As Samsung prepares to announce its latest flagship Galaxy Note 8 on August 23 in New York City, leaks have become more prominent. Evan Blass in a tweet revealed the final specs and design of much awaited stylus-based phablet.
According to Evan Blass’s post on VentureBeat, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will sport a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Display, keeping the S8 like Infinity Display. The resolution and ratio of the Note 8 screen will be the same as the S8 Plus, at 1,440 x 2,960 in an 18.5:9 ratio. Both the devices look similar in terms of design, though it can be noted that the Note 8 has more squared off corners.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have the same processor as the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus (the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the US, and Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 chip in the rest of the world). However, it will get a boost of RAM to 6 GB, along with 64 GB onboard storage which can be expanded via a MicroSD card.
Samsung has made the biggest change in the camera department with Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The Note 8 has two main rear cameras featuring 12 MP sensors. The primary wide-angle lens has a f/1.7 aperture with dual-pixel autofocus, while the other is a telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture and it enables 2X optical zoom. The front camera is an 8 MP shooter with a f/1.7 autofocus lens.
The Note 8 will be powered by a 3,300mAh battery which supports fast-charging and can be charged via USB-C or wirelessly.
We hope the battery does not overheat or explode this time. Last years, Galaxy Note 7 turned out to be a disaster for Samsung. The phone had major issues with its battery, that ultimately resulted in a total global recall.
According to the reports, the phone will first ship in Midnight Black and Maple Gold colors, with versions in Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue to be launched at a later time. The story says the phone is expected to be priced around 1,000 Euros in Europe.
As mentioned earlier the Galaxy Note 8 will be announced on August 23 in an NYC event and is expected to start shipping by the end of September. Samsung will look to whitewash the stains of Note 7 with the new launch and appeal to the Galaxy Note users community. However, it will be interesting to see the reactions for Note 8.
