"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?

i was a samsung fan till samsung galaxy s7 , bit I do not like the new form it has , as someone said it , reminds me a remote control , besides , I don't see the point for the curve edges, most if not all the first thing they do it turn the edges panels off .

sorry Samsung.. 3300 MAH is not enough for that 6+ inches display... lots of people will say great battery life but after 6 months later the battery life will be very bad. Bye Bye Samsung.. As a your fan i am sorry. I think gonna move to Iphone but the problem is the apps that i bought from Android :(

Liking what I see. There's another under the hood improvement to expect over the S8+; 50% more RAM. Can't wait for 23-08-2017.

My wishlist if am ever going to buy a Sammy flagship- 4K screen/rendering, stereo speakers, no 4K recording limit (S8 suddenly put a limit when S7 didn't), 6GB RAM (Note 8 ticked it) but please have a 128GB option! am I asking too much?

This is literally an S8+ or in the world of Apple Samsung Galaxy S8s

Happy with everything bar the screen size/form factor. 6.3 inches on a skinny form factor is much smaller than what it looks on paper. It is similar in size to a 5.8 inch normal 16:9 phone. Just compare the s8+'s 6.2 inch screen with a normal 6 inch screen and it becomes clear just how cramped the s8's screen is in comparison. This is the Note Samsung. Please don't give us a cramped anorexic screen.

I've purchased and used every note to date but had to get the s8+ due to note 7 recall. Unless the note 8 comes with 4k display or is significantly brighter than my s8+ i just might wait until the s9 or note 9. This will no doubt be the king of 2017 though.

I hope a 5.7 incher is also in the works. This is way too big to handle.

The primary camera sensor is same as the S8 which is almost as same as the S7 Edge. The secondary camera has an aperture of f/2.4 with only 2x optical zoom which is unacceptable for that price tag. So I assume the old Pixel or U11 camera's could still beat Note 8's camera. Literally there isn't any department where Note 8 can be considered as an upgrade from S8+ except for Price and S Pen. TBH I'm really disappointed that Samsung is turning out to be as greedy as Apple. I'll pass.

Wrong on so many levels. Level 1 of wrongness: "The primary camera sensor is same as the S8 which is almost as same as the S7 Edge." The Note camera is ALWAYS better than the camera on the S model before it. I had the Note 7 & have the S7 Edge. Both cameras on the Note were better than the Edge. Level 2 of wrongness: "So I assume the old Pixel or U11 camera's could still beat Note 8's camera." Based on quite a few camera comparisons, the Pixel barley beat out the S7E, & again, that camera was not as good as the Note 7, which would've been phone of the year but, you know. Level 3 of wrongness: "Literally there isn't any department where Note 8 can be considered as an upgrade from S8+ except for Price and S Pen." 1. How can the price of a phone be an upgrade? 2. As is with the camera, the Note features are ALWAYS better than or in addition to those on the S model before it.

I think you are not entirely correct. My Note 3's camera was noticeably worse than my Galaxy S4 that came before the Note 3. Although I think my Note 7 was probably tiny bit better than the S7 instore display demo, which I did a quick comparison with. If the Note 8 uses the same sensor as the S8, then there's no way the Note 8 will be able to beat the Google Pixel or HTC U11, which captures far more detail than the S8 from all the comparisons I've seen. I'm talking about when you zoom in on objects in the full size photos. Zoomed out, the S8 photos has more appealing colors than the Pixel or U11 although some might say it is a bit too artificial. I'm just really hoping the Note 8 will have improved optics and not just dual camera for 2x zoom, like on the Iphone 7 plus, which is not very useful.

4000 mah + flat screen + less bloat + 128 gb option = you got a winner here. Why skimping on the battery though?

That's what I was hoping and asking , and I got called for trolling lol. Don't care about the bloat as long it has 6gb Ram will take care off it. The cpu is more efficient than the Note7s, but they shouldn't be stingy and give us the 4000mah. Just because I didn't like the curve design and tall narrow Tv remote design I get called troll lmfao. I ain't a blind Samsung fanboy.

"...tall narrow Tv remote design I get called troll" Because you say this in every single post about the Note 8, even though there have been 2 articles (including this one) with the specs revealing that it will be wider than the S8+ that you claim you have & keep referring to as a TV remote. That's why.

Every generation of Galaxy S and Note series phones, Samsung intentionally "leaks" information here and there the few moths prior to release to mislead consumers of what to expect so they don't go off buying their competitor's phones. However, the actual product always under delivers upon release. So sad. I was expecting much more from the Note 8 given the Note 7 fiasco.

I'm very disappointed with the battery size. Might as well get the S8+.

Until battery test results come back and find that it's better than the S8, or that these are just rumors and the real specs will be reviled on the 23rd...

Simply can't wait to get my hands on it. 8-23-17 is 21 days away, and the king is unveiled. It's gonna be hard to put my S8 Plus on standby, but gotta do it. I miss the S-Pen like crazy. I wonder what crazy new features it'll have.

28. TechieXP1969

Posts: 14967; Member since: Sep 25, 2013

Agreed to a point. The S-Pen features are what is gonna be the make it or deal-breaker for me. Because everything else is what we have with the S8+ already. After already dropping nearly $2G's on the S8's, I'm not in a hurry to drop another $2G's on the Note 8. Any phone I buy for me, the wife also gets and we both miss our Note 7's, but I may skip the Note 8 for me and get it for her.

That's why I put the S8+ on payments, which I never do but I knew it would be going back once the Note 8 drops...

But you will. Not only that. You will criticize your iPhone 8 at some point. Probably next year but I bet it will happen.
