Samsung Galaxy Note 8 benchmarked by GFXBench
The version tested is not the one you'll find in the states since it was powered by the Exynos 8995 chipset. That means that the device benchmarked carried an octa-core 2.3GHz CPU with the ARM Mali-G71 GPU. In the states, the Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC with an octa-core CPU, and the Adreno 540 GPU. Both models feature 6GB of RAM inside, along with 64GB of native storage. Even though we expect to see a dual-camera setup on the back of the phablet, the listing shows just a single 12MP camera in back with an 8MP front-facing selfie snapper.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a giant microscope focused on it due to last year's recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Thanks to faulty batteries, the latter had a propensity to explode. At the time, the Galaxy Note 7 was on the way to becoming one of the most popular handsets ever produced by the manufacturer. Samsung is hoping that the Galaxy Note 8 makes everyone forget all about last year's fiasco, and it all starts for real next Wednesday.
