Samsung to launch Galaxy Note 8 soon; reportedly Samsung’s most expensive phone ever
Samsung is preparing to launch its Galaxy Note 8 this September according to the recent report by Venture Beat. The smartphone which is said to feature dual back cameras with 12-megapixel sensor, 3300mAh battery, 18.5:9 aspect ratio AMOLED display will retail for €999, ranking as Samsung's most expensive smartphone ever.
It was earlier reported by Reuters that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in the second half of August. A reliable source told Reuters that the Galaxy Note 8 will sport a curved screen, marginally larger than the 6.2-inch version of the Galaxy S8 smartphone and feature two rear cameras.
Features of the new Galaxy Note 8 as rumored are:
- Display: AMOLED display
- Size: 6.3-inch
- Aspect Ratio: 18:5:9 aspect ratio
- Processor: Exynos 8895/Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC,
- 3000mAh battery,
- DeX capability
- Colors: black, blue and gold colours.
- Camera: dual 12MP cameras stacked vertically on its back with flash.
- RAM: 6GB
- Heart rate monitor
- fingerprint sensor
The Galaxy Note 8 battery capacity dips from the 3,500 mAh on the Note 7 to 3,000 mAh. this is notably due to the battery issues on the last Note 7 device, caused by cramming too much in there.
A source briefed on the company's plan told VentureBeat that the 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 8 device will be unveiled in the second half of September.
This is great news as it is evident that Samsung won't be folding the "Note" brand following last year’s Note 7 embarrassing disaster to the computer's reputation as the company had to recall the devices and canceled further production.
