There have been a lot of speculations surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which is slated to launch soon, but not yet confirmed by Samsung. Now there are new renders and a 360-degree video which provides us a look at the upcoming phablet which is due in September.
However, we cannot comment on the authenticity of the leaks. The leaks, however have been published by @OnLeaks and 91mobiles.com so we can safely assume the renders would be pretty close to the real deal as the sources have a good track record on unreleased devices.
While looking at the renders of the Galaxy Note 8, the immediate thing you notice would be the redesigned back, which features a dual-camera configuration placed horizontally which as opposed to Apple’s iPhone 8 which is also slated to launch in September is expected to come with vertical dual cameras.
Another feature we noticed is the large bump on the back which houses not only the lens, but the fingerprint sensor and the flash (we are guessing dual-LED). The renders however put the end to rumors of fingerprint sensor embedded under the screen. The only ray of hope is that Samsung has not confirmed of such fingerprint sensor under the display.
In the renders, the Note 8 looks pretty much like the Samsung Galaxy S8 which features a 6.3-inch display with a slightly redesigned back. Also, the render also features a stylus cut-out where the S Pen will be stored. We are also expecting a revised version of the S Pen.
Hardware specifications are sketchy, but the Note 8 is slated to come with the similar SD 835/Exynos 8895 chipset which was present in the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus. RAM may be bumped up to 6GB, similar to the Korean variant of the S8. The cameras are slated to feature 12-megapixel resolution, while battery will be a 3300mAh unit with fast charging and wireless charging.
The Galaxy Note 8 is projected to launch in the second half of September, most likely a few weeks after the iPhone 8. With sales to begin shortly after that, probably early October could be the time for the Galaxy Note 8.
