Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is pretty much expected to be launched on August 23 at the Galaxy Unpacked event scheduled to hold on that day. Before now, there have been series of leaks surrounding the specs and design of the device, giving us an idea of what to expect. We have now gotten what is likely the first set of real-life photos of the Galaxy Note 8 showing the design of the device from all angles. The images look like shots of a Note 8 prototype and they contain a number of blurred parts which masks a number of relevant texts and features but we still get to see the device in its full glory.
The picture showing the rear view of the Galaxy Note 8 confirms the presence of dual cameras at the rear which is said to be two 12MP sensors with Optical Image Stabilization. There is also a rear fingerprint sensor sitting at the side of the rear camera flash just like on the S8. We also can see the presence of the usual Stylus pen which the Galaxy Note series is known for. The source of the leak claims Note 8’s S Pen will be the same in terms of hardware as the botched Note 7, which means it will offer 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, and will also be usable even when the Note 8 is submerged in water. The Note 8 will also be coming with a 3.5mm audio jack.
As far as the specs go, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to pack a Snapdragon 835 chip on some models and an Exynos 8895 chip on some others. The device will also feature 6GB RAM version as the standard model and a higher 8GB RAM version which would likely be China exclusive. The price is expected to go as high as 7,000 Yuan (~$1030).
