Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Will Likely Be an Amazon India Exclusive

Samsung is set to unveil its next phablet in the Galaxy Note series on Wednesday. The Galaxy Note 8 has been pretty much detailed in every way over the many reports in the past few weeks. We know that the Galaxy Note 8 will look similar to Galaxy S8 in terms of its bezel-less design language. It has also been tipped that the phablet will be priced around EUR 1,000 (roughly Rs. 75,400) and will likely be made available for pre-orders starting August 24, and it looks like Amazon India will get the rights to sell the Galaxy Note 8 in the country.

The Galaxy Note 8 will likely be exclusive to Amazon India based on the “Galaxy Unpacked” bannerdisplayed on the e-commerce site. Interestingly, Samsung’s recent Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships were launched with Flipkart as the exclusive online partner. It still unclear whether the Galaxy Note 8 will also be available on Flipkart, but given the lack of promotional banner, it’s safe to say that it will be an Amazon exclusive.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Will Likely Be an Amazon India ExclusiveSamsung’s newest flagship is expected to sport a 6.3-inch QHD (1440×2960 pixels) Infinity Display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, which is marginally bigger than the Galaxy S8+. Past leaks suggest that it will be available in eight colour variants – Midnight Black, Arctic Silver, Orchid Gray/Violet, Coral Blue, Dark Blue, Deep Sea Blue, Pink, and Gold colour variants.

The Galaxy Note 8 is tipped to be powered by Exynos 8895 SoC globally, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the US and select other regions. It is also expected to come with a dual camera setup with two 12-megapixel sensors. The fingerprint sensor will be placed next to the camera setup similar to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. It will likely be offered in a 6GB+64GB configuration, but a 256GB storage variant has also been suggested. The handset is expected to measure 162.5×74.6×8.5mm. Galaxy Note 8 has been tipped to house a 3300mAh battery that can be charged either wirelessly or through USB Type-C.

The Galaxy Unpacked 2017 event will begin at 8.30pm IST (11am EDT in New York), and can be live streamed on Samsung India’s website.
