Here are the predictions we made back in May 2017 for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 How did we do?

Back in may we wrote an article called Note 8 set to have dual Camera and although a lot of it was hope rather than expectation we didn’t do too bad!

Obviously we predicted dual camera but the list was as follows:

  1. 4k screen χ
  2. 6.3 – 6.5 inch screen √
  3.  under 8mm thick χ
  4. dual cameras √
  5. 4000mAh battery χ
  6. fast charging √
  7. fast wireless charging √
  8. USB-C support √
  9. Android 7.0 Nougat √
  10.  iris scanner √
  11. fingerprint scanner under the screen χ
  12. Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (US Version) √
  13. 6GB of RAM √
  14. 64 – 128GB of storage √
  15. Bixby √

To be fair some of those were fairly obvious but thanks to our friends on Chinese microblogging website Weibo some of the more interesting facts like the dual camera and iris scanner were confirmed.

We will try and do a better job with our predictions and research with the new Galaxy S9 (Assuming that’s what they call it next time round).
