The first half of 2017 is about to end, Andrews camp major flagship manufacturers have been debut, they have their own characteristics, but the overall strength is still the strongest Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 +. The second half of this year, the flagship war still will not stop, in addition to the popularity of the iPhone 8, Andrews camp will also usher in LG V30, Google Pixel 2 with super highlight Note 8.
As Note 7 last year to 7 to bring a big disaster to Samsung, so this year Note 8 particularly eye-catching, there are months from the release of the rumors about it like the iPhone 8 as flying. So, Samsung can save the face, save almost destroyed the Note brand?
Here we come together to sort out the existing rumors, this Galaxy Note 8 can convince you to give up the 10th anniversary of the iPhone 8?
Galaxy Note 8 design
Six colors of Note 8 renderings
As the appearance of the Galaxy S8 visual impact is very good, so Samsung will certainly continue in Note 8 on this design, but the aircraft certainly not as rounded S8, the corner of the arc will be more tough, so the overall look Note 8 would be bigger than Galaxy S8 +.
If no accident, Note 8 will continue to use sandwich body design, before and after the double glass, the box was aluminum alloy material. In addition, the full screen and Bixby's dedicated keys will continue. At the same time the existing news shows that Samsung will continue to retain 3.5 mm headphones on the machine.
Of course, Note series of secret weapons - Pen will certainly come back, Samsung should be the root of the magic pen to add more features.
However, S8 has been on the back of the fingerprint recognition I am afraid in Note 8 is still no change, rumors that Samsung in order to catch the iPhone 8 before the release of Note 8 to the market, has abandoned the fingerprint recognition into the screen effort , Would like to use this feature, I am afraid to wait until the Galaxy S9. If Samsung really can not create miracles in the past few months, I am afraid Note 8 will be born at the beginning of a low iPhone 8.
Galaxy Note 8 screen
Note 8 looks more tough
Galaxy S8 released, the Samsung flagship machine a big selling point - the surface screen is also upgraded to "unbounded screen." Note 8 will definitely use this cool 18.5: 9 screen. As for size, it may be slightly larger than S8 + (6.2 inches) to 6.3 inches.
However, the resolution of the Note 8 screen, we still do not know. If you do not want Note 8 and S8 homogenization, Samsung can be the same as Sony will upgrade the resolution to 4K level, but taking into account the S8 only 1440 x 2960 resolution, and the operation to reduce the pixels to save power, I am afraid The battery suffered a big loss of Samsung this time did not dare to take risks.
Galaxy Note 8 Hardware
As we all know, the high-pass Xiao Long 835 with Samsung's 10nm technology, so Note 8 is certainly the first batch of the second half of the latest Qualcomm flagship chip products. If the tradition in accordance with last year, the second half of this year there will be a small upgrade version of Xiao Long 836. As for the domestic users are very concerned about the RAM problem, presumably Samsung will follow the trend to upgrade to 6GB, the top of the emperor version may use 8GB. On the battery capacity of the secret, I am afraid Samsung will always be conservative to the last.

Note 8 upgrade to dual camera
In addition to not create a virtual effect, Galaxy S8 camera is still the industry leader. Of course, this only short board will be completed in Note 8 era. You did not guess wrong, Samsung has to do a double camera. Rumors show that Samsung's dual-camera system by a wide-angle shooting of 12 million pixel camera and a telephoto shot of the 13 million pixel camera. At the same time, Samsung will increase the lossless zoom to 3 times (iPhone 7 Plus is 2 times).
S Pen is still a bright spot in the Note series
Samsung's TouchWiz interface, although evolving, but the experience is still not perfect, but Note 8 at least use Andrews 7.1.1. Unfortunately, Andrews is probably released with Pixel 2, so Note 8 users can not use the latest operating system for the first time.
As the Note series of business flavor thicker, so Samsung will be equipped with more applications for the aircraft, S Pen's function will be a new upgrade.
Galaxy Note 8 price and release time
Rumors that this year Note 8 will be September 1 before the IFA conference debut last year's Note 7 was also the show's star. Of course, Samsung in time to release this time is also in order to intercept part of the iPhone 8 users.
As for the price, there is no relevant information leaked. According to last year's practice, Note series will be more expensive than the S series $ 50, so this year, Note 8 may be sold for $ 900. However, if compared with the iPhone 8 price of more than 1,000 US dollars, Samsung is still quite conscience.
