Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be the very first smartphone in the world to be powered by the Snapdragon 836, as per a latest report.
Previously, the South Korean company launched the Galaxy S8 devices with Qualcomm’s currently most powerful chipset, Snapdragon 835, so it is a possibility that the company might be trying to one-up the processor specification in its next product. Alongside the more powerful processor, the Note 8 is said to have a larger 6.3-inch display which would look similar to the one on the S8 and will maintain the same aspect ratio of 18.5:9. It would be an almost all-screen display with very less bodywork at the top and bottom of the phone and no physical button whatsoever.
If the next Note indeed comes out with the Snapdragon 836, the performance will outdo the Galaxy S8 duo. The processor will have the highest clock speed of any smartphone processor till date at 2.5GHz with eight-core design. Other than the Note 8, Google Pixel 2 and LG V30 are also likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 836.
The Note 8 will be the first Samsung phone with dual rear camera and a probable screen integrated fingerprint sensor.
