Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leak hints at a 3,300mAh battery under the hood

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be launched on August 23, and will start shipping in September.


There is barely any detail about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8, that has not been leaked yet. From design language to the guts of the phone, by now we know it all. Especially after the last leak, which came from a guy with knowledge of the final configuration of the phone. And now, just reasserting what has been already leaked, is an alleged Galaxy Note 8 battery that has surfaced online.

According to the leaked image, which was shared by /Leaks, two Samsung batteries have been revealed, which carry a capacity of 3,300mAh each, and are believed to fuel the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. This means, that the battery in the Galaxy Note 8 sits comfortably between the battery capacity of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, which come with 3,000mAh and 3,5000mAh batteries respectively.

This is not the first time we are coming across a speculation of the Galaxy Note 8 featuring a 3,300mAh battery, even the last leak shared by Evan Blass claimed that size of a battery for the smartphone. The leak also mentioned that the smartphone will be recharged either via the USB-C port or wirelessly. RELATED: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leak reveals everything you want to know about the smartphone

The same leaks by Blass also revealed that the Galaxy Note 8 will be water and dust proof with IP68-certification. Design-wise, the Galaxy Note 8 will be a near doppelganger of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. In fact, with a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy Note 8 is barely larger than the Galaxy S8+. The display of the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a resolution of 1440×2960 pixels in a 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The device will measure 162.5×74.6mm, with an 8.5mm thickness.

The Galaxy Note 8 is believed to be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 8895 chipset worldwide, except in the US, where it will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset. The processor of the Galaxy Note 8 will be accompanied by 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage (and a microSD expansion slot). RELATED: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ‘final’ design leaked ahead of August 23 launch

In terms of optics, the Galaxy Note 8 will sport a dual-camera setup at the back, which is likely to include a pair of 12-megapixel sensors, out of which the primary one would be a wide-angle one with an f/1.7 aperture and dual-pixel auto-focus, while the secondary would be a telephoto lens with f/2.4 and enables a 2x optical zoom. Up front, it will feature an 8-megapixel sensor and an f/1.7 auto-focus lens.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is scheduled to launch on August 23 in New York. It is expected to be available in Midnight Black and Maple Gold colors in the first shipment in September, followed by Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue variants eventually. The publication also suggests that the Galaxy Note 8 will cost nearly €1,000 in Europe (Rs 75,000 approximately). ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to Lenovo K8 Note: 6 smartphones to launch in August 2017
