For the screen size, it will possibly come in a 5.7 inch screen. However, it is still a rumor. There is also a rumor which says that this new smartphone will offer the larger screen, 6.2 inches. This is the more possible leak. But there are some rumors telling that the bigger leak is also possible with 6.4 inch screen. Whatever the big will be, we are sure that it will feature QHD+OLED display that come with minimum bezels.

It is also possible that Galaxy Note 8 screen will offer “Infinity Display”. This rumor also makes sense to compete with the competitors such as Galaxy S8 or S8 plus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Screen

Samsung may want to maximize the screen-to-body ratio on this new smartphone. So, they will offer the best screen. However, we still do not know whether the leaked of this new smartphone is official or not.

There is one more rumor related to its screen where this smartphone is predicted to come with a foldable screen. It may sound impossible but who knows? Everything is possible by the tech goes more modern and more sophisticated.

Based on the rumor, Samsung will launch 2 foldable phones in this year. So, it may be Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 9. Once again, it is still a rumor.

Besides preparing Galaxy Note 8, Samsung is also preparing their future smartphone named Samsung Galaxy X prototype. However, Galaxy Note 8 is still awaited so much by the customers.

In addition, next year Samsung may introduce Galaxy Note 9 that will come with foldable screen. Besides that, Galaxy Note Edge will also be available with curved screen.

The Design of Samsung Galaxy Note 8

In relation to Samsung Galaxy Note 8 design, it will come with glass as well as metal materials. Even though “Infinity Display” also belongs to the rumors, it is still less possible.

There are many rumors which say that this Galaxy Note 8 will be similar to Galaxy S8 where it comes with a curved glass front & back. However, this new smartphone will offer a high quality camera. For the dimensions, it is predicted to come in 182.4 mm x 74.5 mm x 8.4 mm. For the camera bump, it goes up to 9.5 mm.

We are still unsure about the fixed design but we hope that this smartphone will come out a few weeks or months ahead.

What we can say is that this Galaxy Note 8 will promote new Exynos 8895 for the processor that can improve the performance. Besides, it will also have a small bezel compared to Galaxy S8 and S8 plus. Then, it will not offer any button on the side.

From other news, this new smartphone will features a pressure sensitive screen which brings up some different menus & options. As we know, S8 & S8 plus also have it. The difference is that this smartphone does not have home button.

One of the most interesting rumors is that this Galaxy Note 8 will offer fingerprint sensor. However, until now the company still does not give the sign of launching fingerprint scanner for this smartphone. As we know, S8 and S8 plus have fingerprint scanner at the rear next to camera lens. However, the most ideal placement if it really comes with fingerprint sensor is under the display at the front.

The Camera of Samsung Galaxy Note 8

One of the offers that make this new smartphone interesting is the camera. Samsung will upgrade the camera and this smartphone will have a dual-lens. Besides that, it also offers 3x optical zoom so that it is very good for telephoto. Then, it is also appropriate for wide-angle. Therefore, we can say that its Samsung Galaxy Note 8 camera will be really amazing.

With upgraded camera, Samsung allows you to try more fun things in capturing objects. Same with Galaxy S7, Note 7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S8 & S8 plus, it will also be featured with 12 MP camera. However, we also anticipate the possible differences besides the dual-lens.

Actually, the 12MP camera is designed for wide-angle. So, if you want to perform telephoto, you can use the 13MP camera. If you are interested in 3x optical zoom, you just need to combine them.

Besides that, it also offers 5MP camera for the front. This camera is good enough for taking selfies. Besides that, it can also provide clear video for video calling. Considering the rumors above, we cannot expect more from Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The Battery of Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Because Galaxy Note 8 will come with a wide screen, the battery should also have big capacity. After paying searching the information, we find that this smartphone will use a high quality battery with 3,300 mAh capacity. Actually, Samsung can offer the bigger options, but it is more realistic. However, we can also expect the bigger battery capacity.

As we know, the disappointment of S7 is mainly caused by the battery failure. Now, you do not need to worry because the battery offered for this new smartphone will be safe with more internal tech. It also becomes one of the reasons why Samsung more likely to offer the smaller battery capacity. With the small battery, hopefully it will stay cool better. Anyway, we all hope the best for this smartphone battery.

In addition, it will also offer 2 chipset flavors: Exynos 8895 in the United Kingdom and The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the United States. Anyway, this new smartphone will be better for multitasking.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

Besides that, the internal memory is also very useful. With the spacious storage, you have plenty space for android apps. It is double than the other most Samsung flagships.

Samsung has renamed TouchWiz to “Samsung Experience”. Actually, it is likable. We hope the new OS is better like Android 7.1.1. Even though some people predict that it will come with android O, Android N is more possible to come as its operating system.

Other Features of Samsung Galaxy Note 8

There are still some other speakers that you will find on this new Galaxy Note 8. One of them is a stylus that will come with a speaker.
