With the unfortunate result of the Galaxy Note7 smartphone last year, it's apparent that Samsung will be focusing on developing a better phablet device for 2017. The latest rumors suggest that Samsung will feature the Galaxy Note8 with the Snapdragon 836 processor.
If these reports are true, then the Samsung Galaxy Note8 will be the first smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 836. The processor is yet to be officially announced by Qualcomm and is said to feature eight cores that are clocked at 2.5 GHz speed. That said, rumors also indicate that the LG V30 and the next-gen Google Pixel smartphone will be powered by the same processor. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note8 after a couple of months during the IFA 2017.
Previous rumors also indicate that the Galaxy Note8 will feature an Infinity display that’s similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, along with an embedded fingerprint scanner within the display, a dedicated Bixby button, AKG-tuned speakers, and a dual-lens camera on the rear. While this rumor has yet to be officially confirmed, Samsung has always sold their Galaxy flagship smartphones with Exynos processors in the UAE.
