It is no longer a secret that Samsung’s this year’s flagship Note phablet, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, is set to announce later this month. Samsung has scheduled its ‘Unpacked’ event in New York for August 23 where they are gearing up to take the wraps off the successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 7 successor.
Meanwhile, a famous tipster Evan Blass has jumped the gun and revealed final specifications of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in addition to press renders, showing the device in its full glory. The device, which is said to cost 999 Euros (approximately Rs 75,320), is IP68 certified water and dust resistant. It measures 8.5mm in thickness and offers a bigger 6.3-inch Quad HD (2960 x 1440 pixels) screen featuring 18:9 aspect ratio, making room for some estate at both the top as well as the bottom, much the Galaxy S8 duo. The notable difference, all of its corners appear to be squared-off.
Other leaked specifications include a 3,300mAh battery with fast and wireless charging, a USB Type-C port, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC bundled with Adreno 540 GPU for graphics. Camera-wise, it is supposed to house a 12-megapixel wide-angle f/1.7 sensor with dual-pixel autofocus and a telephoto f/2.4 sensor, enabling 2x fixed zoom. Up front is said to carry an 8-megapixel secondary shooter with a f/1.7 aperture for selfies and video calling.
Recently, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was revealed in press renders, offering a glimpse into its design elements. Evidently, the design of Galaxy Note 8 is somewhat similar to that of Galaxy S8+ (Review) if not identical. The addition of S Pen is not a surprise given that all Note-series phablets equip Samsung’s iconic stylus. The device is expected initially with Midnight Black and Maple Gold colours.
