Samsung Galaxy Note 8 benchmarked by GFXBench

It's hard to believe that a week from tomorrow, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 unveiling will be over and Samsung will have officially introduced its high-end phablet. Today, the Galaxy Note 8 made an appearance on GFXBench which gives us a good idea what the specs are going to be like on the device when it becomes official next week. According to GFXBench, the Galaxy Note 8 will come with a 6.4-inch screen carrying a maximum resolution of 1440 x 2960 (QHD+). By default, the phone comes out of the box with a 1080 x 2220 FHD+ resolution and this can be changed at the discretion of the phablet's owner.

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.
