For starters, both the benchmarks confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come with 6 GB RAM. This makes it the first Samsung Note series phone with that amount of RAM.

The AnTuTu benchmark shows the listing for model number SM-N9500, which according to GSMArena hints at the Chinese variant of the phone. This variant comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, Adreno 540 GPU, 6 GB RAM, 64 GB ROM, Android 7.1.1 out of the box. The GFXBench benchmark shows the SoC as Exynos 8895 with a Mali G71 GPU.

In terms of camera specs, both the benchmarks confirm the presence of a 12 MP + 8 MP unit. This is different from a report we came across yesterday which hinted at a 12 MP + 13 MP camera unit. According to a report in GSMArena, the dual rear camera would allegedly be housing one 12 MP sensor with dual-pixel autofocus paired with a 13 MP telephoto camera. The 13 MP telephoto camera is expected to provide a 2x fixed optical zoom. Both the camera sensors will come with optical image stabilisation.

The GFXBench shows that the Galaxy Note 8 will be sporting a 6.4-inch display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels. This is much higher than the resolution seen on the AnTuTu benchmark which is at 2220 x 1080 pixels.

In terms of benchmark scores, AnTuTu returned 179,000.

Earlier yesterday, there were more details revealed about the Galaxy Note 8. The Korean giant had released a video teaser of the upcoming flagship phone. Apart from this, details pertaining to the dual rear camera and dual SIM variants had also leaked.

According to notes on a support page, the Galaxy Note 8 will most likely come in a dual SIM variant for the European markets.
