Samsung Galaxy Note 8 News, Updates: Alleged Press Renders Leaked Anew; Most Likely To Bear Horizontal Camera Setup
Now that the once extremely volatile Note 7 (now Galaxy Note 7 FE) made a comeback in South Korea, Samsung is all set to introduce its successor - the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. New leaks have been making rounds yet again suggesting that most of the previous rumors were spot on about the beast of a phablet.
Leak site SlashLeaks recently posted what could be the final press render of the Galaxy Note 8. However, it only showed the front portion of the handset as it boasts Samsung's Infinity Display. It is also noticeable that the upcoming Note will still be keeping the volume button on the left and the power button to the right.
Compared to its Galaxy S8 cousin, the Galaxy Note 8 has sharper curves making it a squared out version of the former. Moreover, it is said that the phone will be a bit larger than its predecessor as it is believed to be sporting 6.3-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution, according to Forbes.
As opposed to previous leaks with the Galaxy Note 8 having a vertical dual camera orientation, recent spy shots of the device showed a horizontal setup that perfectly fits in the bag with what the phone case maker - Olixar had previously suggested. Per GSM Arena, the phablet is said to boast a 13 and 9-megapixel rear and front-facing shooter respectively with the former having features such as OIS, autofocus, and phase detection.
In addition, it is likely that the Galaxy Note 8 will be getting two iterations with varying storage capacities with the base version getting 64GB while the premium variant will have 128GB. Both models will be getting the same amount of RAM which is 6GB and will be preloaded with Android's 7.1 operating system.
The Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to be made known this August and could be officially released by September. Check out a video about the upcoming handset here:
