If You Thought the iPhone 8 Was Going to Be Expensive, Check Out the Latest Galaxy Note 8 Pricing Leak
Yesterday, promotional material of the Galaxy Note 8 was leaked, unveiling several specification details that we had known from before, except for one tiny detail that was missing from the entire mix, the pricing. A new revelation has come forth, detailing that there are going to be a total of three storage models when the Galaxy Note 8 is finally available to purchase.
Galaxy Note 8 to Be Available in the 64, 128 and 256GB Storage Models – Highest Model to Cost Shy of $1,200
According to the Chinese source, there are expected to be three Galaxy Note 8 models with a variable amount of internal storage and a constant RAM count between the three versions. Though the pricing has been provided in the source’s local currency, we have also provided our conversions, with the details listed below.
- 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM: 6288 yuan ($941)
- 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 7088 yuan ($1,061)
- 6GB RAM + 256GB ROM: 7988 yuan ($1,196)
Currency conversion is always a tricky business and if by chance you will have to pay the aforementioned amount, it will be for the unlocked versions in the U.S. Carriers will have their attractive smartphone deals up for the grabs which will make the Galaxy Note 8 purchase very enticing indeed.
The phone will come with a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display which will also sport the near-bezel-less form factor that popularized the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Marketed as an ‘Infinity Display’, you get more screen real estate, but thanks to the increased screen-to-body ratio, there is no room for a front-mounted fingerprint reader.
In addition, this Galaxy Note 8 is also going to support Quick Charging, which is quite common in flagship smartphones these days. A dual-camera boasting 2x optical zoom has also been detailed, where the second lens will act as a telephoto lens.
A Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 will be present underneath the hood, and you will get the S-Pen bundled with the flagship. The phone will be announced on August 23 and we’ll have all the details available for you then.
