With only a few days left for the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the handset has paid the visit to the Geekbench. The benchmarking data reveals the presence of 6GB RAM coupled with Exynos 8895 processor. The model number has been listed as SM-N950F and the upcoming handset will be loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
According to Android Headlines, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be available in Europe with the model number SM-N950F. However, the company will most likely release a single SIM card slot in other regions.
The integration of Exynos 8895 processor assumes importance with the fact that the same chipset is used in the Galaxy S8 series released early 2017. While the single-core score of the Galaxy Note 8 gets a value of 1984, the multi-core score of the forthcoming device gets a better value of 6116. Hence, the phone will be capable of improved performance during gaming sessions.
The addition of 6GB RAM will prove as a great benefit for gamers since it will provide lag free performance. It remains to be seen as to how Samsung integrates the internal components after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. With one processor, the Note 8 includes a processor consisting of 8 cores with a motherboard with model number universal8895.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, the device is expected to get Android O update by the end of 2017. We expect that the Note 8 will be the first handset to get Android O update. Apparently, the Google Pixel series comes preloaded with Android O.
Talking about the specifications, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED bezel-less pressure-sensitive display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The handset will have a dual camera comprising of 12MP sensors with support for fixed optical zoom. There are reports that the phone will be made available in eight color options paired with an enhanced S Pen stylus.
