The folks over at Android Authority have just published a detailed spec sheet for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8 phablet, revealing an improved S Pen stylus, out-of-the box support for the latest ‘Android 8.0 Oreo’ OS and a powerful battery.
Samsung held an event today to unveil the new Note 8, and gave some media outlets advanced units for hands-on testing.
With the latest chipsets, 6 GB of RAM, IP68 water-resistance, a dual camera system, 6.3-inch QHD+ AMOLED display and storage options up to 256 GB, the South Korean company’s upcoming flagship device looks impressive on paper, although real life performance could be a completely different story, not just for Note 8, but for just about every new Android flagship smartphone.
The device will be priced at about $1299 CAD outright, so it’s not exactly cheap. No word whether this phone will burst into flames like the Note 7 (#toosoon?).
Canadian pricing for the Note 8 on contract is similarly pricey as well from Rogers, Telus and Bell. Expect to pay $550 or $750 upfront for the device, with minimum monthly plans of $85 or $95 per month on a two-year term.
