Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phablet is all set to be launched later today in New York City. The launch event will be live streamed and it is scheduled to happen 8.30pm IST. However, this doesn’t stop the leaks coming out. Yes, just hours before the official announcement, the Galaxy Note 8 has now been leaked in Orchid Gray, which is one of the many expected colors of the smartphone.
As you can see from the image embedded below, the final design is clearly visible. The front of the smartphone sports the Infinity display, whereas, at the back, you can see the dual camera module. The infinity display on the front looks very similar to the one spotted on the Galaxy S8 smartphone which was launched earlier this year. Do make a note that we don’t know if they will call this as “Infinity display” as well. Now, coming to the back, the fingerprint scanner also sits beside the camera module, which is again not the ideal placement.
Overall, the design resembles that of the Galaxy S8 is many ways, but we are sure the additional features such as the dual camera module and the S Pen will add to the user experience. Now, talking about the specs of the smartphone, the display on the front is expected to a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960. Internally, it looks like it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. The international variant will be powered by the Exynos 8895 SoC. The RAM will, however, be the same across all the variants and it has been reported that we will see 6GB RAM in this smartphone along with 64GB of native internal storage.
There are a few rumors which tell us that the smartphone will also be offered in 256GB storage variant, however, the cost of that particular variant could be significantly higher than the base variant. In terms of the camera, the Dual camera setup is expected to be implemented better than any other smartphone out there in the market. Earlier, we had reported about the marketing booklet being leaked, which gave out a lot about the smartphone’s camera. With all that said, we hope this will have a great camera. If you are interested to learn more about the smartphone, then we suggest you stay tuned to PhoneRadar, as we will update more on this once the device goes official later this evening.
