Despite the fact that Samsung is working on a refreshed Galaxy Note 7R, the South Korean tech giant hasn’t taken efforts off the Galaxy Note 8, the successor to the Note 7.
We know that the Galaxy Note 7R will be unveiled in the coming weeks, but according to new reports, there’s an even better Galaxy Note 8 set to follow it later. Apparently, this phone will come with a massive 6.3-inch display screen that should keep the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio and features as the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Unlike last year where the Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S7 Edge screens were separated by 0.2 inches, it appears that this year’s Note 8 and S8+ will only be separated by 0.1 inches.
There have been rumors all over regarding the Galaxy Note 8, with the most recent coming from renowned Apple analyst and KGI Security’s Ming-Chi Kuo, who argued that the Note 8 will don a powerful dual-lens camera on the back. Kuo suggested that Samsung will go for a dual 12MP+13MP setup, with the main 12MP lens offering a wide-angle view while the 13MP sensor will be a telephoto lens. Features such as 3x optical zoom and dual OIS were also mentioned.
If anything, the latest rumors corroborate what had been mentioned earlier with regards to the dual-lens camera, but this will not be the first device from Samsung to ship with a dual-lens camera setup. If anything, it’s possible that the dual-lens camera could first be tried out on the Galaxy C series, just like it happened with the 6GB RAM that first appeared on the Galaxy C9 Pro.
Unfortunately, there’s nothing much we can say about the Galaxy Note 8 at this point in time, but looking at what Samsung has done with the Galaxy S8, we are looking forward to some big things ahead. If anything, the tech giant will be looking to bounce back with a bang following what happened to the Galaxy Note 7.
