Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Specs: Leaks Reveal Dual Camera & In-Screen Fingerprint Scanner, Slated For August Release
After the renowned Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery fiasco, the South-Korean company had announced that they will still release a safer and more innovative predecessor of the Note 7. The next flagship device, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is then said to exceed features of the Galaxy S8.
According to Tech Radar, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will sport a 6.4in QHD+ Super AMOLED display. The Note 8 is identified to have the same Infinity curved display featured on the Samsung Galaxy S8, just with rounder sides. Samsung users were said to witness some of their failed anticipated features in the Galaxy S8 on the Galaxy Note 8.
Aside from that, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is said to be powered by either an Exynos 8995 or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and run on Google’s Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) Operating system than the most updated version. The Note 7’s predecessor is also said to have 128GB of memory but the RAM wasn’t revealed.
Yet, the most key feature expected in the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is its dual camera hardware with 12-megapixel and 13-megapixel lenses. Another leaked image of the Note 8 also displayed a Blue Coral color option similar to the released option of the Galaxy Note 7 and S7 Edge. The smartphone’s S Pen Stylus accessory is also mentioned to be upgraded as it is able to vibrate and could be tracked via Samsung’s Find My Mobile app.
However, a new change is upcoming on the Note 8 as the leaked images show no fingerprint scanner at the rear side of the smartphone. Rumors then suggest that the handset could have its in-screen fingerprint scanner or possibly have it embedded underneath the phone’s display as reported by Mail Online.
Nonetheless, the battery fiasco of the Note 7 is clearly done as Samsung's mobile chief, D.J. Koh promises a safer and more innovative Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The Galaxy Note 8 is then identified to power a battery pack of 4,000 mAh that underwent an eight-point battery check to ensure safety measures. Speculated release of the killer Note 8 is mentioned to be August this year. However, prices and official announcement aren’t still released.
