Galaxy Note 8 Set To Have Dual Camera

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have to produce something significant to overcome the disaster that was the Note 7.

The Galaxy Note line is best known for its large, high-resolution screen and S Pen stylus support. So it is likely that we will see a 4k screen for the first time on a mobile phone.

Display

So.. as we are expecting the Note 8 to come with  4K SuperAMOLED display, it’s only fair to assume that there will be a size increase of the screen. We’ve have seen this happen with the new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, the display size increased to 5.7in and 6.2in respectively due to much slimmer bezels and new aspect ratio, it’s likely that the Note’s traditional 5.7in display will also be increased to around 6.3 – 6.5 inches. The Note 8 is also tipped to get a pressure-sensitive display, too.

The rest of the phone

It is expected to be under 8mm thick, waterproof to IP68, feature dual cameras and a high-capacity (circa-4000mAh) battery with adaptive fast charging, fast wireless charging and USB-C support.

It will run Android 7.0 Nougat, with an update to follow within a few months of its release. Samsung’s usual sensors – the heart-rate scanner, fingerprint scanner and iris scanner – should all be present, though with the fingerprint scanner now moved to under the screen as this is also what is expected from the upcoming iPhone. We believe that it was intended to be under the screen with the Galaxy S8 but they ran out of time before having to release the handset.
The S8 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM so we’d  expect the Note 8 to come with 6GB of RAM and 64 – 128GB of storage.

There is only one  thing you can guarantee is that the Note 8 will feature the same software as the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which means Android Nougat, TouchWiz, and the new AI assistant Bixby.

Some Evidence

The Following image shared by @kksneakleaks was said to be a prototype or abandoned design of the Galaxy S8+ that showed the original intention was to have the fingerprint sensor under the screen as a result of it not showing up on the back of the handset. Notice also that there is a dual camera. 

I think that Galaxy S8+ owners may have been short changed this time around.

The leaks are being far better protected by Samsung this time around.
