Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leaks continue as spec details surface


Now we know what the Galaxy Note 8 will probably look like when it’s unveiled on August 23rd, but what kind of specs will it include? That question can now be answered, too.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have a 6.3-inch 2960×1440 Super AMOLED display, says VentureBeat, along with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio that’ll give it a tall display. The Note 8 is also expected to include an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for all of your selfie needs.

The back of the Note 8 is said to be home to two 12-megapixel cameras, both of which offer optical image stabilization. One is a wide angle lens with an f/1.7 aperture, while the other is a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and an f/2.4 aperture. To the right of those cameras is a fingerprint reader.

The Note 8’s body reportedly measures 162.5mm x 74.6mm x 8.5mm. Inside that body lives a Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB of RAM (up from 4GB in the Galaxy S8), 64GB of storage, and a microSD slot. Rounding things out is a 3300mAh battery, USB-C port, and wireless charging.

While still unofficial, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see these specs appear in the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung’s Galaxy Note phones are typically premium devices with very high-end specs, and it sounds like the Note 8 will be no different. Now we just have to wait a few weeks to officially meet the Galaxy Note 8 and get the thing in our hands.

  • Frankwhitess

    Guys.. This phone is ridiculously Big….. Am like 0.6 away from a tablet..

    • Sharti24

      Bigger is better! Remember the samsung mega?

    • Crackers luv M3TH

      Is a tablet using edge and 18:9 displays?

  • JayBEE

    Yeah, yeah… just let us know what amends you will be making to the former Note 7 owners…

    • Peter Smith

      Note Fan Edition!!!

      • JayBEE

        lol! Actually that would be nice.

    • AA-Ron

      I concur, what are we getting for the note 7 recall recall

    • g2a5b0e

      Entitled much? Samsung already gave a credit to everyone who returned their device. You won’t get anything else.

      • JayBEE

        Obviously, you obviously did not sit in on the conference calls Samsung held after those credits were disbursed.

        • g2a5b0e

          I have no idea what you mean by that, but as someone who returned his Note 7, got all of his money back, & a credit, I wouldn’t expect Samsung to do anything else for me. It would be nice if they did, but I’m not holding my breath. You expect them to reimburse you further for your emotional damages too? Let’s go ahead & bookmark this to see who’s right later. I will gladly eat crow if I’m wrong about this.

    • George Salcedo

      I’m just gonna wait for the 18 by 9 HTC U11 version.

  • Philip

    Two cameras at the back? It will cost $1000 for a phone? Serious?

    • Crackers luv M3TH

      iPhone 8 is rumored to cost $1200

      • Ben

        I think these manufacturers are messing with us. Playing tit for tat with each other to see who can charge their customers the most. But people are still willing to pay these prices, so manufacturers don’t bear the blame entirely.

        • Mike

          To be fair the S8 is highest cost phone to produced.

        • Iphart

          And there is a glut of it out there right now.

      • JBLmobileG1

        These phone prices are getting WAY outta hand. If they want to charge prices like this they really need to just release a new phone model every few years and not once a year (sometimes even sooner). They need to release them like they due Video Game Consoles… not like Cars.

  • bkat11

    FCC filing shows no Band 71 support

    • Crackers luv M3TH

      T-Mobile stated that Samsung was releasing a Band 71 phone this year maybe it can be enabled thru a update.

      • bkat11

        Possible…but highly unlikely….

      • JayBEE

        Hopefully I’m wrong but I would not be surprised if they added this to a phone (low end) no one wanted so they could say they did.

        • Mike

          Yeah I wouldn’t be surprised if it comes to a budget phone first. No band 71 isn’t a deal breaker for me though I stay in a major city so my service is great!

  • kev2684

    6.3 inch vs Galaxy S8+ 6.1 inch display… not enough distinction there. Make it a true phablet at 7.2″. Come on Sammy, I dare you.


    Free tablet on us promo going on..

  • Sharti24

    So Band 71 or not? Kinda important for some people

  • Sam_Austin

    I just want to know when it will ship and what the freebie promotion will be for pre-ordering.

  • Billy_Boy2019

    I really really really hope John Legere has something lined up for those who had to return our Note 7’s! Come thru John Legere
