Samsung wants to “do bigger things” with its next smartphone, the Galaxy Note 8. The company has rolled out a teaser video ahead of the launch of the smartphone. The Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled to be launched at an event in New York on August 23. Samsung, in its video, has hinted at a massive display which the Note series has been already popular for. Along with the teaser, we found a hashtag which says ‘#DoWhatYouCant’. However, the meaning behind the tagline is not known as of now. In the teaser, we can see the Note S-Pen, that crosses out several words on the Galaxy Note 8 outlines. The teaser actually did not give out too many details about the latest flagship device, yet it is highly possible that the S-Pen will be the highlight of the event.
There are indications that Samsung will most probably introduce an upgraded variant of the S-Pen. However, it is not known if Samsung will also introduce some new S-Pen software features, but there is a high chance of the same. The S-Pen is one of the most popular features of the Galaxy Note series and an important differentiator from other devices. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has witnessed several leaks and rumours. This is mainly because the phone is highly anticipated after a huge fiasco with the exploding Galaxy Note 7 devices.
Many renders and leaks have suggested that the Galaxy Note 8 will get a 6.3-inch Infinity Display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 and a QHD resolution. The US variant of the Note 8 will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor, whereas the international model is expected to ship with Samsung’s Exynos 8895 processor. Meanwhile, in a new update, the AnTuTu and GFXBench benchmark screenshots of the device have been leaked. Both the models will likely to ship with 6GB RAM, 64GB storage and microSD card slot. It will be the first Samsung Note device to carry that much of RAM.
The smartphone is expected to be made available in select markets in September, though a recent report even suggests that it may be launched in the US as early as this month. The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be Samsung’s most expensive smartphone to date.
