What’s more is that the Galaxy Note 8 will be the most expensive phone from Samsung. Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to retail for $900 or approximately PHP 45, 000.
Galaxy Note 8 is also rumored to be first Samsung handset that will have a dual rear camera feature. It will also sport a 6.3-inch Infinity display which is nearly the same size as the Galaxy S8+. Source said the Note8 will be available at launch in shades of black, blue, and gold
Rumored Specs: What we know for now
Samsung aims to create a huge difference between the Note line and the S-series. Galaxy Note 8 will have an expansive 6.3-inch Infinity display screen the largest among Samsung handsets. Furthermore, Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to sport a Snapdragon 835 (or Exynos) processor, 6 GB RAM, and the S Pen with updated functionality.
Note 8’s rumored dual rear camera will each sport a 12-megapixel sensor and an independent optical image stabilization. Unlike other flagships, the lenses of the Note 8 are said to be positioned horizontally.
The S Pen will have an instant access to sentence-input translation and currency conversion. The Always-On Display can now supposedly showcase handwritten notes. The fingerprint scanner is still located at the back of the phone, similar to that of the Galaxy S8. In terms of battery, the latest Note handset will have a 3,300 mAh battery. This battery has a lower capacity than that of Note 7, Note 8’s predecessor. However, this move might be Samsung’s answer to the problems of battery explosion with the Note 7. This could also be the fulfillment of D.J Koh, Samsung’s Mobile Chief, “bring back a better, safer and very innovative Note 8.”
Samsung is yet to confirm the rumors about Note 8’s specs but a few creative individuals have already created their own concept renders. Here’s one by Concept Creator:
