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.
