Galaxy Note 8: The First Mobile With Snapdragon 836 CPU?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is likely to be announced at the IFA 2017 in September or perhaps might even launch in August, and will probably release in time for the holiday season. Rumors and leaks have pointed to a premium handset with options, which would rival that of the company’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
The newest rumor about the Galaxy Note 7’s successor indicates that Samsung is actually wanting to up the ante and the Galaxy Note eight might better the Galaxy S8 series.
Based on a report from IT Home, the Galaxy Note eight won’t be house the Snapdragon 835 SoC, but its updated edition dubbed the Snapdragon 836.
Galaxy Note 8 To Feature Snapdragon 836 Chipset?
An enhanced edition of the Snapdragon 835 SoC can be expected from Qualcomm because it followed a very similar technique in 2016. Although during the 2nd one half of the season, the smartphones switched over to the better Snapdragon 821 processor, the products in the very first half of 2016 all sported the Snapdragon 820 chipset.
Nevertheless, the article also suggests that nearly all of the advances will be rather little when compared to the Snapdragon 835 SoC. For example, the Snapdragon 836 will probably come with a 2.5 GHz octa core processor. By comparison, the Snapdragon 835 boasts a 2.45 Ghz octa core chipset. The GPU in the upcoming SoC will supposedly work at 740 MHz.
In case the rumors are actually correct, then smartphones that are slated to release in the third quarter of the season might house the Snapdragon 836 chipset. It’s also thought that the Galaxy Note 8 would be the very first handset to deploy the Snapdragon 836, just love how the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ had been the primary products to be driven by the Snapdragon 835.
Other smartphones likely to house the Snapdragon 836 on launch are actually the LG V30, Google Pixel two, and Pixel two XL
Reports also suggest that Qualcomm is currently working on the Snapdragon 845 SoC, that is actually anticipated to be housed in the LG G7 and Samsung Galaxy S9 upon the launch of theirs and subsequent release in 2018.
Galaxy Note 8: Rumored Specs And Features
Based on rumors, the Galaxy Note 8 will boast a 6.3 inch QHD Super AMOLED Infinity Display, and that is somewhat bigger than the 6.2 inch one on the Galaxy S8 Plus. The screen is likely to bear the 18.5:9 aspect ratio, the same as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 series.
The Galaxy Note 8 will probably come pre-loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat at launch and can be up-gradable to Android 7.1.1 when it will make its debut. The Galaxy Note eight is also likely to come with a dual camera setup, an iris scanner, and fingerprint sensor.
The Galaxy Note 8 is believed to launch in the 2nd one half of the season. It remains to be seen whether the Samsung smartphone is in fact the first person to deploy the Snapdragon 836 SoC.
