The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is going to unveil in an Unpack event scheduled for the 23rd of August at New York. Today, the smartphone surfaced on the popular benchmarking site, GFXBench.
GFXBench gives us a much better look at the hardware we can expect on the Galaxy Note8. The variant that was listed on the site was the single-SIM international variant and thus featured the company’s in-house Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC featuring an octa-core CPU and the ARM Mali-G71 GPU. This is complemented by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. On the display front, the site shows us that the Galaxy Note8 will come with a 6.4-inch Super-AMOLED Infinity Display featuring a resolution of 1440 x2960 pixels. Although already well known that the phablet flagship will come with a dual-camera setup at the back, GFXBench only registers a single 12-megapixel sensor. Selfie duties are handled by an 8-megapixel sensor up front.
The rear camera comes with support for touch focus and Autofocus although without details about which technology the company is using. Apart from this, it supports face detection, has a dual-LED CCT-flash and has an HDR mode. The selfie camera is good for 4K content plus can record full-HD (1920 x1080) video at hopefully 60fps.
On the sensors front, the Galaxy Note8 comes with Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, Gyroscope, Compass and Pedometer. This makes it a fairly well-rounded package which will give us explosive performance and not literally explode in our hands. We already know that the smartphone will come with Android v.7.0, Nougat out of the box under the TouchWiz UI.
