A leaked photo of Samsung Galaxy 8's alleged schematic diagram reveals some of the features that will be expected from the unit.
The photo, as posted in Slashleaks, has information about the overall design of the model. According to the leak, the device will feature a bezel-less face with a 6.4-inch surface. This wide surface will be complemented by an active-matrix, organic light-emitting diode display, which will have a 4K (3840×2160) resolution. It may also feature a Quad HD (QHD) resolution.
The device will employ the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which might have long been on the market by the time of the device's release. The Galaxy Note 8 might alternatively be equipped with an Exynos-9000m processor for the Asian market.
The octa-core processor will have a maximum clock speed of 2.45 gigahertz (GHz) which will greatly improve the performance of the phone series. This is in addition to the random-access memory (RAM) capacity of the unit being pegged at 6 gigabyte (GB).
The internal memory will be capable of containing data of up to 256 GB, which may be expanded by users with micro SD chips.
Its physical appearance provided clues to the possible usage of an S Pen Stylus similar to that of its predecessors. It will also retain the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The leaked design also reveals the top part of the phone, and it has two circles, which may be the phone's front camera and the iris sensor.
Earlier reports say that the company is looking to develop its screen with the use of a new pressure-sensitive OLED touch display. The 3D touch from the previous devices should then be expected with the arrival of the new model.
The release of the product will be in the last quarter of 2017. Some are predicting a September launch. However, it may go out on the market earlier, with previous models of the Note series being released in the second half of the year.
