Samsung Galaxy Note 8 concept images envision a striking 6.4-inch handset with dual camera setup
Want to get a look at a concept that just might come true? Here's the Galaxy Note 8, envisioned by designer Benjamin Geskin. It looks like a jumbo-sized Galaxy S8 – something that Samsung is very likely to pull off for the Note 8. And it's still beautiful, because it starts with the right foundation.

Benjamin assumes the Note 8 will have a 6.4-inch 4K Infinity Display (18:9 ratio) in addition to an in-screen fingerprint scanner, a dual camera setup on the back, and stereo speakers. Again, highly plausible features that Samsung could very well introduce with the Note 8 in the second half of the year. We're still not sure how Sammy will fit an S-Pen inside a phone that could be so thin, but that's up to its clever designers and engineers to solve.

Another problem they'll have to tackle is the fact that the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2-inch display already, and is probably less expensive. Samsung will have to work hard to differentiate the Note 8 from its flagship phones.

Luis D. There's this mistake in the article on the title of the images "Samsung Galaxy S8 concept images". Please get that corrected.

The Note line is kinda known for having more square edges.

Yes. I was a little dismayed at the Note7's lozenge-like shape; especially in its basic form, uncased. I was reticent in even handling that little bauble for not wanting to put a smudge upon it. My second Note7 was, however, a fine performer. I have, still, the backpack extended battery case for it. When I went to run down the Note7's extended battery before I shipped the smartphone to the collection depot in Texas it took over a day of playing videos to get to 1%.

6GB RAM, 4K display, Bigger battery and S pen will be enough to differentiate s8+ with note 8.

The battery will most likely be smaller and a 4k display would mean terrible battery life.

I would only turn on 4K resolution when using the phone in a VR. That's the whole point of 4K on a phone. But the VR will drain the battery anyway like with any phone. Lol

Dont know why you think the battery would be smaller. Will probably be 3700ish. Cant be the same or less than the S8+.

Being that it's more of a "business class" phone, they can make it a dash thicker and increase the battery easily.

I hope it doesnt come with 4k resolution. Totally pointless to have that many pixels.

but 6g ram, bigger battery, s pen, and dual camera that's also an upgrade from the S8 line in over all optics would be a big winner.

Because the S pen takes up some space.

Note 7 had smaller battery than s7 edge. S pen takes up space inside the phone.

Changing the screen resolution in settings doesn't save much battery. Many tests have debunked that myth.

4k panel will drain much more battery, changing the render resolution won't change the hardware resolution. The screen will still light up all the pixels.

@adi90. The battery will be smaller, did you not see the approach they took with this years S series. Smaller battery, and 4K screen...no. Probably 3600-3700mah max.

"S pen takes up space inside the phone."

Yes, but Samsung could make the Note8 thicker than the S8 Plus to accommodate a bigger battery... There were even rumours of the Note8 featuring a 4,000mAh battery.

You guys think it's so easy to make it thick and pack more battery! I have worked in this industry and know first-hand how hard it is.

All the layout will have to be built around it. Plus what about the extra space it would create above the s-pen slot when thickening the build.

I know you guys say that thickness isn't a major concern. But see, this is a 6.4" phone here. Making it thicker will significantly increase the weight, pocketability and in general operation of the phone. Looking like a brick from 90's doesn't help marketing and product shots too.

Most of the buyers are not nerds like us who want just the best battery life. They care about other aspects more. If the phone lasts a full day, they are content.

The future is efficiency, not thick phones with big batteries.

Having the ability to change the Screen Resolution as we see in S8 from 2k+ to 1080p+ and lower , that won't be a problem with Note 8.

Smaller battery, but my Note 7 got way better overall battery life than the S7 Edge I replaced it with.

Not totally pointless. VR. And you can reduce the resolution when not using it for VR.

the new galaxy devices come with options to lower the resolution , which i would keep mine at the lowest setting

Lowering resolution doesn't increase the battery life. You will get 10 min more battery life by selecting 1080p+ and 20 min more using 720p+ over QHD+ according to Samsung.

Why is it so? Because the screen is still QHD+ and hence all the pixels will still light up. The GPU rendering load will reduce, but that doesn't consume much power in these phones anyway..

The default is set to FHD+ for different reasons, not battery life.

That's due to better software. The S7 edge got that with nougat too.

Difference in resolution barely makes a difference in battery life....

Brink 4K. You can lower th resolution or don't buy it!

Nope. It was better with Marshmallow than the S7 Edge is with Nougat.

128 gigs of built-in storage and expandable memory would do it for me.
