This year is expected to be better for Samsung with the release of its flagship smartphones. Two of these devices are the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. The company was earlier rumored to discontinue the Galaxy Note series entirely following the Note 7 issues, but the presence of a Galaxy Note 8 device is becoming more and more evident every day.
Five Expected Features Of The Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Samsung should make it up to all the fans using the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 after the issues with the Note 7 regarding its battery explosion and recall. According to the International Business Times, ere are the 5 features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that we can expect on its launch.
Dual Screen Display: This year, Samsung is expected to move as far away from the Galaxy Note 7 as possible. The upcoming Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come with an outwardly folding dual-screen display. The said dual display will be located at the front and back of the smartphone
Samsung is also said to be working on another smartphone with a foldable OLED display. As you remember, the company released a video ad back in 2013 showing an “in-foldable” smartphone device in which the panel would be folded inwards but the upcoming smartphone is expected to be “out-foldable”. The out-foldable device will be with OLED panels that are placed on sides that would make both the front and the back being folded.
Increased RAM and internal storage: The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard memory in addition to its expandable storage via MicroSD card. On the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, there's just one storage option available and almost all Samsung smartphone devices out there is with as much more than 4GB of RAM only. The storage of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is really incredible having its a very large expansion.
Upgraded S-Pen: The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come with a revamped S-Pen stylus. According to the recently published information in the U.S., the company's patent application was indicating that the presence of a speaker within the S-Pen. Like the Galaxy Note 7, it might weigh only 3g and measure 200mm in length. In fact, that is the length of a standard ballpoint pen for a smartphone.
Non-Samsung batteries: This said feature is kind of obvious since the South Korean tech giant has already found out that faulty batteries caused the battery explosion of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and has already started sourcing batteries from LG. If the main issue that caused the Galaxy Note 7 problems is its battery, Samsung fans should be happy to know that the Samsung is planning to use batteries made by some of its competitors for the Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Release Date
According to Trusted Reviews, the release date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 should scare Apple Inc. Each year, Samsung launches a Galaxy S device around the month of February or March, and then a Galaxy Note device in the month of August or September. That puts the upcoming Note device in direct competition with Apple’s iPhone, and that’s how fans like it.
