Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the company's upcoming flagship product to the market is expected to feature dual cameras on the back side. Earlier reports have also indicated that the upcoming device is not the first from the South Korean company accommodating the new change.
A report from Android Headlines revealed a 3D-printed Galaxy Note 8 smartphone had been put up on Weibo, the country's regional replacement to Twitter. A side by side comparison of the rumored smartphone next to the Galaxy S6 Edge and the previous generation Galaxy Note 5 itself, suggests a bigger size overall. The device will be thicker than its predecessor with a front-facing physical home button retaining its presence, unlike the existing Galaxy S8 smartphones.
The image renders of the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone predicts a size of 6.3 inches with a similar 18.5:9 display resolution like the current flagship devices. Samsung will also introduce their newly built Bixby AI that replaces Google Assistant provided by the developer by default. The S-Pen, a primary accessory for the Galaxy Note series will now have the same color choice that was part of its predecessor.
Hardware specifications from a report by The Indian Express suggest the device will be equipped with the latest Snapdragon 835 10nm-based processor from Qualcomm. The Galaxy Note 8 will also be equipped with a 3x optical zoom feature for the dual cameras on the back side. With 6GB RAM and combined storage capacities up to 256GB, the new smartphone is expected to run a native resolution of 4K pixels out of the box.
The company last year witnessed an unfortunate event with the Galaxy Note 7 leading into a global recall. This might have triggered an immediate release of its successor, the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung's upcoming smartphone will also feature a 3.5mm audio jack and a USB Type-C port for connectivity and data transfer.
