Leaked Galaxy Note 8 brochure confirms major details

Samsung is going to officially unveil the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23. We’ve already seen many leaked images and renders of this smartphone. There have also been countless reports detailing the specifications and features it’s likely going to have.

The leaks won’t stop until the handset is officially announced so it’s not surprising to see something new pop up. The folks at Ausdroid have received a leaked sales brochure for the Galaxy Note 8 which confirms some major details about the handset.

The leaked Galaxy Note 8 brochure confirms that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to feature a 6.3-inch QHD+ Infinity Display with S Pen support. It’s also going to feature an iris scanner and wireless charging. The Galaxy Note 8 will be IP68 dust and water resistant.

The Galaxy Note 8’s dual camera will have f/1.7 lenses with support for 2x optical zoom and Optical Image Stabilization. Since this is a Note device after all, it will be very easy to take notes, the Screen-off Memo feature will be onboard to jot down notes with the stylus even when the screen is off.

Samsung is going to offer it in Midnight Black and Maple Gold colors, as far as the Australian market is concerned. The new Deep Sea Blue color option may be limited to select markets. The brochure doesn’t reveal any pricing information for the Galaxy Note 8.

I am sorry but I am very disappointed with this. this phone is said to cost more than $1000. There is no stand out feature, except the S Pen which doesn’t look like it does anything new since the Note5. Really was hoping for a full pressure sensitive display. I have never owned a Note device, and wanted to join the upgrade programme on the Note7. If given the option to upgrade to the Note8, I still might hold for the 9. Seems to have a 4K display though which is cool! – “Our highest resolution display” – it cannot… Read more »

7- 8 inch phones in the past? As far as I can remember the biggest Samsung has released is the Mega with 6.3 inches

Wow, even Samsung are calling two fixed-focal lenses an “optical zoom”. I guess I can now sell off my old SLR primes, two at a time, and call them a zoom lens?

Or, you know, you can not compare full blown cameras with tiny sensors inside very thin phones. Also… Marketing. People who know, wont fall for it. People that don;t will buy it anyway for the great design and photo quality

Actually you’d wonder what discussions you can hear from average Joes, who take that PR stuff literally so far that they mean professional cameras are as good as their phones … or even worse, since they don’t take snapshots in 4k with a gazillion megapixels.
I have a 8MP Canon which cost me roughly 100$ when it came out 10 years ago … and it still is miles ahead of phone cameras … alone through its optical components.

It’s just like 4k displays on phones or diet menu at McDonalds …

Canon Powershot S80(8MP) and even the Powershot G5(5MP) took seriously good photos back then…
but times have changed..and lazy photography has taken over…and it is becoming almost universal…but creativity has no boundaries..in terms of future phones and also in terms of human potential of human creativity….and so… who knows what future humans will dream up next…even as early as tomorrow or next year….

I know a photographer who is trying to make it professionally, they have bought a high end DSLR with that changing massive lens etc. and comparing the pics taken on the camera and my S6 edge+ at the time. Yes the professional one looked better but at the same time you can really tell it was taken on a professional camera and I find myself preferring the more life like “inperfect” pics taken on my phone; as in it captures the moment as it is better than a professional one does. I know that could have just been a camera… Read more »

I’m not even talking about professional photography. I am talking about basic holiday photos, where minor inconveniences, like sun from the wrong direction creates glare or too dark photos, or lower light than usual creates pixelated pictures (and by that I mean room photos in the late evening, not night shots – about those I won’t even start …) – where you actually see that the cell itself, since it is so tiny, is actually worthless, and the photos are being processed heavily in SW that they look somewhat “myeah …” in the end. It does not compare. If you… Read more »
