The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Will Be Unveiled On August 26th, Will Have 64GB As Base Storage & Cost Between $1000-$1100
We’ve seen a lot of rumors floating around related to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 recently. The best of these claims that the device will feature a dual vertical rear camera. Dual cameras are the norm of flagship town, and not a single Samsung device in the arena features them. The Note 8 will change all of this according to rumors and today we’ve got a new source which corroborates this little detail.
Korean publication OSEN quotes a source working for Samsung, who’s got some pretty juicy details for the upcoming Note 8. According to him, Samsung will remove the 32GB storage option for the device this year. The Note 8 will launch in two storage options, starting from 64GB and ending at 128GB. Users will be able to upgrade storage to 256GB via MicroSD cards. The device will also ship with 6GB RAM, enough to supplement the Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 and meet the demands of most users.
The big reveal today, however, relates to the price for Samsung’s phablet. This, according to the source, “I know that it is about $ 1,000 to $ 1100 once it is different from the country of origin”. That’s a big price tag and will make the Note 8 the market’s most expensive flagship mobile gadget, beating both the S8 and the iPhone 8. As regarding the reason for this outrageous alleged price tag, the source adds, “I am told that the price of parts has been a factor of rising price and that some prices have been set high, so I think we should see more about how it will eventually be”.
Finally, he goes on to add that Samsung will unveil the Note 8 in New York City, on August 26th. The device will also feature a rear dual camera, making it the first of its kind. The resolution for this will be 12M + 13MP. We’ll also get a rear fingerprint sensor, just like the Galaxy S8. The 6.3-inch device from Samsung will follow the Galaxy Note7, whose malfunctions cost Samsung severely in both cash and reputation. Thoughts?
