There’s only a few days left before the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Samsung’s first attempt at making up for last year’s Note 7 fiasco, are officially unveiled. But what would really wipe the slate clean for the company would be a successful launch and release of a Note 7 successor. And today, specs and schematics of what is allegedly the Galaxy Note 8 have been leaked online.
According to the leak, the Note 8 will be powered by either a Snapdragon 835 processor or Samsung’s yet to be unveiled new Exynos 9-series chipset, depending on the region of release as is usually the case with Samsung’s flagships. The leak also states that it will feature 6GB of RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage, and a 6.4-inch QHD+ or 4K Super AMOLED display.
The leaked schematics reveal that the Note 8 will feature a curved display similar to the Galaxy S8 and S7 Edge as well as minimal top and bottom bezels where what is allegedly an iris sensor and the front facing camera are located. The Note 8 will also be equipped with a physical button for Samsung’s Bixby assistant like the Galaxy S8.
The schematics also reveal that the bottom of the Note 8 will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack alongside a USB Type-C port, speaker, and the S Pen slot. Lastly, the SIM card slot will be located at the top of the device.
The leaks didn’t reveal when the Galaxy Note 8 would be unveiled but with the Galaxy S8 currently taking center stage for Samsung, it’s going to take a while before the company will probably unveil the Note 8.
