Samsung Galaxy Note 8, everything we know so far
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the newest addition of the Note series. Now a days, it is becoming more and more difficult to keep the secrets before launching a new product in the tech industry. As because they have a huge number of fan followings, so the rumors often reach to the sky. Moreover, there is always this idea that perhaps a convenient filtering will serve to fuel hype. But the truth is that as we approach the launch of certain devices rumors and leaks are shooting and is a good time to collect everything we know of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Since in June we began to know some details as the price. We have been observing possible leaks on features and design until in fact recently. The well-known filtering Evan Blass (Evleaks) released one of his bombs (with quite good timing,). The features about the front, the battery and even the measurements are already roaming around the net. So, we do a compilation of facts about what we expect to see in a few weeks.

If the good works to stay (but also stay the regular)
The front of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 + has taken many good reviews (and the fascination of who writes after having tried) and rightly: a fusion of sobriety in design with a use of the front by the screen of 83.6% , and moving the fingerprint reader to the back. And if something goes well then it’s better to keep, they must have considered. Because according to Evleaks, front structure will remain the same in the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Starting from here, are two things to talk about: The screen and the button transfer. As for the first, apparently it will be a super AMOLED screen with ratio 18.5:9 and 2,960 x 1,440 pixels resolution. Those attributes are less than their cousins, but 6.3 inches. screen which is 0.1 inch more than the larger Galaxy S8 (and 0.6 more than the Note 7) embedded in a chassis of 162.5 x 74.6 millimeters and 8.5 millimeters thick.
The curve was reaffirmed as a sine qua non condition in terms of the high range of Koreans when we saw that there was no trace of flat version in the S8. Apparently, in Note 8 also this feature is identical. It will be missing to see if TouchWiz brings some novelty in terms of functions with respect to the existing. But the brand of the house also be maintained in the Samsung S-Pen.
The Note 8 would include a 6.3 inch super AMOLED screen and the fingerprint reader in the same position as the Galaxy S8:
The not so positive part of the S8 was the location of the fingerprint sensor. It shares the site with the camera and not being anything intuitive and comfortable as discussed in the analysis of Enlazábamos before. That would be repeat in the Note 8, taking into account the highest height. Therefore, it has to cover greater distance by the finger that unlocks, seeing that there is also everything (camera (s), flash, sensors and reader) within a black frame unlike S8 (and aesthetically something less atra Ctivo).
Power to tread on the heels of the competition
If we leave aside the superficial to focus on what will move the next flagship of Samsung, we will see that there will be no exception than the usual trend of releasing two versions for different countries by the manufacturer. The bet would be the same as we have seen in its predecessors, IE version with the home processor Exynos 8895 and with the Snapdragon 835.
Accompanying the SoC there will be 6 GB of RAM memory and 64 GB of storage memory with the possibility to extend with MicroSD card. The minimum of RAM would be out of time the 4 GB that we saw in the previous (although the S8 + had version with 6 GB) as well. But, remaining at the height of the OnePlus 5 among others, although this also exists already with 8 GB.
The option of 64 GB and the 6 GB would not be the only available option, Although the availability would depend on the geography as it happens with the processor.
It does not seem that the option of 64 GB and the 6 GB is the only one that will exist. But in case of the processor the availability would depend on geography. The version with 256 GB of internal memory would be available in Korea only and there would be a special version with 8 GB of RAM (called the “Emperor”).
There, would be a battery of 3,300 mah, which is somewhat below the S8 + (3,500 mah). Although perhaps the attention here is more in a good design and manufacture than in the milliamps/hour precedents. But it is not too encouraging that the number is inferior when we talk about something that creates more value in terms of the expected autonomy.
The S-Pen, also claims excellence of this terminal. Seems like it has also renewals at the phase of new functions. Example of this are the translation of complete phrases or the conversion of different currencies, This will take place without commenting on the design or on its insertion in the terminal.
Two eyes see more than two: they “confirm” suspicions
At the time that the double camera was based as a trend with some manufacturers such as LG and Huawei and after Apple that caught attention with its application of the portrait mode, came the top of the range of Samsung 2017 with a single sensor on its back.
Something strange, while the manufacturer later published in the form of tweet just saying that the double rear camera was something they were working on and the looks revealed in a premiere with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
The leaks “confirm” this idea, which would respond to two possible factors and strategies. On one hand they have had more time to observe (to the competition) and to act, as well as to improve the operation or the possibility of installing newer and more powerful sensors. And on the other there is an important claim beyond the S-Pen for a phone.
Apparently it will be two sensors of 12 megapixel Isosceles Dual, with a lens with aperture f/1.7 and wide-angle and another second lens, Telephoto x 2, with aperture f/2.4, both with optical image stabilization. A configuration similar to the one we saw on Apple’s IPhone 7 Plus that makes shooting our imagination and ramblings to a possible portrait mode.
On the other hand, the front chamber has also leaked data, talking about a 8 megapixel sensor with auto focus and aperture f/1.7 **. There is no update about the app yet, but there are expectations that there will be many changes and will keep the options we already saw in the previous terminals. Such as, shooting modes and options “beauty” and masks for the front.
The smartphone of the 1,000 euros
It seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be available in three colors: Blue (Deep Sea blue), grey (Orchid grey) and black (we do not know the commercial name) . The price will be around 1,000 euros for the European market and its sale would be in September. It has already presented later than last year and approaching a bit more to the launch of one of its rivals, Apple’s new phone.
On this in Sammobile they talked about the start of the sale on September 15th. So, the reserve period would be somewhat shorter than in the previous version of the Note, being this one from the 1st to the 10th of September.
The date of the presentation was aimed at this same month and before the IFA 2017, specifically on August 23 in new York. We will keep an eye on what you are saying about the brand, waiting for confirmation or announcement of the event in particular.
