Galaxy Note 8 rumored to launch in September for €999

We are already progressing to the second half of the year and on the smartphone calendar, particularly Samsung’s, it’s time to unveil the next Note flagship.

Undeniably one of the highly anticipated devices of the year, the Galaxy Note 8 has just got a leaked announcement date from Evan Blass a.k.a. @evleaks. According to their insider, the Note 8 will be Samsung’s most expensive smartphone yet at €999 unlocked or about Php56k when directly converted.

The Note 8 is expected to sport a 6.3-inch 18.5:9 Super AMOLED display which would make it only slightly bigger than the Galaxy S8+ that’s at 6.2-inch. So, what will differentiate the new Note from the S series?

First, it’ll be the first Samsung device to have two rear cameras, a famous trend among competitors including Apple. Each will be a 12MP sensor with optical image stabilization. The lenses are lined up horizontally with the LED flash and the heart rate sensor on its side. Just like with the Galaxy S8, the fingerprint scanner is on the back since there’s no placement available in the front due to the immersive screen-to-body ratio.

Processing is handled by either an Exynos 8895 or a Snapdragon 835, depending on the market. RAM will be 6GB while the battery is just at 3300mAh. The smaller battery could be because of the space needed for the S Pen stylus inside the phone. The phone is expected to be available in black, blue, and gold at launch.

    September is always the month. Nothing new. Ive read na move din sa sept ang Asus 4 series.. Disappointed lang sa fingerprint scanner na sa likod pa rin. Kung tutuusin pwede namang ilagay sa screen na mismo. Well, mas importante sa kanila na mai announce exactly sa sept kesa pulido at pinaganda ang incoming flagship. And also sa battery, siya pa ang nag adjust para lang sa stylus. No way… The price is also exaggerated!
    Samsung is trying to catch up the pricing of Canon and Sony dslr cameras. However, dlsr cameras are mostly used for business kaya babalik ang pera. Unlike sa note 8 na almost 60k na siguro ang srp sa Pinas tapos for personal use lang.. Omg..

    “.. the fingerprint scanner is on the back since there’s no placement available in the front due to the immersive screen-to-body ratio..”.. uhm it’s not that there’s no placement available in front of the screen??.. it’s really because the fingerprint scanner is yet to be perfected to work reliably under the screen by either Samsung or Apple..
