Samsung Galaxy Note 8 expected to be unveiled soon with an 8th generation of the premium device already in the making. The note 8 expected to be – bigger, faster, with a bolder new design, and equipped with the finest S Pen to date. The phone is rumored to bring a screen over 6 inches in size and possibly of higher, 4K resolution.
The materials will be the same metal-and-glass sandwich as the S8, complete with a curved, bezel-less display, rounded corners, and an extra side button dedicated to Bixby, Samsung’s digital assistant. And also, good news: so far nothing seems to suggest Samsung will ditch the 3.5 mm audio jack like many of its competitors do nowadays.
Note 8, too will, have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. And what’s worse, it will once again be positioned to the right of the camera module, just like it is on the S8. However, there’s some good news: this time, Samsung seems to have put a slightly greater distance between the lenses and the scanner, so hopefully this will help counteract accidental fingerprint smudges on the glass.
The display will once again make use of Samsung’s own Super AMOLED technology, and will sport the same 1440 x 2960 resolution as the Galaxy S8.
It will probably feature a Qualcomm chipset, namely Snapdragon 836, making its debut with the US version of the Note 8. This, however, may turn out to be false: our latest intel says Samsung’s latest phablet will be powered by the very same Snapdragon 835 found in the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Meanwhile, the international variant of the device is also said to keep the same Exynos 8895 SoC as Samsung’s current flagship pair.
Now the Galaxy Note 8 is said to be equipped with 6 GB of RAM, being only the third Samsung smartphone to do that, following in the footsteps of the Galaxy C9 and a special edition of the Galaxy S8+.
Related to the camera for specifics, the module is said to be a combination of two 12 MP sensors, one with a wide-angle lens (with an f/1.7 aperture and dual pixel autofocus) and one with a telephoto lens (and f/2.4 aperture).
The end result is said to be able to achieve 2x optical zoom (though previous rumors have suggested 3x “lossless” zoom instead). And as an added bonus, both of these sensors will be equipped with optical image stabilization.
The samsung galaxy note 8 price, we’ve also heard reports of the Note 8’s pricing, and they sure aren’t pretty: €999, or about $900
