"Final" Samsung Galaxy Note 8 specs allegedly revealed

Shortly after seeing renders that (most likely) show the final design of Samsung's unannounced Galaxy Note 8, we now have a list of alleged "final specs" of the handset. Revealed by Venture Beat, this specs list doesn't really surprise us, as it's in line with most of the details we've already heard about the Note 8.

Without further ado, here are the Galaxy Note 8's specs at a glance:

  • Size: 162.5 x 74.6 x 8.5 mm (a tad larger and thicker than the Galaxy S8+)
  • IP68-certified for dust and water resistance (similar to the Galaxy S8 series)
  • Display: 6.3 inches Super AMOLED, dual curve, 1440 x 2960 pixels, 18.5:9 aspect ratio
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (US model), Samsung Exynos 8895 (international model)
  • 6 GB of RAM
  • 64 GB of internal memory
  • microSD card support 
  • Rear camera: Dual 12 MP with optical image stabilization and 2x optical zoom 
  • Front-facing camera: 8 MP with autofocus 
  • USB Type-C
  • 3300 mAh battery with fast charging, wireless charging 

Of course, just like all Galaxy Note smartphones before it, the Note 8 will feature an S Pen stylus. While there are no particular details about it, we're assuming that Samsung has improved the new S Pen over previous versions.

Reportedly, at launch, the Galaxy Note 8 will be available in only two color variants: Midnight Black and Maple Gold. Later, Samsung should release other two models: Deep Sea Blue, and Orchid Grey. The new Galaxy Note may cost almost $1,000 unlocked.

Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23. Are you waiting for it?

Hoping the performance of this is at least as good as Pixel in real world usage. I want that constant 60 FPS while scrolling/doing whatever on the device. I'm quite sensitive to the discrepancies between devices performance cause it literally feels like the Pixel has a 835 already and the S8 has a S821 only. Other than that, this is looking to be the really the best device of the year already. Please have some form of stereo speaker integration too please and this would literally be perfect in my eyes

Same here mike. But be careful, there are a lot of sensitive folk around here that will think you are bashing the device because you mention FPS drops lol. May have to wait for the Pixel 2 for very strong real world performance.

Few things wrong: Tall narrow Tv remote weird aspect ration 3200mah is crap, instead 4000Mah Upgraded E8896 8gb Ram to battle the op5 No Xenon flash 12mp front camera Updated 8 way super scaler cpu with 3x more cache memory

Everything u claim is BS or your personal preference. Whats so great about Xenon Flash? Nothing. Its just brighter. We don't need brighter, we only need bright enough. Most peopel take photos in sufficient light. If you need brightyer, than you need a real camera not a phone. Why do you need 8GB of ram for apps that use less than 512k? I think 6GB is enough and already far to much. But should help with multi-tasking. What you are describing is a PC, not a phone. a phone doesn't need XEON level cache for such tiny apps. Why dopn't yopu build the phone you want. It isnt hard. All you have to do is buy the parts, you can fine a company to cut a single PCB and mount everything and connect it for you and you're done. Oh and it will cost you 3x times what the Note 8 will cost too. Why do you need a 12MP selfie camera. Flip the phone around and use the back camera. Problem solved. Your very first sentence is perfect. "Few things wrong". First, there is something really wrong with YOU! If you want a 4000mah battery, but a battery case or a external battery of some kind. If you use a phone so much that you actually need 4000Mah, which base on the math would only give you an extra hour of usage, that means you have no life and you need to leave social media alone and get out the basement and actually be social with real people and get a girlfriend or a dog or some type of hobby.

You're alright bud? Be careful you don't burst a vessel there.

A Xenon can be VERY beneficial because it is not only brighter, (longer range), but ACTION STOPPING short. And an external battery case is unacceptable unless it also has a belt-clip sized to fit it. I have to be honest, I want to be able to spend 8hrs/day on internet and want a battery sufficient to allow that. We had heard it had 3X optical zoom, so 2X is a disappointment. But my absolute minimum requirement is a FRONT-facing SPEAKER. And I would like a RINGER loud enough to hear from the other side of a house.

Why are you telling people wha to they should want in a phone? Who are you to be making these decisions for people? Next you going to tell people that they don't need to buy an iPhone because Android is better.

Cant fit 12MP inside this tiny bezel... Xenon flash requires space, way more....

This dumbass! So now that your predictions of the phone are wrong you have to come up with idiotic expectations. SMH.

XZP can stay at 60fps .. I doubt N8 will. Watch Erica Griffin on youtube when she compares XZP , s8 and G6. She explains this stuff

60 fps is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Videos are recorded at 30FPS. Static images don't need to move at an accelerated rate unless its a high definition game. Even games are not developed to move at 60FPS all the time. Example, I play SimCity 5 on occasion. I can say that when anything is below 55FPS, some movements look terrible. But you can see in the game, all moving elements are not done at 60FPS. No phone or PC on the planet sustains a 60FPS rate. That' why his dumb ass would need 4000Mah because if you ran everything at 60FPS, the phone would die in 4 hours. What he is asking for is dumb and you backing ti up is dumb. Erica isnt that smart. She goes and Goggle info and presents it to you. You can easily go an look it up yourself. Even in Windows, DirectX does not move all apps or games at 60FPS, because it would create a huge amount of heat and if you don't have the properly cooling would kill your GPU and CPU.

I'll take the words of an expert like Erica Griffin over a butthurt lifeless troll like you. You are nothing compared to her.

Erica Griffin is entertaining, but she's hardly an expert. I'm not talking either side here, I don't even know what you two are arguing about, I just saw her name as I skimmed. Erica is just someone who downloaded some benchmark software. She's been wrong plenty of times because she lacks the deep knowledge of the subject.

Nice try. Erica is very smart and she's well respected in the tech community.

62. mikehunta727 unregistered

Erica is very smart and techie doesn't know what he is talking about here at all. What else is new

60. mikehunta727 unregistered

Dude wtf? There are plenty of PC'S that can pLay well past 60 FPS. I have aRX 480 and can play games at near 100 FPS at 1080p on a 144 hz monitor. There is a big difference going from 60 to 75 hz alone, and even a bigger difference past that. New iPad renders most things at 120 FPS, which feels so much more smoother than anything on Android at the moment My 7 Plus runs many games at a constant 60 FPS too lol.... You have absolutely no clue what your even saying. Many phones and pc's can easily go past 60 FPS

Sharp has been making 120Hz phones since 2015http://www.sharp.co.jp/products/aquos-xx2/display.html But yea, the 120Hz Sharp phones and new iPad Pro are on another even compared to the iPhone 7 and Pixel

Erica has more knowledge about tech than you ever will. You're just mad because she exposed the S8 as being an imperfect device. $800 and it has lag right off the bat?

What you're asking for is done by no phone ever. So skip any phone until forever!

Well here is my take on Note8: 1. If Samsung don't apply NEW real feature to the Dual-Camera, this fugly useless dual-camera should not be on Note 8. (hope will not be) 2. 3300 battery is not good enough(hope it will be more), even if battery management is much better. 3. Still hope Samsung will make Note8 version with removeable back and IR. I could, and I would pay $200 extra for such version (especially if the back is the ''leather'' one). Over those $1 000

I'm really curious on why you so much hate dual-cameras, man. Do you have a design for dual cameras which isn't fugly?

64. mikehunta727 unregistered

Actually, many devices do this quite well. The Pixel, iPhone, 3 year old Nexus 6 with S805 Is still smoother, G6, and others actually do a noticeably better job than any Samsung device does. Achieving a stable 60 FPS is not hard but for Samsung only

He's a dumbass and a liar. He can't even write and read properly and let alone picks on others when they make a mistake. The irony and hypocrite flame bait troll he is. You've slammed and bashed him also kicked has i@r$e so many times. Like you said he's got a huge big head, look closely at his picture his head looks like an egg. Lol.

I doubt it will have 60 FPS due to it using and 835 and Kryo ( that's what it called right?) it has a lot of pixels to move and from having played with the Exynos and the SD variant SoCs it seem the Exynos could possible attain that as it is always the better performing SoC but its LTE modem would be the only draw back in terms of connectivity in the us. I believe the s pen performance will improve that it will be very very close near real time. And yes I agree with you if Samsung were to include stereo speaker setup on the device then it would be almost perfect in my opinion

Don't expect any difference from an s8 as it's still touchwizz with an even heavier feature set of the s pen thrown in. If you're looking smoothness I'd say wait for pixel 2 or upcoming sony device. Imo.
