Samsung had scheduled the launch of the Galaxy Note8 for the 23rd of August in New York in an Unpack Event. Now just about three weeks from the reveal, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 has been certified by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission).
Early today, a new listing bearing model number SM-N950U surfaced on the FCC’s website. The previous Samsung phablet flagship, the Galaxy Note7 had arrived with the model number SM-N930. According to the nomenclature and naming convention, it is safe to assume that this is indeed the Samsung Galaxy Note8.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is likely to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage on the base model. There are talks of an “Emperor Edition” of the smartphone which would land with 256GB of internal storage. On the display front, Samsung has provided the Note8 with a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED panel with the tall 18.5:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1440 x2960. The most interesting addition to this year’s Note flagship is likely to be the inclusion of a dual-camera setup at the rear of the device featuring up to 3 times optical zoom capabilities. Finally, Samsung’s phablet flagship is likely to come with the iconic S-Pen as well along with an expanded feature-set.
The last outing for the Galaxy Note8 on a benchmarking site also revealed that it is running on Android v.7.1.1, Nougat which is understandable since Samsung would be adding more Note oriented features on it.
