Galaxy Note 8 Viral Leaks Reveal What's Actually Different from Galaxy S8
So far, the rumors and tips have pointed out the similarities of both Samsung upcoming flagships but the latest leak should clearly be able to differentiate Galaxy Note 8 from Galaxy S8.
Galaxy Note 8 details aren't that sketchy anymore ever since a schematic leak went viral online. It tells a lot about the design of the impending smartphone from the front, top and bottom.
Galaxy Note 8 display is seemingly confirmed - a curved edge and curved body. The phone will feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, a much bigger phone than Galaxy S8 with the rumored 5.8-inch screen. With a 4K display, the phone could have 4428 x 2160 screen resolutions, according to Phone Arena. As for the Galaxy S8, it could come with 2220 x 1080 pixels resolution.
The Note 7 successor will have a dual-lens module for its rear camera and a bigger battery capacity than Galaxy S8. Samsung will equip the Note iteration with an S Pen, iris scanner, and USB type C.
Judging from the sketch, the edge-to-edge screen makes the bezels even thinner on Galaxy Note 8. There is a 3.5 mm headphone jack, S Pen slot, and a new button, which is believed to be dedicated for Bixby. There is nothing more to reveal about the sketch but it somehow confirms a few Galaxy Note 8 rumors we've heard before.
However, fans can be sure that Note 8 and S8 won't have many differences except on the optics, battery, stylus and display resolutions. To put into perspective, Galaxy S7 and Note 7 have a lot in commons except on the areas mentioned above, GSM Arena wrote.
Speaking about the similarities, Galaxy S8 and Note 8 will be powered by Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 9000 series depending on the regions. Both will most likely have a 6 GB of RAM in tow coupled with inbuilt storage up to 256 GB.
