The Galaxy Note8 launch is just a month away, and as the date approaches, we are getting a better picture of what to expect.
Last week, we learned that the Note8 would be powered by a Snapdragon 835 despite some rumors that it might feature Qualcomm's yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 836. However, it seems that Qualcomm will debut the Snapdragon 836 with the Google Pixel 2. We saw the same scenario last year when Qualcomm debuted the Snapdragon 821 with Google's Pixel.
The Note8 should also feature a dual camera, and unless the company launches the Galaxy C10 within the next month, the Note8 could be Samsung's first phone with a dual camera setup.
Now, a well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that the Note8 should have a dual camera with a 3x telephoto lens. According to him, the device will feature one 13MP sensor for the wide-angle cam and a 12MP sensor for the telephoto. Both sensors will feature optical image stabilization, something difficult to accomplish in a dual camera system.
The Galaxy Note8 will be unveiled on August 23rd, and earlier reports are suggesting that the phone might come with a high price tag of somewhere between $1,000 and $1,100.
