Samsung has already made it official that the Galaxy Note 8 will be made official at an event scheduled for August 23rd. And while we continue to get different leaks and rumors regarding the upcoming phablet, here is the latest from the well-known tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) in which he has mentioned ‘final’ specifications of the much-anticipated smartphone.
To start off, the Galaxy Note 8 is said to sport a 6.3-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Infinity Display. While this simply a taller version of the display we saw on the Galaxy S8, it is said to have squared corners. The same holds true for the body design which will also be featuring square shaped corners along with 8.5mm thickness. If you have seen previous Galaxy Note devices, you know what it would look like.
Samsung is said to launch the phablet with Exynos 8895 processor globally except for the United States where it will be offering the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. There will be 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card) on offer.
The report suggests that there will be a 12-megapixel dual camera system where the primary lens will be a wide-angle sensor with dual pixel autofocus and f/1.7 aperture. The secondary lens is said to be a telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. While a previous report claimed 3x optical zoom, Blass says that the Galaxy Note 8 will be offering 2x optical zoom.
There are no words on the selfie camera yet. The whole package is reported to be powered by a 3300mAh battery. It is said to come with USB Type-C port and become available in Midnight Black and Maple Gold color options initially. This will be followed by two more color variants: Deep Sea Blue and Orchid Grey. As for the pricing, Blass is still sticking to the earlier tipped above $900 price tag once it becomes available.
