The specifications and design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are pretty much known at this point, it would seem. That’s if we’re to believe the latest leaks and rumours.
I originally thought the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be too big, but at the alleged dimensions of 162.4 x 74.5 x 8.4mm, it’s going to be a similar size to the model above except it’ll be about 10mm taller. I’m not expecting it to feel much different in the hand. Of course, the leaks and rumours could be inaccurate but I doubt it at this point.
It is a slightly thicker phone, but interestingly leaks claim it will have a slightly smaller battery, at 3,300 mAh; I guess Samsung are being extra careful with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but I’m certainly not expecting the battery life to be bad.
The screen size of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is alleged to be 6.3 inches vs 5.7 inches of the previous model.
Americans can expect a Snapdragon 835, and the people here in the UK will likely get a Exynos 8895 chipset version of the phone.
Both should have 6GB of RAM, and there will likely be two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB sizes.
I’d love the larger storage version but I don’t know if I can justify the price difference.
A headphone jack, microSD card slot reader, etc. are all alleged to be there, so there’s nothing particularly bad about the phone from what I can see so far. Some people state the fingerprint scanner is going to be in a bad place, but I like using the iris scanner anyway.
I’ll definitely be pre-ordering one as soon as it’s available. I can’t wait :D.
