The next new generation of the Samsung galaxy note device will soon be entering the phablet market very soon. In the quarterly result announcement made by Samsung, the smartphone giant hinted that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be released in the second half of 2017.
Like every other smartphone that’s destined to shake the smartphone market, leaks and rumors will circulate the online world prior to its release and the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is not an exception.
Recent leaks stated that the phablet will feature a 6.3-inch infinity display which is larger than the Galaxy S8+ and the phone will be powered by the new Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 836 SoC and a 6GB RAM and up to 256 GB ROM.
According to a report from a Chinese website, which claimed that the Snapdragon 836 SoC will be an Octa-core CPU which can clock up to 2.5GHz and a 740MHz clocked GPU.
The rumored specs of the new Qualcomm chipset which will be found on smartphones released around the third and fourth quarter of the year will find its way first into the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Although Qualcomm is known for releasing chipsets that are a slight upgrade from its predecessor as seen and compared between the rumored specs of the 836 and their latest available chipset 835.
If rumors are correct, other smartphones that will feature the Snapdragon 836 SoC will be the LG V30, Xiaomi Mi Note 2, Google pixel 2 phones and more.
While Snapdragon 836 SoC drops very soon, let’s say next month, Qualcomm is already cooking up another chipset called Snapdragon 845. This will be the next generation flagship processor that will succeed the 836 we are expecting and the already available 835.
Meanwhile, the 845 will not be available till 2018, that means that the 836 and the 835 will spend a lot of time enjoying the attention.
Samsung really needs to get this one right, after the setbacks the brand suffered last year with the exploding note 7. They should have something mouth watering to dish out to their fans this year.
