Samsung is reportedly going to launch the latest edition to its Note series – The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to be unveiled in the second half of September if reports are to be believed.
Earlier reports have already given us an idea of what all the Note 8 would bring in for us and you can head to the article we have covered already to have a peak of the specifications. Some of the important features, however, are:
- A 6.3-inch Quad HD screen with edge-to-edge display
- 18.5:9 aspect ratio AMOLED display
- S Pen support
- Snapdragon 836 chipset
- 6 GB/8 GB of RAM
- A dual rear camera (12MP + 12MP, both with Optical Image Stabilization)
- 3,300 mAh battery
With nearly the same screen size as that of the Samsung Galaxy S8, this is the first time in history that Samsung has not played the Size card for its Note lineup. Additionally, The Note 8 will be Samsung’s first phone to have a dual camera setup and it is the second to cross the 4 GB RAM threshold as well.
Once again, Samsung could not let go of the awkward positioning of the fingerprint scanner at the back as seen in the case of the Galaxy S8 lineup. Thankfully this time Samsung has managed to provide somewhat distance between the camera and the fingerprint scanner which is quite visible and way more ergonomic, if not the best.
The 3,300 mAh battery in the Note 8 solidifies the fact that the company somehow does not want anything to go wrong this time.
The S Pen will offer the same productive features as seen on the Galaxy Tab S3 and this might be one of the reasons for the end user to go for the Note 8 and ditch the S8 lineup which is available at a much cheaper price point.
Other than all the above-mentioned features, Samsung’s proprietary DeX will be supported by the Note 8.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 color variants
The Note 8 would be coming in three color variants – Black, Blue, and Gold. The front and the back of the device will once again be all glass, with metal surrounding the sides.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Price
The price of the Note 8 would be one thing that would take everyone by surprise. The Note 8 is supposedly going to be launched at a whopping $900 plus range (The S8 lineup started with $725 at launch).
Considering the price the Note 8 would be coming at, whether it will be a wise choice to go for the device or not, it will be completely up to the end user. The reason as to why this is a matter of a debate is the fact that the device has specifications almost identical to the Galaxy S8 with some minor additions like the S Pen support.
That being said, the Note 8 would definitely be a powerful smartphone and a smartphone worthy of the price.
