A few days ago, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 appeared on Geekbench, giving fans a sneak preview of some of the features to expect when the phone is unveiled next week.
In the benchmarks, we able to determine that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will debut with a massive 6GB RAM, an Exynos 8895 SoC, Android 7.1.1 Nougat and it will carry model number SM-N950F in some markets. This is just about everything the Geekbench listing gave out, but there’s more in the latest listings on GFXBench and AnTuTu benchmarks.
The two platforms have the same variant of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – SM-N950 – and the specs being displayed are consistent all throughout. In addition to confirming the 6GB RAM module, the leaked benchmarks also confirm that the phone will have 64GB of internal storage.
On GFXBench, the Galaxy Note 8 has been listed with a 6.4-inch display screen, an area that has been a point of contention, where some sections say the screen size will be 6.3 inches. Even though the two benchmarking platforms have varied resolutions for the same screen, the one on AnTuTu gives us the default screen resolution (Full HD+) while the one on GFXBench has the full resolution, which is QHD+.
The listed variant on GFXBench has an Exynos 8895 SoC clocked at 2.3GHz and paired with a Mali-G71 GPU while the variant on AnTuTu has a Snapdragon 835 SoC running the show alongside an Adreno 540 GPU. For the cameras, both cases have a 12MP lens on the back and an 8MP shooter on the front, but we expect a second lens on the main camera, probably a 13MP shooter.
In terms of software, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 8 at an Unpacked event on August 23 and if rumors are to be believed, the phone will be available for purchase the following day, but only in the U.S.
