The terrible tragedy experienced by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is still making an impression on our memory. Learning from the sad story, this year Samsung tries to improve the good name of the series Note with the release of Galaxy Note FE and Galaxy Note 8. Then, what kind of form of this smartphone? Here are rumors of specifications and release date of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as far as we know.
Price and release time
As we have mentioned above, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will slide this year, exactly August 23, 2017. This news is also justified by the Korean Herald, which states that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be released in August 2017 later. Even Samsung has also officially revealed the invitation event titled Galaxy Unpacked.
As for the price affairs, VentureBeat claims that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be priced at around € 999. Even so, this price range is not yet fully accurate alias limited to a mere prediction. Could be the final price will be cheaper.
For the design, we predict that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will use the concept of Infinity Display like Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 +. However, considering this smartphone is a Note series, of course the size will be larger. Or maybe the used bezel will shrink as seen in the picture above.
From the picture is seen curved corner and shrinking corner. Yes, if Samsung Galaxy S8 + using 6.2-inch screen, it is certain Samsung Galaxy Note 8 screen will be bigger than that. Its size can reach 6.4 inches or even more.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 mockup leak itself has spread across various media, not least Slahsleaks. In the leaked image Samsung Galaxy Note 8 looks similar to his brother, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 +.But as we can see, the screen is slightly wider and there is an S-Pen slot on the side.
Meanwhile, on the front was not smelled the physical home button. So most likely Samsung will put the fingerprint sensor in the rear body just as the Galaxy S8 and S8 +.
On the screen, we believe Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will use AMOLED screen type. Because as we know, the three previous flagship smartphone Samsung, namely Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Samsung Galaxy S7 series, and Samsung Galaxy S8 series using a screen with the same type.
In addition, if last year’s Note 7 using Quad HD resolution screen, rumors Note 8 will pinning the screen with a resolution of up to 4K. Actually, the implementation of 4K screen has been applied by Sony on Sony Xperia XZ Premium or Sony Xperia Z5 Premium.
In fact, in everyday life the 4K resolution screen does not make a significant difference, but when you use it for VR, the pixel difference and the clarity of the screen will be visible.
When talking about cameras, Samsung is a smartphone producer with camera kece camera with a small megapixel scale. Therefore, most likely Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will apply the same tradition.
But the question, will Samsung pinning dual-camera on Samsung Galaxy Note 8?
Honestly, until now there has been no accurate leaks about the camera technology used. However, Ming-Chi Kuo and Park Kang-ho analysts have a strong prediction about this. Given, dual-camera has become a trend that must be followed.
Even Kuo expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to use dual-camera 12 MP with CIS support dual photodiode (2PD) technology, 13-megapixel CIS telephoto, dual-6P lens, dual-optical image stabilization and 3X optical zoom. If this really happen, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be a dream for those who like photography.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 definitely mixed with the kitchen runway is really tough as the previous Note series. For the processor, certainly Note 8 using Exynos 8895 or Snapdragon 835 chipset. As for RAM, rumors Note 8 will use up to 6 GB of RAM, remembering usually Note series has a larger capacity RAM.
As for internal memory, Korean media reported that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come with variants of 64 GB and 128 GB and microSD storage slot up to 256 GB. We think this estimate is very reasonable, considering Note 8 will go into the flagship smartphone series of 2017.
As for the battery, most likely Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will use the battery with the same capacity with Note 7 or Samsung Galaxy S8, which is 3,500 mAh.
If this smartphone is actually released in August, it is certainly Note 8 will still use Android Nougat 7.1.1 combined with Dream UI. Samsung’s own UI itself is constantly updated, which features and designs become better and more efficient. In addition, Samsung reportedly also updated features S-Pen and Bixby assistant on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
