With every new smartphone, we see an increase in the price, and that’s somewhat pretty obvious because, with every new smartphone, the company tries to add the latest stuff. Let’s take an example of Samsung. The Galaxy S7 was launched last year for around $669 whereas the S8 of this year is priced at $720 or $750, depending on where you shop. Well, the Note series a bit more premium than the ‘S’ series and the Note devices are usually more expensive than the Galaxy ‘S’ device for the same year. This year, we are going to see the Galaxy Note 8 in Summer, and it is pretty obvious that it will be priced higher than the S8. But how much? Well, it seems like we got the answer.
Thanks to Evan Blass, he revealed today via Twitter that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be priced around 1000€ or roughly 900+USD (European Prices are higher due to the VAT). This increase in the price is because of the reason that the Note 8 is going to feature an infinity display and dual cameras. Also, the company will try to recover from the losses caused by the Note 7.
Talking about the specifications, the Note 8 will comes with a 6.3-inch Infinity Display (AMOLED) just like the S8 and S8+. There is going to be 6GB of RAM, Snapdragon 835 (or Exynos 8895), 12MP+12MP dual rear cameras. One thing that is going to separate the Note 8 and S8 in terms of the design from the back is that the cameras will be placed horizontally on the Note 8, to the left of flash and HR sensor. And yes, the fingerprint scanner is still going to be on the back at the same position i.e to the right of the camera module. Lastly, the phone will feature a 3,300mAh battery. Black, Blue, and Gold are gonna be the color options at the beginning.
