The days leading up to the launch of an upcoming flagship phone will always be dotted with leaks and rumours. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 flagship is no different, and yet another set of leaks now reveal more details about the device’ hardware.
A tipster on Weibo going by the username ‘Ice Universe’ claims that the upcoming Samsung device will feature a 6.3-inch AMOLED display, 6 GB of RAM and two storage options of 64 GB and 128 GB. He also suggests that the display will support a resolution of 2K.
Past rumours have suggested that the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895, depending on the market, and that it’ll sport a dual-camera with 12 MP sensors. Ice Universe confirms this. He also adds that the device will be available in Black, Blue and Gold.
Leaked renders and cases indicate that the device will have a dedicated Bixby button and a fingerprint sensors on the rear of the device.
So far, leaked pricing has also placed the device in the $1,000 range, which leads us to conclude that the device is being directly positioned against Apple’s upcoming tenth anniversary iPhone, which will also be a $1,000 smartphone.
The device is expected to launch at around the same as Apple's iPhone unveiling in September.
