Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is found to have an expensive secret

When Samsung Galaxy Note 8 came into the markets, everyone was very happy about the way Samsung introduced it to us but this might not sound convincing but there are some evident secrets which Samsung has hidden from all there customers. So, let;s exactly figure out what's wrong in Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which everyone is talking about: 

Missing in-screem Fingerprint Reader:

More bad news Samsung fans as following solid leaks which largely confirmed the Galaxy Note 8 will miss out on a game changing (and iPhone 8 matching) in-screen fingerprint reader, is new information that the phone will be even more expensive than originally thought

Expected Price of Galaxy Note 8:

  • Quoting an unnamed Samsung Electronics official, Korean site Osen says it has learned retail pricing for the entry level 64GB Galaxy Note 8 will start from as high as $1,100 (Rs. 75000 approx)
  • This is $250 (Rs.10000) more than a 64GB Galaxy S8 Plus and $130 (Rs. 5500)  more than a 256GB iPhone 7 Plus.
  • Osen says Samsung will also introduce a 128GB Galaxy Note 8 which, presumably, is going to be even more expensive.
  • Osen states that price increases for certain components are behind the (significant) price rise, though it stopped short of naming specific parts.
  • Interestingly while the iPhone 8 will also be the most expensive iPhone ever made, much of its cost increase has been tied to the integration of Touch ID into the display - something the Galaxy Note 8 will miss out on.

Expected Launch Date for Samsung Galaxy Note 8:

  • Our Sources confirms, despite the introduction of a larger 128GB storage tier, the Galaxy Note 8 will still support expandable microSD.
  • Furthermore the Galaxy Note 8 will still launch in August (26th to be exact), the same month as its ill fated predecessor.
  • This means no generational delay and retaining the slight lead it has over Apple’s traditional September launch date for new iPhones.

Expected Specifications and Features:

  • It is also worth pointing out the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be Samsung’s first premium dual camera smartphone
  • Galaxy Note 8 will have 6GB of RAM (50% more than the Galaxy S8)
  • A massive 6.3-inch Infinity Display and top of range Snapdragon and Exynos chipsets (depending on where you live).

Whether this is enough to challenge Apple’s redesigned iPhone 8 or reduce the momentum of Google with upcoming supersized Pixel 2 remains to be seen. But with such a high price tag, simply not exploding would be a good start…
