Samsung introduced the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones last month. Soon after the launch, fans considered the Galaxy S8 the king of the market. While it surely is the top contender in the smartphone market at the moment, it is soon going to face tough competition from one of its own family members. The South Korean tech giant is expected to launch the successor to the Note 7 -- the Note 8 -- in September this year. The device is said to have similar features when compared to the Galaxy S8, but with a slightly larger display, a stylus pen, and a dual rear camera setup.

The former will also be priced higher, leading many to question whether it would be better to spend a little more to acquire a phablet instead.

Battle of the beasts

As mentioned previously, both the smartphones are expected to be almost similar. The ‘phablet’ style device is going to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor — just like Galaxy S8. Moreover, the device is also going to pack a fingerprint scanner on the back panel. Including a similar curved-edge design but slightly larger display. But when the same deal is closely looked at, one can spot differences between the two. Apart from the fact that the Note 8 is going to arrive with the company’s iconic S Pen stylus, the former will also be packing more RAM storage and a dual rear camera setup.

A report by Tech Times claimed that sources close to the matter stated that Samsung’s phablet is going to the most expensive offering made by the company to date. It seems like the Note 8 will fall in the range bracket of $900 to $1,000. However, that does not necessarily answer the question whether upgrading from Galaxy S8 to Note 8 is really worth the price.

In terms of connectivity, the device could also feature a USB-C Type.

What Galaxy Note 8 rumors say

The primary highlight of the samsung galaxy Note 8 smartphone will perhaps be the fact that it is going to come with a dual rear camera setup. It’s merely a rumor right now and the company hasn’t officially confirmed it yet but if it turns out to be true then this will perhaps be the first time that Samsung will be seen integrating this feature in any of its devices.

Moreover, the phablet has a lot of expectations to meet. Considering that its predecessor, Note 7 did exactly make a favorable impression on the fans, thanks to the Note 7 fiasco — Samsung hopes to revive its lost glory through the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. Overall, both are great phones.
