Later this month, Samsung will be taking the wraps off its next big flagship device, the Galaxy Note8. Ahead of the announcement event on the 23rd, a new report from smartphone leakster Evan Blass has revealed the “final configuration” of the highly anticipated smartphone.
The Galaxy Note8 will feature a 6.3-inch dual-curved edge Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2960 Quad HD+ resolution and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. As can be seen in the press render above, the phablet does resemble the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ from the front, although the corners are far boxier, giving it a slightly different appearance. Things are slightly different at the back as well. Instead of a single 12MP camera on the S8 and S8+, the Galaxy Note8 will feature two 12-megapixel sensors. The primary 12MP sensor will be coupled with an f/1.7 aperture lens and feature dual-pixel autofocus tech. The secondary telephoto lens will feature an f/2.4 aperture lens and allow for 2x optical zoom. As revealed earlier, both the sensors will be optically stabilized, something that hasn’t been done yet by any other manufacturer. The front-facing camera will feature an 8MP sensor paired with an f/1.7 aperture lens.
Moving on to the internals, Galaxy Note8 will be running on the Exynos 8895 chipset in most markets while in others like the US it will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. In terms of memory, the smartphone will be equipped with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A microSD card slot will be included as well, allowing further expansion up to 2TB. Keeping the lights on will be a 3,000mAh capacity battery with fast wired as well as wireless charging.
