Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leaked render hints at a 'large' Infinity display

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leaked render hints at a 'large' Infinity display

Now that the once extremely volatile Note 7 (now Galaxy Note 7 FE) made a comeback in South Korea, Samsung is all set to introduce its successor - the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

According to the images leaked by Slashleaks, the alleged Galaxy Note 8 is seen without any bezels on side and instead sports an S8-like infinity display. Local carriers have not disclosed sales numbers, but the number of mobile subscribers surged to 24,000 per day since Friday, up from the average of 15,000 in recent weeks. The 60 percent spike indicates that the Galaxy Note FE is selling well in South Korea.

There has been a slight upgrade in terms of the processor as well and the Note FE for global markets may be powered by a Snapdragon 821 chipset compared to the Snapdragon 820 that fueled the Galaxy Note 7.

Smartphone is available in Black and Gold colour variants. "We have no plans to roll out more Note FE phones in Korea", an unnamed official ominously told the press, refusing however to answer to speculation of an worldwide expansion in any way.




Samsung Galaxy S8, the South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics Co.'s flagship smartphone, has been rated as the No. 1 smartphone in the USA market, industry tracker Strategy Analytics said Sunday. This decision was taken as the company plans to retail only 400,000 units of the Note FE. However, Samsung is being excessively cautious which is why it downgraded the battery capacity from 3,500 mAh to 3,200 mAh.

The Samsung Note 7 FE began making news earlier this year when rumors surfaced about a refurbished edition. The comments from the unnamed official are good news for fans of the Galaxy Note 7, which was recalled twice and discontinued less than three months after its release.

Samsung has come up with another phone and launched its J-series smartphone called Galaxy J7 Max, also called Galaxy on Max.

Meanwhile, Samsung will likely release the Galaxy Note 8 around September with a reported retail price of around $900.
