Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Final Specifications Leaked Before Official Launch On August 23
Samsung is gearing up for the launch of its 8th gen Note device, the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23rd. After the debacle of the Note 7, Samsung is relying heavily on the performance of its new device to keep the Note series up and kicking in the highly competitive smartphone market. A new leak has given us all the detailed specifications of the Galaxy Note 8.
The Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED 2960 x1440 px display in an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, much like the Galaxy S8 and S8+. In fact, the 6.3-inch display is barely larger than that on the S8+, but as is with every Note phone, the device will have a more square-ish look. Samsung will also ship the Note 8 in two variants, one with the Exynos 8895 Chipset and the other one with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and will feature 6GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage which will be expandable via a microSD card. The device will run on a 3,300mAh battery with Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0 via a USB Type C port along with wireless charging capabilities.
On the camera front is where the Note 8 will make headlines with a 12MP dual-camera setup, featuring on a Samsung phone for the first time. The primary, wide-angle camera will have an f/1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus, while the telephoto lens will have an f/2.4 aperture and will enable a 2x optical zoom. The presence of OIS means that the 4K video recording will be stable and low-light images will have less noise. The front-facing selfie snapper will be an 8MP camera with an f/1.7 aperture. The fingerprint sensor will still be placed at the back of the device next to the cameras. It seems that we won’t see a screen embedded fingerprint sensor this year either.
