We recently got a confirmation that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be launched on August 23. At the time, we were positive that before this date is here, there will be plenty of more information regarding this phone.
True to this statement, a famous tipster has just published a set of new specs that are expected to show up on the phablet when it arrives in a month’s time. Apparently, the tech giant has begun testing the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and if the same reports are to be believed, the phone will get a high-end 6GB RAM variant that will ship with a huge 256GB of storage.
According to the tipster, this Samsung Galaxy Note 8 variant has been crowned the Emperor Edition and it will be unveiled in South Korea alongside the standard model that will also ship to other global markets featuring 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. As expected, this special edition will also make its way to the Chinese market.
In addition to giving out the details on this Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition, the tipster also notes that the phone will get three color variants that include two of those used on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ – Orchid Gray and Midnight Black. As for the third color variant, it’s believed to be a new addition dubbed Deep Blue, a color that should not be confused with the famous Coral Blue.

Previous rumors have hinted that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch curved Super AMOLED display screen with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio, a Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 CPU and a 3300mAh battery unit. For the software, the Note 8 will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with the latest Samsung Experience skin on top alongside support for Google’s Daydream.
We’ve also heard reports that the Galaxy Note 8 will get a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant that will be sold in the U.S., Europe and other markets where the Emperor Edition will not be heading. Apparently, this variant will carry a price tag of more than $1100, which could make the Note 8 the most expensive Samsung smartphone to date.
