New rumours about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which has been confirmed for a launch on August 23, 2017, at an event in New York, have surfaced indicating that the Note 8 might come with wireless earbuds similar to Apple’s AirPod.
Soon after the release of Samsung’s flagship device — the Galaxy S8 and S8+ —rumours about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 flagship phablet began to do rounds.
The main bone of contention among critics as well as fans till now seems to be the placement of the fingerprint reader, which is located near the camera lens on the rear panel of the device — similar to as seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
South Korean giant Samsung might launch with the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 device a pair of wireless earplugs — similar to Apple’s wireless AirPods — that will be powered by its artificial intelligence assistant ‘Bixby’.
According to a report in Korean outlet ETNews, the earphones will feature noise cancelling technology and it’s expected that they will also work alongside the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
