That Samsung has achieved the targeted initial success with its flagship devices Galaxy S8 and S8+ is an open secret now. But how far has this success helped it heal the wound of the Note 7 disaster can only be answered when its upcoming Note 8 device also generates S8 like reception. With the S8 fever still running high, the compass of leaks has not fully turned towards Note 8. But now and then we do get to hear about it. A similar opportunity has arrived with a new leak about Galaxy Note 8 revealing some of its specifications.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has spilled a few beans about the upcoming Samsung Note device, cites 9to5Google. As per the analyst, Note 8 will sport dual rear cameras, one with 12 MP resolution wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiodes and the other with a 13 MP resolution featuring telephoto CIS, plus dual 6P lenses and dual OIS. Not only this, he claims that the cameras will give better performance than even Apple iPhone 7 Plus and could be at par with upcoming iPhone 8 rear cameras. On top of that, the Note 8 cameras will be capable of 3x optical zoom.
As per the analyst, Galaxy Note 8’s screen will be 6.4-inch with QHD+ OLED display powered by either Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 processor or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, depending on the market where the phone is released. Samsung will continue with the rear fingerprint scanner placement, as seen on S8, even with Note 8, Kuo claims.
Based on past leaks, we know that Note 8 will pack in 6GB RAM and run Android 7.1.2 Nougat with TouchWiz. The battery on board will be 3,600 mAh battery with fast charging. Other reported features include IP 68 rating, wireless charging and of course a S-Pen Stylus.
If indeed Galaxy Note 8 brings on board all the above mentioned features, it goes without saying that Samsung stands in good stead to undo the Note 7 fiasco and deliver a successful successor.
