Samsung has just introduced its new flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8, and following its announcement, it’s time to take a more detailed look at the phone’s specifications. The Galaxy Note 8 certainly has a lot to offer in this department, and is one of the most powerful devices out there at the moment, at least on paper. The Galaxy Note 8 is made out of metal and glass, while it comes with the S Pen stylus, just like its predecessors. Let’s take a look at the phone’s specs, shall we.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 sports a 6.3-inch QHD+ (2960 x 1440, 521ppi) Super AMOLED Infinity display.

The Galaxy Note 8 comes in two processor variants, one variant is fueled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor, and comes with the Adreno 540 GPU for graphics. This chip will be included in the Galaxy Note 8 which will reach the US market, and some other regions probably. Samsung’s Exynos 8895 64-bit octa-core chip will fuel the Galaxy Note 8 in a number of other markets, though Samsung didn't detail which regions exactly, though it’s worth noting that this chip comes with the Mali-G71 MP20 GPU. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 packs in 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and comes with 64GB, 128GB or 256GB of expandable storage, depending on where you buy it, while a 3,300mAh battery lies on the inside of this phablet, and it is not removable.
