Samsung has shipped over 20 million Galaxy S8 smartphones

Internally, the device will reportedly feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset for US phones (which are usually the variant that Canada receives as well), and the company's own Exynos 8895 for worldwide models, with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable by MicroSD. Blass states that his source was specifically briefed on the configuration of the forthcoming device.

Although the Galaxy Note 9 will be revealed as the first Samsung smartphone to carry screen embedded technology, it is worth noting that the screen embedded sensors will cost 4-5 times more than the previously employed fingerprint sensors.

According to the recent leaks, the price of Galaxy Note 8 will be around €999 (or approx Rs 75,749). But Samsung may have a major advantage or two over Apple this time. That all translates to physical dimensions of 162.5mm x 74.6mm, with an 8.5mm thickness. The report says that Samsung has no reason to risk the technology in the S9 since the upcoming iPhone 8 has ditched efforts to implement it.

Leaks about the Samsung Electronic (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) Galaxy Note 8 and Apple Inc.'s (NASDAQ:AAPL) flagship iPhone 8 are flowing in from nearly everywhere. While only those two smartphones are now listed as part of the offer, the folks at XDA Developers spotted that this wasn't always the case. After the utter disaster of the Galaxy Note 7, we're impressed by how Samsung has bounced back against the harsh regulatory brick wall, not to mention the deluge of negative PR that rained on it for several months. You can't do that with the Note 8.

64GB of storage will be on offer with the Galaxy Note 8, as well as expandable storage. Blass only shared the front panel, but as one can see from the image, Samsung has apparently made a decision to carry over the Infinity Display to the Galaxy Note line.

And the analyst reveals that the Korean manufacturer will include dual rear-facing cameras with 12-megapixel sensors in the Galaxy Note 8. The phone features one regular 12MP camera and another telephoto lens which helps get a better zoom. The optical image stabilization will power both modules of the secondary camera.
