Looking forward to the Galaxy Note 8? If so, you’ll want to sit down before you read a new report that’s come out about Samsung’s next Android flagship.
Samsung is reportedly planning to reveal the Galaxy Note 8 in late September. That’s according to VentureBeat, who’s been told by a source that the Note 8 will cost €999, which could turn out to be around $900 in the U.S. given the pricing of the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
For such a high price, you’d expect that the Note 8 will be packed to the gills with high-end features, and you’d expect right. The Note 8 will reportedly have a 6.3-inch 18.5:9 Super AMOLED display, meaning it’ll have the same aspect ratio as the S8 and S8+ but a slightly bigger screen.
Also said to be included with the Galaxy Note 8 is 6GB of RAM, up from 4GB on the S8 and S8+, and a dual 12-megapixel rear camera setup. That latter feature would be a first for Samsung, and so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of features the company includes with the Note 8 if today’s rumors pan out.
The Note 8 will allegedly be powered by an Exynos 8895 or Snapdragon 835 processor, depending on the market, as well as a 3300mAh battery. Other rumored features for the Note 8 include a fingerprint reader located to the right of the rear cameras, improved split-screen multitasking, support for Samsung’s DeX dock, and new S Pen features.
The Galaxy Note phones are typically high-end, pro-tier devices, and so we could see Samsung giving the Note 8 6GB of RAM and dual 12-megapixel rear cameras to help it stand out from the S8 and S8+ as well as the other flagship phones on the market.
