Galaxy Note 8 teaser image arrives alongside final specs 'leak'
Aug 05 2017
One industry official expected that the intentionally delayed debut would help boost expectation for the Galaxy Note 8 and would give the company enough time to manage its supply to prevent any shortage.
Interestingly, the battery of the Galaxy Note 8 seems to be between Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, which come with 3000mAh and 35000mAh batteries respectively.
With a Sept. 15 release date, Samsung will start selling the Galaxy Note 8 before the iPhone 8 hits the market, as new iPhones by Apple usually go on sale at the end of September.
Samsung has been coming out with two flagship phones every year.
Reports also indicate Samsung may begin accepting Galaxy Note 8 preorders as soon as August 25.
AT&T is now running a Samsung promotion, which can save you $500 on a new Samsung TV when you switch to DIRECTV and buy a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus handset on AT&T Next.
It was already looking pretty likely that Samsung would introduce another Galaxy Active device.
While Note 8's screen will be larger than its predecessor, people will look for improvements not only in the display aspect, but in the battery category as well. With 6GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage, the handset will lack the facility of micro-SD card slot.
Moving to the camera and the biggest highlight of Samsung GalaxyNote 8, the phone will come with a dual rear camera of both 12-megapixel primary and secondary sensors.
Noted tipster Evan Blass of VentureBeat has spilled the beans on the final Galaxy Note 8 specifications. Although its normal September launch could be delayed by as much as three months because of supply issues, the new iPhone is expected to have numerous same features as Samsung's new smartphone, including a bezel-free front display. Many are anticipating that the phone will be released prior or later that the Note 8 release.
Late yesterday and early today, mobile tech writer Evan Glass, who has published numerous accurate leaks about other devices in the past, posted several images on Twitter that appear to show front, back, and side views of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (product images, shown above).
