Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Design And Specs Leak May Make You Think Twice About Getting The Galaxy S8
Despite the negativity surrounding the Galaxy Note series, Samsung seems intent on continuing it after rumors of a possible Galaxy Note 8 surfaced. The recent buzz describes the device's possible design and specifications leaving some people debating whether to get the upcoming Galaxy S8 or to wait for the Note 8.
The latest Galaxy Note 8 leak posted last Thursday on Slashleaks showed a sketch of its potential design and some considers it more impressive than that of the Galaxy S8. For one, the Note 8 will sport either a 6.4-inch QHD+ or 4K Super-AMOLED display. More interestingly, the sketch shows a display that takes up more space on the device's front. In other words, the bezels are even slimmer than those of the Galaxy S8.
The leak also mentioned that the Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by the latest processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 though there is also the possibility that the Exynox 9XXX will be the chip of choice for the flagship phablet. As for the device's memory storage, the leak shows it will have 6GB of RAM as well as up to 256GB of internal storage.
Expert Reviews rounded up the rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note 8 and, adding these to those shown in the leak mentioned above, one would certainly do a double take before deciding on getting the highly-anticipated Galaxy S8. Among the possible features of the follow-up to the disastrous Note 7 include a minimum of 64GB of storage, the Android Nougat OS, the new Bixby digital assistant, and the TouchWiz.
It is also expected to carry a hefty price tag considering the Note 7 was worth more than $800. The biggest concern with the Note 8 is understandably its battery. According to the buzz, the phablet will come with a big battery comparable to its predecessor's 3500mAh battery. Samsung has already taken steps to prevent another exploding battery fiasco so expect the Note 8 to be safer despite having a huge battery.
Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy S8 on March 29 at the Unboxed Event in New York while the Note 8 has been rumored to be debuting later in the year. If this is true, fans may want to wait some more months before splurging on the next Samsung flagship smartphone.
