Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 at the coming Galaxy Unpacked event this month. However, in the middle of this, famous leaker Evan Blass has introduced some renders of the upcoming phablet. Even though the renders are interesting, the complete picture of what a device would look in real life is not revealed. However, currently, new leaked photos and information coming from retailers reveal about the release date and other details of the upcoming smartphone.
ETNews has revealed that while Samsung has officially confirmed the Galaxy Note 8's launch in New York on August 23rd, there will be a delay of around three weeks until the smartphone goes on sale. ETNews has a good record when it comes to carrier contacts. Earlier this year the publication has correctly nailed the launch and release dates for the Galaxy S8, Forbes reported.
On the other hand, the latest leaked photos, which was originally posted on MyEverydayTech.com reveals the supposed Midnight Black version of the Galaxy Note 8. However, the page has since been taken down right now. The leaked photos appear to be pretty much in line with what has been seen in Evan's renders. According to the renders, Galaxy Note 8 is said to include the fingerprint scanner on the rear side, next to the dual-camera setup. As per the date on the screen, the pictures were taken less than 24 hours ago, so they're pretty fresh.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be both bigger and faster than the Galaxy S8, and the rumors say that its camera is getting a big upgrade. The device will reportedly boast a smaller battery than the previous generation's explosion-prone Note 7, as reported by Fortune.
The upcoming Galaxy Note 8's battery will be a fast-charging 3300mAh capacity cell, compared to the 3500mAh cell that uses to power the Galaxy Note 7. According to the leaks, two rear-facing cameras will be there in the Samsung's new upcoming phablet. There will be one wide-angle and one with deeper zoom cameras, both of which will be having 12-megapixel sensors, while the front-facing camera will be of 8 megapixels. The dual rear-facing cameras are said to enable advanced imaging including depth of field, powerful optical zoom, better low-light images, and even the ability to slightly edit a photo's perspective.
On the memory side, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is said to sport a minimum of 64GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. Reports also speculate that the Note 8 will run Android Nougat, Samsung's overlay TouchWiz, and the new Bixby AI, assistant.
