samsung went from 5.5-inches in the Galaxy S7 Edge to 6.2-inches with the Galaxy S8+. The company offered the same big jump from the Galaxy S7 to the Galaxy S8, and we anticipate the same for the Galaxy Note 8. 

If you want a big 6.3-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Infinity Display with tons of space for apps, games or business, the Galaxy Note 8 will be worth waiting for. Recent leaks suggest the bezels could be smaller than what we see with the Galaxy S8 too, making it feel like the entire phone is all screen on the front.

Android 8.0 Oreo vs Android 7.0 Nougat Walkthrough: What to Know

Android 8.0 Oreo vs Android 7.0 Nougat Walkthrough: What to Know is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

This detailed walkthrough will go over everything that’s new in Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo software update for smartphones and tablets. Then, we’ll compare the changes to Android 7.0 Nougat so owners know what to expect from the Android Oreo update.

You’ll find well over 50 changes in Oreo, but only a few are quickly noticeable. That’s because most are behind the scenes tweaks but will still make a big difference during daily use. Some noteworthy additions include bundled notifications, smart text selection, notification dots, picture-in-picture mode, new Android emoji and more.

Google promises a smarter, faster and more powerful experience on Android Oreo. Today, most users have Android 7.0 Nougat which debuted on August 22nd, 2016. And now one year later, Android 8.0 is coming soon to millions of devices from Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and more.

Oreo is a free software update for smartphones, tablets and media devices that support it. However, Google released an early developer preview beta earlier this year, only available for Nexus and Pixel users. That said, it’s now ready for users around the globe. The official Android Oreo release date is August 21st, 2017.

Currently, most Google Pixel or Nexus devices already have Android 8.0 Oreo. They were the first devices to receive an update. Almost every other smartphone or tablet is on the latest Android Nougat release as manufacturers begin preparing for the Oreo release.

During the announcement, Google confirmed multiple key manufacturers have worked closely with them to offer updates to Android 8.0 Oreo faster than ever before. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard such a promise, but these are the company’s that should release updates before the end of 2017: Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global Home of Nokia Phones, Huawei, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp, and Sony. Again, all before the end of the year.

With that said, you now have an understanding of Android 8.0 Oreo and know it’s coming soon to a device you probably own. So what’s new and what can you expect? Read on for more details.

What’s New in Android 8.0 Oreo

New Android 8 features allow you to do more with your phone and tablet And do more easier and faster. Users will enjoy bundled notifications that are easier to manage and read or the new picture-in-picture mode for video. Essentially allowing you to watch a video (or video chat) while doing other things on the phone at the same time. Adaptive and dynamic app icons, an easy text selection tool, and auto-fill in apps like Google Chrome. Android will remember your passwords and logins inside apps. Not to mention faster performance and big changes to make your battery last longer.

Some of what’s new in Android 8.0 Oreo

Here is a detailed list explaining many of the new features. Basically, expect a faster, smarter, and safer experience throughout. Keyword being smarter, as Google added tons of changes that happen automatically to make our devices better.

Keep in mind that some of the changes detailed in our slideshow below are from Android 8.0 Oreo on a Pixel device, or show Android 7.1.2 Nougat on a Nexus 6P. Depending on what Android device you own, things may look slightly different. Not to mention some manufacturers like Samsung and HTC hand-pick which features to add to their phones, and leave others out.

In closing, here is a slideshow detailing new features and how they compare to Android Nougat. You can click any image below to instantly jump to that part of the slideshow to see what’s new. Additionally, the older Android 7.0 Nougat software will always be on the left (if available) while Android 8.0 Oreo features are on the right or by themselves.

We’ll update with more details as they become available. Expect big companies like Samsung or HTC to include most changes, although they may look slightly different. This is because manufacturers add their own skin to stock Android. Keep that in mind as you explore everything that’s new in Android Oreo. Enjoy all it has to offer and drop us a comment below with any questions or concerns.

Notification Dots

Notification Dots

One of the most noticeable and noteworthy changes in Oreo is how it handles notifications. From the new notification dots to bundled notifications making our pull down bar easier to read and navigate. 

With Notification Dots, you'll always know which apps have something new to show you thanks to a small color-matched dot on the top right corner. We've seen something similar from iOS for years, but Google is doing things a little different. 

Any icon with the notification dot has something new or unread (unseen). You can then long-press the icon for a quick glance. Instantly read a text message without opening your text message app. Or even start a new conversation from this same pop-up. 

Notification Dots are extremely helpful in giving us more information, faster and easier, at a glance. They even work in the application tray. You can long-press any app icon with a dot and customize it to control which notifications you want to see.

This isn't available on Nougat unless you use a third party launcher, like NOVA.
