Final Galaxy Note 8 specifications detailed

We’ve known for a while now that the Galaxy Note 8 isn’t really going to push the envelope on specs. That has always been the case. The Note flagships have almost always had specs similar to the Galaxy S flagships released earlier in the year with just one or two major differences.

The famous Twitter leakster @evleaks has detailed what he claims to be the “final” Galaxy Note 8 specs today. As expected, there are no surprises, as far as the core components are concerned.

Touting physical dimensions of 162.5mm x 74.6mm with an 8.5mm thickness, the Galaxy Note 8 is not going to feel much larger than the Galaxy S8+.

It will feature a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED 1440×2960 pixel resolution display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The corners of the handset will be squared off in true Note fashion. The Galaxy Note 8 will have IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.

Like the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 8895 processor. The US-bound variants will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. The first major change with the new flagship phablet is that it will have 6GB of RAM compared to the Galaxy S8’s 4GB. It retains 64GB as the standard storage option.

The Galaxy Note 8 will be Samsung’s first flagship smartphone to feature a dual camera. Both rear cameras have 12-megapixel sensors. The primary wide-angle sensor has f/1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus. The telephoto lens has f/2.4 aperture with 2x optical zoom. Both lenses feature optical image stabilization. The 8-megapixel front camera gets a f/1.7 autofocus lens.

The battery will be slightly smaller than the Galaxy S8+’s 3,500mAh cell. The Galaxy Note 8 is said to feature a fast-charging 3,300mAh battery with support for wireless charging.

Due to be unveiled on August 23, the Galaxy Note 8 will ship in Midnight Black and Maple Gold initially and later in Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue. Looks like Samsung hasn’t learned that it’s better for it to release all color options at launch.

As far as the price is concerned, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to cost around €1,000 in Europe when it starts shipping next month.

I think that what these specs tell us is that we can pretty much determine the specs of a Note device from the specs of the S device that came before it. Ever since the Galaxy S6 we constantly get our hopes up for a meaningful upgrade to the Note and every year we are disappointed. Meaningful upgrades are exclusive to the S line. When they announced the S8 I was 99% sure we will get the same design (including the FP sensor), same chipset, same resolution with the Note, even though many predicted a Snapdragon 836, 4K , FP… Read more »

Despite there 8-Point Battery Safety Check, Samsung is still afraid to putt larger battery in Note 8. Watta Confidence and Still same poor tactics of launching different color every single month, even that not in all countries. One month US got Blue variant, 2nd month Europe Got Silver thn 3rd month US will get Silver while UK gets one of these in 4th month n Rest of the world will wait until 9 months, like they are expecting child.. by that time New flagship is Due. and During this all pregnancy period, samsung will launch all other shit A1, B2,… Read more »

“It retains 64GB as the standard storage option.” –> Why Samsung, WHY ?? As usual, the larger storage version is supposed to be released “later”, but in reality will never come 🙁

Disappointed by the camera, I thought they held off the dual camera for something amazing, still hoping it will but by these specs, I am not too sad that I didn’t wait for it. Though, I still want an S Pen lol.
Forever hoping Samsung will make slow motion video at 1080p like every other flagship device out there! 720p or a 2K+ display just looks blurry!

Samsung better give a reason for this price.

Based on spec it’s not that surprising at all, a slightly better S8+ with dual camera like the iphone with added OIS for both camera and spen, other then that same as S8+ with smaller battery. Colours and storage option depend on market yet again which is sucks. Early launch come with Android 7.1.1/7.1.2 yet Android O 8.0 is just around the corner and the endless wait begin for 8.0 upgrade.

You expect them to release the phone with a software version that hasn’t yet been released by Google?

I think the Note 5 is a really nice phone. The only downside in my estimation is the limited 64gb storage and lack of microSD support.

Can’t wait to get mine but I guess I’ll have to settle for black cause I’m sure Best Buy will gobble up the blue variant in the US as an exclusive which means us TMobile customers are shut out unless we’re willing to cough up a ton out of pocket for an unlocked model. All because Samsung won’t release all colors at the same time.

No thanks, not interested… It’s just too long for me and my pockets. I hope Note 9 does not measure 175 mm long.

Using the regular S8 now. My last true Note was the Note 4. Still the best “Note” ever made. But not saying the best “phone” though.

The “best Note” ever made was the Note 7. I still use my daily. Looks great, has a great feel, it’s fast, and fits great in my hand and pocket. The Note 4 in my pocket is very uncomfortable. The Note 7 in my pocket is never an issue.

I still have my AT&T Note 7 and like pretty much everything about it except for the lag. The phone is lagtastic. It was and has been right out of the box. I remember returning about 5 or so before I settled on the current one.

Will be getting the Note 8 but Samsung really needs to work on their software. I’m getting tired of the performance issues in every single Samsung phone I’ve ever used.

If not for the superior functionality and S Pen I’d opt for a different OEM phone.

I too take the view that the note 4 was the best note and the Pinnacle of the original note concept , not perfect but the 4 got a lot right . Out of all my phones including the S8+ , despite the note 4 being old and slow by today’s standards , I still find myself using my old note with it’s big flat screen and chubby dimensions which makes it easier to hang onto and not slippery like a fish , Which to be honest is a common failing with a lot of the pretty flagships off today.… Read more »

Just what I thought, 3300 mAh. Hope everything is optimized!
