Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Latest News & Update: Next Phablet Will Not Hold Back On Ambitious Power Specs

Apr 11, 2017 04:04 AM EDT

Samsung has not given up on its Galaxy Note series and most are eager to see how the Korean giant will bounce back. With the Samsung Galaxy S8 now out, most are under the impression that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will improve on the Plus variant.

The first thing that comes to mind is the screen size of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. With a 6.2-inch curved display, such may be the baseline on the display size of the said phablet at the least. Could it grow larger by as much as 7-inches? For now, that could be crazy but nevertheless possible.

The Korea Herald believes that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have a slightly bigger OLED display and may even include an embedded fingerprint scanner. That would be the signal of a new technology, hopefully, something that will not be a cause for delay. But then again, Samsung delayed the Samsung Galaxy S series and the whole thing paid off.

Aside from the display and fingerprint scanner technology, most want to know the chipset it will come with. The belief is that it will not be lower than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, likely backed by at least 6 GB of RAM. There could be added biometric security features as well. The iris scanner could still be up or perhaps ramped up with a possible face-recognition feature.

Aesthetically, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S8. A leaked photo seems to indicate that, as pointed out by Know Your Mobile. Pricing is still a mystery but the curious thing about it is the rumored release date. If it does come out by the third quarter, it will have to deal with Apple’s iPhone 8. The Cupertino company is reportedly having issued with the new technology so that could buy Samsung some time.
