Additionally, social media is awash with people sharing their 10 cents’ worth. So what if Samsung does decide to keep the Note series alive? We’re going to try to dig through the noise and determine what the Galaxy Note 8’s specs may be.
Galaxy Note 8: what will have to change?
To answer this question, we don’t need to have much imagination. Just look at the apparent reason the Note 7 was recalled. Its battery was at fault, with users from different parts of the world seeing the battery explode or emit noxious gas. To restore consumer goodwill, Samsung has promised a thorough investigation.
However, many believe the battery to be fully to blame, and any future Galaxy Note 8 should address this. Rumors suggest that the Korean giant could move back to using removable batteries, which would be a positive move, but only if the investigation proves the Note 7’s battery was at fault.
SnapDragon 835 chipset
The latest rumor has Samsung partnering with Qualcomm and working on a Snapdragon 835 chip. This rumor suggests that a 10nm (nanometer) production process will be used for the Galaxy Note 8 chip.
Furthermore, it will reportedly have features designed to help the phablet’s battery be more efficient and safe. Also the Snapdragon 835 will reportedly offer Quick Charge, which could be up to 20% faster than the charging capability in previous devices, meaning that it could reach a 50% charge in as little as 15 minutes.
