Prominent tech device leaker Evan Blass has shared on VentureBeat the specs to expect from the Samsung Galaxy Note8, after its failed attempt at the Note7:
- IP68-certified handset
- 6.3-inch SuperAMOLED display, the Note8 is barely larger than the S8+
- screen resolution is 1440 x 2960 in a 18.5:9 aspect ratio
- dimensions of 162.5mm x 74.6mm, with an 8.5mm thickness
- powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 system-on-chip globally, but Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 in the U.S. With both chips employing Samsung’s 10nm FinFET fabrication process, performance should be comparable.
- 6GB standard RAM with 64GB of internal storage (and a microSD expansion slot)
- 2 main rear cameras, both featuring 12-megapixel sensors. But the primary, wide-angle one has an f1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus, while the telephoto lens is f2.4 and enables a 2x optical zoom. Both lenses are optically stabilized. The user-facing selfie cam on the front features an eight-megapixel sensor and an f1.7 autofocus lens.
- fast-charging 3300mAh battery recharged either via the USB-C port or wirelessly.
Blass added that the “Note8 will first ship in Midnight Black and Maple Gold followed by Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue. As VentureBeat previously reported, it will cost nearly €1,000 (approx K11950) in Europe when it starts to ship in September.”
