We’ve been seeing a lot of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as of late. We’ve seen two press renders and its launch date revealed, but we have yet to receive any confirmation on its specs. You know, until now.
Evan Blass has written a piece over on VentureBeat that details the Note 8 to the fullest. He states the handset will be “barely larger than the [Galaxy] S8+” and measure in at “162.5mm x 74.6mm, with an 8.5mm thickness.” It’ll sport squared-off corners, a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED 2960×1440 18.5:9 display, and an IP68 water/dust resistance certification.
As for internals, the list is as follows:
- Snapdragon 835 (US) or Exynos 8895 SoC (globally)
- 6GB RAM
- 64GB storage (expandable via microSD card)
- Dual 12MP cameras, with one wide-angle f/1.7 dual-pixel autofocus-enabled lens and secondary f/2.4 lens which enables 2x optical zoom
- 8MP f/1.7 selfie camera
- 3300mAh battery
- Wireless charging
- USB-C port
Additionally, the Note 8 will come in Midnight Black, Maple Good, Orchid Grey, and a new Deep Sea Blue which should look pretty stellar. Blass states the phone will cost nearly €1,000 when it launches which translates to almost $1,200 in USD. That’s pretty insane for just a smartphone and is similarly priced to the extreme RED Hydrogen One that just got previewed today.
The Note 8 will be unveiled on August 23rd so stay tuned for much more regarding the handset.
