After so many rumors, spy shots and renders, Samsung is about to release its new Galaxy Note series. A new entry flagship has already been spotted at FCC (Federal Communication Commission) getting certification. The brand makes another effort to overcome its total failure with the Galaxy Note 7 that turned out to be a disaster.
The leading brand has already thrown a launch event earlier this year to avoid the slightest chance of clashing with iPhone 8. The new device has already passed the FCC certification. Users may expect four different versions of the entry flagship. A little is known about upcoming gadgets. However, the lineup will include four separate variants:
- One version for the global market powered by an Exynos 8895 SoC
- Two US-based versions powered by Snapdragon 835
- A display variant with no wireless capabilities.
All versions have already received the FCC certification including SM-950U as the base unit.
In other words, we can actually expect two major versions instead of a bunch of new devices catered to specific carriers, which means a totally different approach for Samsung. It may sound surprising, but the production of the carrier version will take place in Korea. The rest of the gadgets from the lineup will be produced in Vietnam.
As for the details, a little is known about new Galaxy phablets. According to some trustworthy channels, the new device is bigger if compared with S8 models featuring 6.3-inch. Other specs include 64GB internal memory and 4GB of RAM. The hardware will be the same in S8 versions in addition to a dual camera system located at the back of the device.
A good news for all S Pen fans, the iconic stick is back! Although the Samsung representatives have officially announced the release date in the USA (August 23), Australian users will have a chance to pre-order the new device as well. The promotion of the new phablet starts on August 25.
