Although there have been rumors spreading about Samsung discontinuing the Galaxy Note series during the peak of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, new speculations have now claimed that Samsung will indeed be moving on and will still continue its Galaxy Note series.
With this being the case, there is no more doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a surefire thing. Get to know more about Samsung's upcoming flagship as you read on.
Bigger 4K Display Screen
According to reports, the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a bigger screen, possibly at 6.2 inches and will also be a foldable screen. Similar to the upcoming Galaxy S8, specs of the Note 8 specs can also include a full-screen display, a fingerprint sensor, iris scanner and front camera on the display, all without the presence of a physical home button.
The Galaxy Note 8 will also feature a 4K resolution screen with 3840 x 2160 pixels. This upgraded would then pave the way for mobile Virtual Reality possibilities.
However, this immensely affects the Galaxy Note 8 price.
Processor & Android Version
Under the cover, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be packed with two octa-core chipsets running at 3.2 GHz and 3.0 GHz, respectively. These chips are the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 and Samsung's very own Exynos 8895.
As for its Android version, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be running on the latest version of either Nougat or possibly Android O, given that the expected release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be around late 2017. The Note 8 will also include 6GB (or possibly 8GB) worth of RAM while the internal storage is said to start at 128 GB and is expandable with a microSD.
AI assistant and an improved S-Pen
As per reports, the Note 8 is also expected to have a much-enhanced S-Pen featuring its very own speaker, with the company already secured a patent for the said accessory. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will also be featuring its very own Artificial Intelligent Voice Assistant.
