Price, Specs and Release Date Of Samsung Galaxy Note 8


The Note series isn't dead and, despite the Note 7's demise, its successor is due to arrive this year. Rumors about the Note 8 say it will come with a 4K display and the new Bixby assistant, and the latest news is that Samsung has reportedly begun firmware development for the device. Let's hope the successor to the Note 7 lives up to its code name.

Galaxy Note 8 release date

A tweet from Evan Blass previously shed some light on what Samsung may be planning for its products in 2017. In his tweet, Blass referred to a smartphone that may be in the works with the model number SM-N950. Because the Note series has so far used the name scheme N9xx this is the first tangible indication we have seen that Samsung will not only be sticking with the Note series, but that it will release a Galaxy Note 8 this year.
Samsung Galaxy S8 models are indeed skipping SM-G94* model numbers, will ship as SM-G950 & SM-G955. Know what else is in the works? SM-N950.

Previously, the Note devices were unveiled in August, so we might see the Galaxy Note 8 make an appearance in August 2017. This would allow Samsung quite a lot of time to ensure that their new model does not come with the same faults as the Galaxy Note 7.

As the Note 8 is currently under development, the manufacturer had to choose a code name. And, according to SamMobile, it is being called Great. This is contrary to a previous rumor that said the Note 8 would be called Baikal, after the Siberian Lake considered to the be the largest freshwater reserve on Earth. SamMobile also revealed that the model number of the international unlocked device would be SM-N950F, with the ending letter subject to change based on the market. This is consistent with the model number given by Evan Blass in the tweet mentioned above.

A source has told SamMobile that Samsung has started work on developing firmware for the international variant of the Galaxy Note 8. The build numbers are: N950FXXU0AQC6, N950FOXM0AQC6 and N950FXXU0AQC6.

Galaxy Note 8 display

According to a leak from CNbeta, the Note 8 will have a 4K 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display. The display will be a double-sided curved screen, with no physical buttons. The fingerprint scanner will thus be on the back like the Galaxy S8.

In the leaked sketch, there are two circles on the front of the phone at the top, which are likely a front camera and an iris scanner. At the bottom, we find a USB Type-C port, headphone jack, and S Pen slot.

The same CNbeta leak mentions that the Note 8 will likely have 6 GB of RAM, 256 GB of expandable internal storage and the same processor as the Galaxy S8: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895.

It would be safe to assume that the Note 8 will connect to the current or even upcoming Gear VR headset

Galaxy Note 8 software

Other new rumors relate to the software innovations that the Galaxy Note 8 will be bringing. As mentioned above, the Note 8 might adopt an ultra-definition VR feature and have improved stylus functionality. Bixby, Samsung's rumored artificial intelligence feature that is also presumed to be on the Galaxy S8, could also be making its way to the Note 8.

Do you think that Samsung will continue the Note series? Or should Samsung replace the Note series with, for example, a foldable phablet? Join the discussion on Samsung’s future plans!
