The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is coming and that's already been confirmed by the company's top brass. But what will the smartphone look like? We have rounded up rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8's release date, specs, features, and price.
Following Samsung's epic Galaxy Note 7 issue there's no shortage of tension in the company to get the Galaxy Note 8 right. Everyone can agree that the best result for the next phone will be that it doesn't immediately ignite or for the battery to burst into sudden flames. And with Samsung expected to announce its findings of the Galaxy Note 7 imminently, there's a good chance this will all be resolved. We're also anticipating and expecting a powerful hardware, software, and a sleek design too, of course.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Release date
Samsung's traditionally releases a new Note flagship each year at the IFA tech show in Berlin, which offer that the Galaxy Note 8 will make its entrance in early-September 2017. Given that its release is almost a year away, there's no word as to how much the Galaxy Note 8 will cost. If anything like the phased out Note 7, expect it to cost around $700.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Specs
Samsung's Note family is well- known for its large displays, and it's likely that next year's release will continue this way. While no specs have yet leaked, it's most likely that the Note 8 will flaunt a display around the 5.7 inches mark, while speculations surrounding the Galaxy S8's screen suggests it could give a knock in resolution.
Support for Samsung's S Pen likely still included, as will the firm's upcoming artificial intelligence or AI assistant that's set to launch on the Galaxy S8. Unlikely Apple's Siri will be able to respond to complex, layered query.
Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 8 will likely pack the newest and powerful processor, potentially powered by Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 835. We'd also expect at least of 6GB RAM, and a massive, we'll hopefully non-exploding battery.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Extra Features
We can also anticipate the handset to sport all of the usual sensors, which includes an iris scanner and fingerprint sensor. If rumors surrounding the Galaxy S8 are everything to go by, this sensor could come embedded in the smartphone's display. Also, you'll regularly be docking your Note 8 next to your face, either with a Gear VR or Google Daydream View headset
The Galaxy S8 will most likely run Google's Android 7.0 Nougat software, USB-C connectivity, support for wireless charging and IP68 certification and all that fun extras. Samsung needs to win us back so it'll be more likely no price hike. Hopefully.
