Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is all set to come out on 23rd August 2017. The company plans to unveil the new flagship product in an event in New York. There are rumors that the Samsung will make the phone available for pre-order the next day.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – US and EU Versions
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly have a 64GB storage with an extendable micro SD (up to 256 GB). However, the European edition of the phone may come with the DeX Dock.
DeX Dock and Its Success with Smartphones
DeX Dock converts your phone into a PC by plugging it into a doc. However, the previous attempts did not go well. Experts believe the smartphones did not have the kind of processing ability required to become PCs. Two of the famous phone models that did try to convert into a PC include Motorola Atrix and HP Elite X3.
Let us look at some of the rumored features that the new Samsung Galaxy S8 may have to offer.
Battery Time and Concerns
Anyone who follows the smartphones a bit knows the Samsung Note 7 catching fire due to battery issues. Whether the company can address that issue remains unanswered. The new phone will have a 3300 mAh battery. The company did launch Galaxy S8 but did not like to mention anything about the battery problem. It only carefully chose the word challenging when describing the process of launching a new product.
Relaunch of the Bixby
Bixby virtual assistant is Samsung’s answer to Siri by Apple and Google Virtual Assistant. The recent launch of Bixby remains confined to a few users, and not everyone can see it on their S8. Samsung did later make it available to more users in the US. But users still find it hard to get full access to its features in the United Kingdom. Note 8 will feature a newer and improved version of the Bixby. But it remains to be seen which of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 users will have full access to all its feature.
Display of the Phone
The phone will have a massive screen size of 6.3 inches. The screen will have a Super AMOLED display covering the entire front of the smartphone. The phone may feature an edge-to-edge infinity display. The phone may also do not have a physical Home key. It may also ditch the company’s logo on the front to give maximum space to the screen.
Choice of Colors
Samsung does make beautiful phones. The users still want more options when it comes to owning a phone. Reports suggest that the company plans to launch the phone in four colors. The phone will probably be available in Midnight Black, Silver or Orchid Gray, Maple Gold and Deep Sea Blue colors.
Price, and Other Available Spec Details of Samsung Galaxy Note 8
There are no confirmations about the exact price. Again rumors suggest the phone to be priced somewhere about the $1,000 price mark. The phone will feature a 12MP dual rear-camera. It will run on the Snapdragon 835 for the US consumers and Samsung Exynos 8895 CPU for the rest of the world (as per the rumors). The phone will have a 6GB RAM, with a headphone jack, and USB-C connectivity. It will come with wireless charging and a 360-degree camera.
The phone will come with loads of new features. Some of the leaked images suggest a massive change in the look and feel of the phone. We had already predicted on HoursTV that Samsung Note 8 might launch before iPhone 8.
