Samsung Galaxy Note 8: What we know so far.

The Galaxy Note 8 is shaping up to be even better than the S8 Plus, though it will come at a cost.


The Note 7 was, by all accounts, a disaster. But the Note 8 is expected to return Samsung's Galaxy flagship phablet line to greatness when it launches.

The Galaxy Note 8 is perhaps the most high-profile smartphone coming from Samsung's stable this year. Even though the Galaxy Note 8 isn't coming anytime soon, and there's still time before the flagship smartphone hits the market. Here's everything we know about the Galaxy Note 8.

The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to sport the same design language like the Galaxy S8 series, barring a few cosmetic changes. While the design is expected to remain the same, the Note 8 might feature a slightly bigger 6.3-inch QHD ‘Infinity Display’ Super AMOLED display.


Latest reports suggest the Note 8 might have a dual rear camera setup, similar to Apple iPhone 7 Plus, OnePlus 5 and Huawei P10. Apparently the phone will feature two 12-megapixel cameras stacked horizontally and not vertical, as speculated earlier. The dual camera setup is claimed to come located to the left of flash and heart rate sensor.Previously reports in the past have claimed the Note 8 to feature a dual camera setup with a combination of 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 13-megapixel telephoto lens.

Samsung has been trying to embed an optical fingerprint sensor into the phone’s display for quite sometime. However, the company has unable to do so because of technical issues. Which is why the Galaxy Note 8 may not feature an in-screen fingerprint scanner embedded into the Note 8’s display.


It’s also highly likely that Samsung will retain the IP68-certified waterproof design we’ve seen on both the Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S8. This means the phone has been tested underwater at depths of 1.5 metres for 30 minutes – and lived to tell the tale.

Galaxy Note 8 battery safety: Will it explode?
No one can forget when Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 twice last year after a battery issue caused some users’ phones to spontaneously catch fire. So whether you think it’s an overreaction or not, there will absolutely be some consumers who are concerned about the safety of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.

The good news is that the Galaxy Note 8 probably won’t explode; Samsung will be very keen to avoid any such gaffe a second year running, considering how financially damaging the Note 7 debacle turned out to be.
In a bid to prevent fiery phones in 2017, 

Samsung has rolled out the new ‘8-Point Battery Safety Check’ scheme across its smartphone manufacturing process: “It involves putting our batteries through extreme testing, inside and out, followed by careful inspection by X-ray and the human eye to ensure highest quality.”
Samsung adds: “This program is our commitment to safer devices now and in the future.”
