The Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s release date might be near as opposed to a popular rumor indicating a Q4 launch. If this is true, then we can expect to see a phablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 SoC and a fingerprint scanner at the back by August, according to the most recent rumors.
Galaxy Note 8 To Be World’s First Snapdragon 836 Device?
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was believed to have the same processor as its cousin, the Galaxy S8, until now. The flagship phablet usually has the same chipset as the flagship smartphone, but it seems that the South Korean company is adding a bit more power to the Note brand this time.
A report from GSM Arena stated that the Samsung phablet will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 SoC, a refreshed version of Snapdragon 835 in the latest flagships today. The Note 8 will then be the first device to sport it with the LG V30 and Google Pixel 2 following in the next months.
