Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Specifications Launch Date Price
SamMobile published the serial number for Note 8: SM-N950F, its international version unlocked. It seems that in the end, your name will be Great instead of Baikal that has been used for your development process.
The Note is undoubtedly one of Samsung’s flagship devices and now has two reasons to make it even bigger. The first is, as we have said, to continue the success of this line. And the second is to clean your name with a device that will excite us even more than the Note7, considered by many as the best device of 2016.
In November we heard about a successor for Note7 and now we get more information about his key name. According to Ice Universe Galaxy Note 8 was to be called Baikal for all development processes. Baikal is one of the deepest lakes in the world and is located to the south of Siberia.
Galaxy Note 8: Screen
In 2017 the virtual reality segment is gathering force. Especially thanks to the opportunities offered by the smartphone.
Rumors suggest that the Galaxy S8 will boast a 2K display as its two predecessors, while the new Galaxy Note 8 will come equipped with 4K display resolution. This will be a succulent improvement for the field of virtual reality (VR). We also assume that it will arrive with a new virtual reality glasses, Gear VR, but it is not so clear that points to the car of Google Daydream View.
Galaxy Note 8: Software
New rumors indicate that the development of software that will bring Note 8 has been launched. We hope that the device is perfectly adapted to the virtual reality but without forgetting the main characteristic of the Note range: the S-Pen. Samsung’s artificial intelligence, Bixby, which made its debut on the Galaxy S8, will also be part of Note 8.
We found, obviously, Android Nougat with its interface TouchWiz and the new owner of Grace UX that now has happened to be called Samsung Experience. As usual, Samsung will pre-install some of your applications and also third-party devices.
At the moment, Sammobile confirms the start of development of the new phablet firmware with the filtration of the compilation numbers for the international version:
- Galaxy Note 8: N950FXXU0AQC6 / N950FOXM0AQC6 / N950FXXU0AQC6
Galaxy Note 8: Technical Specifications and Features
Another field of expansion in this 2017 is artificial intelligence. With the S8 we will see the debut of Bixby, the personal assistant created by Viv Labs, a software company acquired by Samsung in October 2016. Viv Labs has a team that has been working in this field since 2012 and are the creators of Siri, the assistant Apple staff.
The assistant Viv (precursor of Bixbit) was born a few months before the purchase of the company by Samsung, in May of that same year. Unlike Siri, Viv is an artificial intelligence of open source and to which you could add add-ons as plug-ins.
Galaxy Note 8: Release Date
The last two Galaxy Note appeared in August ahead of their traditional appointment at the IFA Berlin. This year all the attention is placed, for the moment, on the flagship, the S8, which has been delayed until March to avoid the errors committed with Note7.
We do not know if this delay will also affect the launch of future Note but at least is working on this device as already announced Evan Blass in late 2016.
