Samsung executives seem to have been getting really chatty in regards to the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 lately. Whether this is part of a newly found laissez-faire attitude towards leaks in the company or not, it's a fact we've been getting a lot of the "unnamed Samsung executive claims" type of story recently. Not that we're complaining or anything.

The latest word-of-mouth rumor about the Note 8 claims that the device will actually come in two versions: one with 64 GB, and one with 128 GB of storage.

It is worth noting, however, that Samsung hasn't been so keen on fragmenting its user base lately — the Galaxy Note 7 only had a single storage option of 64 GB, while the Galaxy S8+ has a 128 GB edition which is limited to only a couple of markets. Or in other words, there's a higher than average chance this rumor is false.

Whatever the case, multiple storage options can only be a good thing for consumers, as offering more choices is never a bad thing. Still, it's worth mentioning once again that the Note 8, even in a lower-specced variant, will be a quite expensive device, even by flagship standards: previous rumors have put it at €999, or about $900. And for the full scoop on Samsung's next flagship phablet, make sure to check out our full Galaxy Note 8 rumor review.

S8/S8+ sales are much less even compared to last year, leading to Huge price cuts. Note 8 will have a hard time too

No wonder they're willing to freely talk bout it. Underwhelming phone with no new tech whatsoever. Lmao, you've all being screwed guys. The galaxy note disappoints yet again.

Still better than any IOS device. And apple will still continue trying to borrow(steal) ideas from the note. Which is perfectly fine since the consumer will benefit from it.

The iphone 8 will be better than whatever product samsung will put out in the next two years. But hey, enjoy your widgets and themes.

Like what ideas btw? Theres no idea the note series has to offer the iphone. If anything the note series is the one stealing ideas from the iphone like dual cameras, 3d touch, stereo speakers, optical zoom, portrait mode, (features they might not even be able to include) and making design a priority (which they fail at anyway).

If apples hates samsung so much why apple ordered oled panels from Samsung and Plz this year iphone 8's manufacturing processdepends on samsung's supply of oled panels .If all this is true .It means it is apple who is borrowing tech from Samsung.

And that clowns talks about Samsung copying stereo speakers from Apple, as if the iPhone was the first to implement it. Heck, the iPhone 7's "stereo" speakers , which are close to each other by millimeters, isn't stereo by any means. More like faux stereo.

LG and HTC had dual camera since 2011. LG had stereo speakers before the iPhone existed in 2005, The LG VX-9800. Optical zoom is nothing new.. Sharp V602SH had it from 2004. As for 3D touch, Taptic Feedback isn't as useful as a headphone jack. I'm sure the Portrait mode 'idea' existed on digital cameras. Design? The S7 looks better than an iPhone with its 'beautiful' big bezels. Those 'ideas' existed, the iPhone did not do it first. (Replying to Post No.9)

Keep trying to convince yourself. Maybe one day you'll believe it.

I'm impatiently waiting for the Note, definitely my must have phone this year. I don't think anything will really come close.

Just 64GB of internal storage for $1000+ price? LOL THAT'S INSANE... Can't wait to see Note 8 to flop like the Note 7

The Note7 flopped because of it's battery incident, not because of it's price tag. In fact, the Note7 wason track to break Samsung's sales record, despite it's price.

Did you forget, it's also got expanse storage tech inside? Try not to be stupid. What's worse $1000 for 64 internal +2 terabytes external, or $1000 for 256 internal, and that's all you get?

LOL! I would rather wait for a bigger internal storage similar to the ipad pro 2017's 512GB internal storage. 64GB isn't enough for me. Even the market doesn't even sell 512GB microSD card yet.

I hope that render is not the real deal. The one with finger scanner in center was better.
