According to serial leaker Evan Blass, the Note 8 will retail at €999 (that’s P56,035 or $1,118), roughly 40 percent costlier than the Note 7. A pretty significant increase, no? Take note than in the Philippines, Samsung’s ill-fated 2016 flagship debuted at P39,990 (around $798 or €713). Blass is usually right about the details he shares, so this is one of those times we’re hoping he’s wrong.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly retail at €999 (that’s P56,035 or $1,118). Take note than in the Philippines, Samsung’s ill-fated 2016 flagship, the Note 7, debuted at just P39,990 (around $798 or €713).
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8, now projected to launch in the second half of September, will supposedly have the same edge-to-edge, 18.5:9 AMOLED screen found on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Its display will be larger at 6.3 inches, though. It will reportedly carry Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835 chipsets, too, but this time, the device will have 6GB of RAM instead of 4GB — the next Samsung phone to pack more than 4GB of RAM after the Galaxy C9 Pro.
For the first time, it seems that the Korean tech giant is joining the dual-camera bandwagon. Word has it that the Note 8 will sport two 12-megapixel sensors on the back, each with optical-image stabilization for the lens.
Available in black, blue, and gold, the smartphone is said to feature a 3,300mAh battery, smaller than the Note 7’s 3,500mAh battery — probably to avoid the mishap that happened last year; support for Samsung DeX, a dock that will turn the phone into an Android-based desktop; and an S Pen with more capabilities, such as full-sentence language translation.
Sounds good to us. But are you willing to shell out more than P50,000 ($998) for it?
