We know that it’s just a matter of time before Samsung takes the wraps off the Galaxy Note 8.
Some rumors are pointing towards a mid-August launch date while others are adamant that this will happen at the IFA 2017 in Berlin, which starts on September 1. While the debate on the expected release date is still on, a new rumor has surfaced with fresh details of the expected specs of the Note 8.
Apparently, the Chinese market will be getting an 8GB RAM variant of the phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 8. So far, we’ve heard reports that Sammy is working on two variants of the phone that will ship with either 4GB RAM or 6GB RAM, similar to the Galaxy S8+. We’ve also heard that the tech giant could use a newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 SoC on the Note 8 as compared to the Snapdragon 835 used in the S8 and S8+. Well, it turns out that a third variant is in the works.
While none of these reports are directly from Samsung, it makes sense that the Chinese market could get an 8GB RAM variant of the Galaxy Note 8. The market has massive competition when it comes to smartphones and their raw power, but still, there’re not so many models in the market with such massive power. Recently, ZTE launched the Nubia Z17 with a massive 8GB RAM and a Snapdragon 835 SoC and if reports are to be believed, the upcoming OnePlus 5 will also come with a similar package.
Earlier this year, ASUS ZenFone AR made headlines by becoming the first handset to be powered by such a massive RAM module. But if the latest rumor is to be believed, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could also join this craze with a variant of its own that will be exclusive to the Chinese market.
Other rumored specs of the Galaxy Note 8 include a 6.3 or 6.4-inch curved Super AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution, a dual-lens camera with 12MP+13MP shooters, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS out of the box.
