Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is probably one of the awaited phones of the year and it looks like Samsung can’t stop the phone from being exposed to the press before its official launch. THhe phone is important probably because the phone somehow holds the responsibility to keep Samsung as the leading Android phone maker in the market. Galaxy Note 7 had damaged much reputation with its battery disaster.
OnLeaks with 91Mobiles has posted a 360 degree CAD video about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. Most notable change is the horizontal dual camera setup at the back with fingerprint scanner beside the top center at the back. So this may be first dual camera smartphone from Samsung. The back body is of glass and bottom edge has a USB Type-C port, speakers, the S Pen slot, and the 3.5mm jack.
It is quite thicker with 162.4×74.5×8.4mm dimensions as Note 7’s was 153.5×73.9×7.9mm. so it will not squeeze the battery as in Note 7. Note 8 may hold probably a 6.3-inch display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio for 2K resolution. The dual camera setup is expected with two 12-megapixel sensors and independent OIS (optical image stabilization) for each lens. RAM in the phone will be 6GB with Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 SoC (depending on the market).
The volume and Bixby keys are at the left edge. Only The Power key is at the right. The front has a bezel-less display, with all the sensors and earpieces. The phone has a Black color variant, and reports are suggesting that a Blue and Gold variant will come out too. A 3300mAh battery is expected, it will be smaller than the 3500mAh battery on Galaxy S8+. After the explosion fiasco with the Note 7, reducing battery capacity might work positively as it will support fast charging and wireless charging too.
Other features include split-screen multitasking which is now common to all Android 7.0 Phones, pinning notes to the Always-On Display and DeX dock. Report have revealed a supposed launch in late September at a price tag of EUR 999 (roughly Rs. 72,100).
