New Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Leak Reveals Amazing Specs As Expected
The latest news on the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes all the way from South Korea via Weibo and it talks about the impressive specifications of the flagship phablet. With this new leak, the tech industry basically knows almost everything about the Galaxy Note 8 right from the hardware to what's inside.
"Ice Universe," a well-known leaker from that part of the globe, shared on his or her Weibo account that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by either the Snapdragon 835 processor from Qualcomm or its own Exynos 8895 chip. The Galaxy Note 8 will also likely have 6GB of RAM. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the popular Galaxy S8 already come in 6GB versions though they are only available in Asia. It is highly probable then that the Note 8 will also have this model. It remains to be seen, however, if the Korean conglomerate will make the 6GB version of the Galaxy Note 8 available in other parts of the world.
All eyes will be on the battery of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. BGR mentioned that the tech giant allegedly decided to go with a 3,300 mAh battery for the Note 8 to keep things at a safer level and to prevent it from heading on the same fiery path as its predecessor did.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly sport a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 2K resolution. It will also have an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 which basically means the bezels will be thin and the screen will be huge just like with the Galaxy S8. The leaker also mentioned that the Galaxy Note 8 will come with a dual 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. There is a little bit of controversy surrounding the dual camera, particularly how it is designed. In the recently leaked render, the dual camera is situated horizontally and off-center at the back of the Galaxy Note 8. Beside it is the LED flash and then the fingerprint sensor. Suffice to say, not everyone is happy with this design.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which will also come with an updated S Pen, will supposedly be available in three colors - black, gold, and blue. The phablet will be launched on August 26 during an event in New York City. The Galaxy Note 8 will retail for around $900, as reported by Venture Beat.
The Galaxy Note 8 May Arrive Sooner Than Expected But May Lack One Key Feature
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will likely be unveiled on the third week of August though its early launch may mean the phablet will miss out on the integrated fingerprint sensor.
