Samsung Galaxy S8 might face an unknown entity in the high-range market as Honor gears up with its Note 8. Both of them have amped up the specifications quite a bit, rendering it an intriguing battle.

Samsung Galaxy S8 did not have a dream beginning as the delicate display has made it extremely difficult for users to handle. However, there are certain features that make it a potent device. On the other hand Honor Note 8 has pulled off a major trick and has few stellar features to make it an exciting prospect.

Honor Note 8 will display a 6.6" QHD curved screen that easily beats the 5.8" QHD Samsung Galaxy S8 display size. The latter has an edge in terms of resolution as it will include Infinity display with 18:9 aspect ratio bordered by thin bezels top to bottom. Android Headlines report that both the devices will house a similar AMOLED display.

Coming to the storage capacity, both the models will be packed with 64GB internal space running on 4GB RAM. Samsung Galaxy S8 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 paired with Adreno 540 GPU, whereas Honor Note 8 will house a supreme HiSilicon Kirin 955 octa-core processor coupled with Mali-T880 MP4.

Distinguishing clearly, GSM Insider shows that Samsung Galaxy S8 is leaps and bounds ahead of Honor Note 8 in terms of camera. The former will house a 12MP rear snapper with phase detection while the latter will come with 13MP dual tone LED flash. However, the front snapper of S8 will see an 8MP sensor with 80-degree wide-angle image up against a meager 5MP Note 8 sensor.

Samsung Galaxy S8 will run on Android 7.0 Nougat giving it an edge over the Android 6.0 Marshmallow of Honor Note 8. The latter although is a clear winner in terms of battery capacity. Note 8 will be packed with 4500mAh battery while S8 will come with a paltry 3000mAh.
