A prototype Note 8 with the model number SM-N950F destined for Europe and other global markets in a single-SIM avatar has been spotted on benchmarking platform Geekbench.
Samsung removed the home button in the Galaxy S8 to expand the display to the entire front face of the smartphone, which is something that Apple will do with the upcoming iPhone 8.
Samsung has announced that it will host its "Unpacked 2017" on August 23 in NY, where it will likely to launch the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. The single-core score stands at 1,984 and multi-core score is 6,116. While not much is known about the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone from the side of Samsung, thanks to the leading speculations and rumors, one can obtain a vague idea regarding what can be expected from them. However, it is unclear what kind of functions Samsung will build into the Galaxy Note 8 that will take advantage of the technology. Forbes reports that the "phablet is expected to ship with a force sensitive display that allows the handset to register different levels of pressure, potentially triggering different responses in the TouchWiz user interface". It is expected to come in orchid grey and deep blue colour options as well.
With a few more days left for the launch, the Galaxy Note 8 has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmarking database by Android Headlines. Another report by the Korean portal says pre-booking for the device will open from September 1 and it will go on sale in South Korea starting September 15.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature two 12 MP rear camera sensors with Samsung's dual-pixel auto-focus technology. It will be backed by a 3,300mAh battery, and the phone could cost €999 (or approx Rs 75,749), making it the company's most expensive smartphone till date.
