As the expected launch time of the Galaxy Note 8 is inching closer, the rumour mill has started churning out information about the much anticipated device. While few online reports suggest that the phablet will pack in 6GB of RAM, a new leak hints at an Emperor Edition with 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM.
The upcoming phablet is expected to feature a Star Wars reference attached as well and will likely be available for pre-orders in Australia starting August 25, according to a leaked document from Samsung.
The Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition was first tipped on Weibo by @ice. The post also suggest that the 256GB storage will be offered with 6GB of RAM as well in three colour option – Black, Grey and Blue.
Just like the Galaxy S8 series, the upcoming phablet is expected to sport a curved Super AMOLED display with 2960 x 1440 pixel resolution. The rumours suggest that the Note 8 will boast either a 6.3-inch or a 6.4-inch display. It is expected to have a Snapdragon 835 SoC or the Snapdragon 836 (unannounced) chipset at its heart. The company will also release a model with the Exynos 8895 chip for other markets.
The processor will be backed by either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and will have a dual camera setup in the rear panel. It will house two 13MP sensors with autofocus, f/2.0 aperture, and 1.12µm pixel size.
About the release date, there have been many rumours floating around. Few online reports claim that the phablet will be unveiled at IFA 2017 in Berlin in September, which is highly unlikely since the company has already sent out media invites for its Unpacked event in New York on August 23, teasing the upcoming phablet....
