As the tech giant that it is, Samsung has begun preparation for the Galaxy Note 8 quite some time ahead of its planned released. It is obvious that the Korean tech company is betting big on the success of this particular smartphone, in order to rectify its mistake with the previous iteration, which was the Galaxy Note 7.

Although it was originally well received, all good press blew up for the device (literally) due to the handset’s peculiar hardware problems which made it explode. This forced Samsung to recall the units and begin mapping out the next installment in the Note series.

In this article, we’ll take a look at what the new Samsung Galaxy Note device will offer, and how it will do against another top tier choice, the Huawei Mate 9 Pro.


Talks point out a potential 5.7 inch display which will no doubt feature a pretty high quality resolution and most likely the AMOLED technology.

On the other side we have the Huawei Mate 9 which features a smaller 5.5 inch display that uses a 2560 x 1440 resolution. Both screens are highly competitive in today’s market and offer a great viewing experience.


In terms of processing power, the Note 8 will presumably rely on the services of the Snapdragon 835 unit from Qualcomm, which is a 10 nm chip. We are expecting the minimum of 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage that can be boosted up to 128 GB. The battery on this handset is expected to be top notch and preferably not explosive.

The same memory specs are featured on the Mate 9 Pro, with the exception of a bigger max storage cap of 256 GB. If the Huawei device has a 4000 mAh battery, you can expect something similar from Samsung’s offering.

The Mate 9 features a 2.5 GHz, octa core processing unit that handles pretty much anything you throw at it, making the device a tough competitor for an upcoming Note 8 which is looking for market dominance.
