If the latest news and rumors are to be believed, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will cost as much as $900. Samsung's premium Note devices have always been expensive; they often have the biggest screens and the S-Pen styluses. Now, however, with the Galaxy Note 8 set to arrive by September, it is interesting to note that Samsung is preparing its most expensive device to date. The price of the Galaxy Note 8 is as important as the features.
Aside from the price tag, which is just one of the highlights of the Note 8, the insides of the device will be populated with premium parts, parts which are truly worthy of such an expensive price tag. A report in Venture Beats states that reports the Note 8 will have a 6.3-inch display, as well as dual rear cameras. The mammoth device will be powered by a 3,300mAh battery. he Exynos 8895 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipsets and 6GB of RAM.
Two variants will be made available: one with the Exynos 8895 and another with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. This is the first time that Samsung is providing 6GB of RAM on the Note device and marks only the second time that the South Korean giant has exceeded 4GB of RAM, second only to the C9 Pro. This is the reason why the price of Galaxy Note 8 is so important.
The Note 8's success is important, after last year's Note 7 debacle. The explosions were later blamed on the battery. This might be one reason why the relatively conservative battery capacity has been made this year. This year's Note iteration will also see the new S-Pen as well, which has clearly seen some major revisions, something we had wished for earlier. It will boast of split-screen multitasking and will also be capable of full-sentence language translation besides currency conversion. You will soon be able to pin handwritten notes to the always-on display using the stylus as well.
There was some confusion about the release date of the device, but we had clarified that earlier as well as the fact that the Galaxy Note 8 will launch without the on-screen fingerprint scanner. What we can tell you is that it will come in the first half of September, with sales starting mid-September to early October. The IFA Berlin 2017, a global trade fair, will take place between September 1 to 6, and it leads us to speculate that Samsung may well arrange for a first official glimpse of the Galaxy Note 8 during one of the IFA pre-shows. In toto, the Galaxy Note 8 price riddle has now been solved.
