The Galaxy Note 8 is surely Samsung’s one of the most successful flagship devices, even long after the Note 7 fiasco. Here’s everything that’s leaked previously and everything we know and can expect from the shiny new phablet.
Compared to the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Note 8’s top and bottom are squared-off.
The display will be larger at 6.3″ with the resolution of 2960 x 1440 with the aspect ratio of 18.5:9 – same as the Galaxy S8 lineup.
The final dimensions are 162.5 x 74.6 x 8.5mm and it will be IP68 certified meaning that it will be dust and water resistant.
The Note 8 is supposed to be equipped with Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 chipset in Europe and other parts of the world, while the US will get the Snapdragon 835 chipset. Both variants are expected to come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board and expandable storage.
The Bixby button can be seen on the image, it’ll be placed on the left side under the volume rockers.
The battery is 3300 mAh big, so that should be hopefully enough for even power users and plenty enough for moderate to average users to go through a day without a charger. Qualcomm’s quick charge will definitely be supported but it’s unclear if the Snapdragon version will have the Quick Charge 4.0 or 3.0 version available. Also, fast wireless charging should also be available as we would expect.
USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack port should also be available on the bottom.
As expected, The Note 8 will come with dual shooters on the back. Both will feature 12MP sensors. There will be one with a wide-angle one with f/1.7 aperture and the welcome dual-pixel autofocus, while the other one will have f/2.4 aperture with telephoto lens that’ll enable it to zoom 2x without losing any image quality. Both lenses are expected to have OIS.
On the front, an 8MP sensor will be placed with f/1.7 aperture to take selfies.
Launch colours should include the Midnight black as well as the Maple Gold versions. Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue and perhaps a Gold/Pink variant should also be available in September and later on.
The price of the Note 8 will supposedly start at €999 in Europe.
All of these information are coming from a person who apparently had a look at the final Note 8 in person. As always, take this with a pinch of salt, even if the rumors suggest the fact that nothing major should change in the next few weeks.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be officially unveiled in New York on 23 August.
