The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the most highly anticipated devices of this year. We already have some idea about the upcoming phablet, or at least about when it might be coming out. Thanks to official news from Samsung, we anticipate the Galaxy Note 8 to be released later this year, but it is not known exactly when. While most sources speculate that the device will be coming out in August, others state that it might come out later during the IFA 2017, to be hosted in Berlin.
However, as new reports have surfaced, it appears that the Galaxy Note 8 will be released later in 2017 rather than sooner. This assumption is based on the fact that Samsung will use not the Snapdragon 835 chipset, but its direct upgrade- the Snapdragon 836 SoC, to power the upcoming Note device.
This might sound surprising to many, but reports suggest that Qualcomm will release the Snapdragon 836 later this year. The new chipset is said to be a minor upgrade over last year’s Snapdragon 835 SoC. The Snapdragon 836 chipset will apparently be an Octa-core processor that can reach clock speeds of up to 2.5GHz.
Now the thing to focus on is the possible release date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. As we have stated earlier, it was thought that the Note 8 would most probably be released in August this year. But now it appears that its release will depend heavily on the launch of the Snapdragon 836. However, the reports claim that the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first device to come with the new chipset from Qualcomm.
The brand new processor will not be the only serious upgrade in the upcoming phablet. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be the first smartphone in the line-up to come with a display that will go north of the 6-inch mark. In fact, it is said that the new device will pack in a remarkable 6.3-inch display, up from the 5.7-inch one that has been seen so far.
