Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an upcoming smartphone by Samsung. The phone is rumoured to come with a 6.30-inch touchscreen display. A teaser image promises to “Do bigger things,” which is about what we’d expect from the followup to last year’s Galaxy Note 7 debacle. Rumors indicate that the Galaxy Note 8 we’re expecting to see will rock a larger 6.3-inch version of the Galaxy S8’s Infinity Display, dual rear cameras and 6GB of RAM.
The device’s body will no doubt be water resistant and dust proof, as this has been standard fare for Samsung’s recent flagship devices. Still, no Note without S Pen. Therefore, we fully expect the Galaxy Note 8 to be slightly thicker than the S8 because space will have to be made to house Samsung’s famous stylus. We do not count on Samsung cutting back on battery capacity, so only a slightly bigger body can accommodate both S Pen and battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be powered by 1.6GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and come with 6GB of RAM. Traditionally, new Note devices lean heavily on the Galaxy S-flagship the preceded it in any given year. Under the hood of the Galaxy Note 8, therefor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 or Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 could be doing the honors. The phone is rumoured to pack 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumoured to pack a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear, Although the Galaxy S8 was expected to come with two rear cameras, such a setup never made to the final version of the device. However, we have seen prototypes touting such a camera module, apparently having one twelve, and one thirteen-megapixel sensor. The first is believed to be a wide-angle lens and the second a telephoto lens. Together, this setup should deliver up to three times optical zoom.The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumoured to run Android 7.1 and be powered by a 3300mAh non removable battery, Fast charging using a USB type-C port is a giving in this class, as is Bixby.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tipped to be a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that will accept Nano-SIM. Connectivity options are said to include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, Headphones, 3G and 4G. Sensors on the phone are rumoured to include Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor.
This year’s Note is expected to have a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, a Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB of RAM, along with dual 12MP rear cameras, a 3300mAh battery, an updated S Pen, running Android 7.1 out of the box. Samsung is expected to unveil its new Galaxy Note 8 smartphone at a press conference in New York City in late July. The phone will then go on sale in initial markets the following month in September, as Samsung confirmed, and will continue to roll out in additional markets throughout the month of October.
