Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Everything we know (so far)

Now that Samsung has released the Galaxy S8, it’s time we look ahead to the Galaxy Note 8. I don’t have to remind you what a big deal the device will be. Following last year’s unfortunate Note 7 recall, the pressure is on for Samsung to release a worthy follow-up that doesn’t catch fire. Easier said than done.

While we’re not expecting the Galaxy Note 8 to arrive until the fall, there have been a handful of leaks revealing what to expect. It’s very likely the design we saw from the Galaxy S8 will translate over to the Note 8 when it launches—Infinity Display and all—with the addition of stylus support, of course.

So, how will it differ from last year’s model? According to multiple reports, the Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch QHD display and a dual camera setup. That’s good news for Samsung fans because it means the company’s excellent mobile cameras will likely get even better.

Aside from that, we can probably expect the device to come with numerous biometric options, Bixby, and new S Pen features. And, if we’re lucky, a fingerprint sensor beneath the display—something that was supposedly planned for the Galaxy S8, but Samsung apparently couldn’t complete the feature in time for the device’s launch.

It’s still early days for Note 8 rumors, but based on what we’ve heard, it will be Samsung’s most exciting and complete smartphone yet. Remember, the Note 7 would have been our favorite phone of 2016 were it not for the recall. Check out the video above for more on what to expect from the Note 8.
