Samsung will reveal its Galaxy Note 8 on August 23 at a launch event the company sent invitations for on Thursday.

The new phone’s predecessor, the Galaxy Note 7, was notorious for its battery problems that sometimes caused the phone to overheat or combust, leading to its global recall in September. The invitation for Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2017 didn’t explicitly announce that the new mobile device will be the Galaxy Note 8, but it did include a silhouette of the Galaxy Note stylus (and the new model has been rumored to be in development).

After Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7, the South Korean tech company’s standing in the public eye took a hit—though it released the Galaxy S8 to acclaim in March.
