As Tony the Tiger would say, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is
Back in March, while we passed along some information to you about the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 model, we discovered that Sammy had a code name for the Galaxy Note 8. The new version of the phablet was apparently going to be called "Great." That might be appropriate considering that the Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution, and the Infinity Display. The Snapdragon 836 chipset will reportedly be powering the U.S. version of the device, and compared to the Snapdragon 835 SoC, it features a slightly faster clock speed for the octa-core CPU. The Galaxy Note 8 phablet will feature a dual-camera setup with a 12MP wide angle lens, and a 13MP telephoto lens.

According to a tweet sent out yesterday by reliable tipster Evan Blass, the actual code name of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is not "Great, but is "Samsung Gr3at." Either way, it would appear as though Samsung believes that it does have something great to pass along with this phone. The big question is whether or not the handset will feature a fingerprint scanner embedded in the touchscreen, or if the technology is not yet ready for prime time. If the answer is the latter, Samsung might have to rely once again on having the biometric reader positioned on the back of the device, right next door to one of the rear facing cameras.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to be unveiled possibly just before or during the IFA trade show in Berlin. IFA starts on September 1st, and Samsung would love the opportunity to introduce the unit before the new 2017 iPhone models hit the light of day in September

Wonder if it’s actually “6r3at” reference to the 6.3 inch display.

Other than the dual camera and small bump to an 836, it's pretty much an S8 plus with a pen. I'll be getting one and also disappointed no 4k yet for the VR and the fingerprint reader will be on the back. I will have a very good phone, but it won't be great.
