The next big release in the Android world is likely to be the next iteration of one of Samsung’s most prolific (and lately controversial) lineup: the Note series. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has to shoulder the responsibility of repairing the “Note” brand and Samsung plans to do just that by giving us a phone to truly watch out for.
Notable leaker @OnLeaks, in collaboration with 91mobiles, has released 360° video renders of the Note 8, giving us a very good look at what to expect from the next Note.
The main talking point of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be its dual rear camera setup. This will allegedly be the second device from Samsung to come with two cameras on the back, with the first device being the rumored and upcoming Galaxy C10. The dual cameras will be placed horizontally and are said to sport independent optical image stabilization. The device will reportedly measure 162.4 x 74.5 x 8.4mm while the thickness will ramp up to 9.5mm at the camera bump. Aside from the dual rear cameras, the camera bump will also house the fingerprint scanner.
The renders also show that the Note 8 will continue with Samsung’s dual curved edge Infinity Display design as seen on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Other elements of the device like the SPen, the USB Type-C port, and even the 3.5mm headphone jack are visible in the renders.
From the renders so far, the Note 8 appears more box-like with its more pronounced edges, as opposed to the S8 and S8+ which had a more curved design all around. The display on the Note 8 will be sized at 6.3″, which is just a tad bit larger than the 6.2″ on the S8+, so the devices will make for an interesting comparison.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will likely be Samsung’s most expensive mass consumer device, with a rumored price of €999 so far. Other specifications of the device include a top-of-the-line SoC like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 and a healthy 6GBs of RAM.
