Samsung fans are eager to know if there will be a "Galaxy Note 8" soon. Indeed, the company is currently working for Note 8 as what Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh said to Reuters.
After the 2016 dilemma occurred to "Galaxy Note 7," Samsung stated through Koh that they are ready to bring back in the market a better, safer and very innovative Note 8. The Note 8 is said to have the dual camera set up, which would significantly set it apart from S8 and S8 Plus, aside for having the stylus of Samsung Note family. Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities, stated this and if proven to be true, Note 8 will definitely be the first device of Samsung with a dual camera, says Ars Technica.
It is rumored that the camera lenses of Note 8 will have a 12MP wide angle while the other one is a 13MP telephoto sensor. There haven't been any reliable news yet regarding the physical feature of Note 8, however, it can be concluded that most likely, it will have the same design with "Galaxy S8." In line with this, it is safe to say that Note 8 will also have metal, glass, and slim bezels. It might also have rounded corners with no physical button and super-sized Infinity Display.
Basing on the notes previously released by Samsung, it can also be expected that it will have narrower corners and flatter sides. Other possible features of "Galaxy Note 8" according to Android Central includes a 4K screen and from a diamond PenTile arrangement, it might move to RGB AMOLED. It will allow an increase in subpixel density while maintaining the resolution.
Another work in progress for Samsung is the integration of finger print scanner right into the AMOLED display. This technical feature wasn't able to reach for Galaxy S8's launch. Surely Samsung will include this on Note 8 if it will be ready before the release date so that it will not encounter the same reachability problem of S8's sensor. "Samsung Galaxy Note 8" will probably be released early August in time for IFA 2017 in Berlin, Germany. Launching in this European country will be a vital move to do for Note line in the region. Since Galaxy Note 4 in 2014, Europe has not seen any functional Note.
