The official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is not too far.
We know that the Galaxy Unpacked event will happen on August 23 and that the upcoming flagship device will be launched at the event.
With just a few more days left for the launch, the Galaxy Note 8 has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmarking database by Android Headlines. The device carrying the model number SM-N950F has been spotted on the listing thereby confirming some of the key specifications.
According to the benchmark listing, the Samsung device with the model number SM-N950F will be released in Europe and other global markets with a single SIM card slot.
Furthermore, it is revealed to feature 6GB RAM and Exynos 8895 SoC which was used by the Galaxy S8 (with the model number SM-G950F) as well. While the use of the Exynos processor does not come as a huge surprise as we have come across the same in many speculations and leaks in the past, the Galaxy Note 8 will become the first high-end Samsung smartphone to launch with 6GB of RAM.
The Geekbench listing does not stop with the hardware details. It further reveals that the Galaxy Note 8 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS tipping that the handset will be launched with this version of the platform.
However, we can expect the device to receive the Android 8.0 O update in the coming months as Google releases the update officially.
Going by the previous reports, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to feature a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display with 18:5:9 aspect ratio similar to Galaxy S8 smartphones.
The device is said to feature a pressure-sensitive display.
Plus it will be the first Samsung device to feature a dual camera setup at its rear with two 12MP lenses and fixed optical zoom. We have also heard that the device might be launched in eight color variants with upgraded S Pen stylus.
