Galaxy Note 8 Specifications
Coming to Note 8's rumoured specifications, several leaks have suggested that the smartphone will feature a 6.3in dual-curved edge Super AMOLED Infinity Display with Quad HD+ resolution (1440 x 2960 pixels) while some rumours are hinting at 4K resolution display.
The internal components of Galaxy Note 8 are expected to be identical to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, wherein the US variant is expected to include the octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor chipset while the rest of the world will likely receive the Exynos 9 8895 chipset.
On the memory front, the Galaxy Note 8 is touted to be Samsung's first flagship to feature 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. There is no confirmation of the storage details, but rumours suggest it will be available in 64GB and 128GB models.
Among other rumoured specs, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to sport a 12MP dual rear camera setup with independent optical image stabilisation and Dual Pixel autofocus system. An 8MP front-facing selfie camera is also on the cards.
Galaxy Note 8 is expected to ship with a smaller 3,300mAh battery to keep its thickness and weight in check for a sleek and stylish look. The upcoming flagship phablet is also likely to include an improved S-Pen with revolutionary features like the ability to pin handwritten notes to the Always-on display.
