Samsung is all set to unveil the Note 8 on August 23rd, and we’ve recently looked at an extremely clear picture of what it’ll be like. Now, we it appears that we might even know its specifications. Comes directly from the same VentureBeat’s Evan Blass (aka @evleaks on Twitter), published what he expects to see from the Note 8, going through of information from someone who has briefed on the device’s configuration. Here’s everything you need to know about Samsung’s next flagship Note series.
Not all rumors appear to be accurate, there have been plenty of leaks about it over the past days and weeks, and information floating around right now that we can assign a fairly high confidence rating to even if it is impossible to be 100% sure about the things until August 23 rolls around. Furthermore, we can only look at what in generally accepted to be genuine as of right now.
It would appear to be an IP68-certified handset which covers dust and water to the point where most people will be just fine although as always-on-display, water-resistant is not waterproof, so keep that it mind folks. Looks-wise, it’s awesome and gorgeous, it is fair to say that the Galaxy Note 8 will look very similar to the Galaxy S8+ that is currently sat at the top of Samsung’s smartphone product tree. The latest Note 8 flagship is said to sport a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, and it is barely larger than the S8+. That screen will feature a resolution of 1440×2560 QHD in a 18.5:9 aspect ratio. When it comes to carrying the thing around the physical dimensions of 162.5mm x 74.6mm, with an 8.5mm thickness could certainly be a lot worse.
Following the Galaxy S8 line mimic, Samsung’s Note 8 will be use Samsung‘s own Exynos 8895 CPU for international handsets, but will carry Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the U.S. Onbe area where the Note 8 does best the Galaxy S8 however is RAM, with the Note 8 boasting 6GB of memory as standard. Storage comes in at 64GB of internal space and that too with a microSD expansion slot.
Continuing with the alleged hardware keys, the Note 8 has dual-lens rear cameras, both featuring 12-megapixel sensors. However, things get interesting in ways similar to Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus in that the primary, wide-angle one has a f1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus and the telephoto lens is f2.4 meaning the Note 8 has a 2x optical zoom.
Fast-charging 3,300mAh battery that’s charged through USB-C or wirelessly. Rear fingerprint sensor, will cost around €1,000, or a little over $900. The notable difference between the devices are the camera systems and the S Pen support on the Note 8.
Finally, we actually don’t know when the Galaxy Note 8 will go on sale, but wheen it does we know what colors (Midnight Black) will be available initially; Maple Gold, followed by Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue in due course.
