The Galaxy S8 has barely begun shipping, but we’re already thinking about the Note8. Even with a 6.2-inch screen on the S8+, Samsung has already confirmed that a new phablet is on the way later this year, and from what we’ve heard, it looks like it will be even better.
Reliable flagship phone analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI has weighed in on the Note8, saying that the device will likely pack a 6.4-inch screen and the same Snapdragon 835 chip as the S8. As 9to5Google reports, the premier feature of the phablet will be the biggest omission from the S8: a dual camera system. In what the analyst calls “the most important upgrade” in the Note8, the new setup will combine a 12MP wide-angle lens with a 13MP telephoto one, along with 3x optical zoom and dual optical image stabilization. Of note, Kuo adds that the Note8’s camera system “will be much better than that of iPhone 7 Plus, and likely match that of (the presumed) OLED iPhone.”
