Samsung Galaxy Note8 Will Run On Android 7.1.1 Nougat, Reveals Database

Jun 20, 2017 03:56 PM EDT

Samsung Galaxy Note8 leaks are coming one after another hinting the imminent launch of flagship phablet. Android Nougat update, based on Android 7.0, continues to hit the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy Tab devices around the world. The latest software is also hitting mid-range devices with more Galaxy Nougat updates planned for the summer.

Samsung is presently testing Samsung Galaxy Note8 prototypes running Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This has been got to know through the HTML5Test database, where a Samsung device with model number SM-N950F is now featured. This is extensively believed to be the Note8's model number.

Samsung Galaxy Note8 is also seen running on the Internet 5.2 web browser. The leaked device, according to database, scored 488 out of a total of 555 points in the said test.

Samsung might be testing the Samsung Galaxy Note8 (with its official model number SM-N950F) before its official launch. HTML5Test is one of the renowned benchmarks which are available for checking web browsing performance. The rumored smartphone is said to feature the same design language as that of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, albeit with an S Pen, as reported by Sammobile.

However, this doesn't guarantee that Android 7.1.1 Nougat will be the software that powers the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note8 but it certainly doesn't hurt the odds. So for better or worse, it seems like the Galaxy Note8 will arrive with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board. However, GSM Arena assumes that the update to Android 8 O will follow within a few months of its launch.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is said to feature a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, Dual 12MP+13MP cameras with 3x optical zoom, an 8-megapixel secondary camera. The upcoming device is tipped to either boast an Exynos 8895 processor or a Snapdragon 836 SoC. The device will reportedly miss out on an on-screen fingerprint reader. Samsung had started the firmware development for the device back in April.
