Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy Note 7

Samsung is rumoured to be launching its much-anticipated Galaxy Note 8 at the end of August. The device will succeed the Note 7, which was a fantastic device until its battery issues destroyed its reputation and left it for dead.

Nothing official has been announced regarding the Note 8's specs from Samsung itself but there have been plenty of rumours to help us see how it might compare to the Note 7. With that in mind, here are the two devices neck-in-neck, based on the speculation.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy Note 7: What's the rumoured difference?

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Note 7: Design

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was a beautiful device featuring a metal and glass sandwich design, a dual-edge display and a singular camera lens on the rear with the flash positioned alongside it on the right. As it was a Note device, it also featured the S-Pen stylus that had a slot built into the design zte parts .

A home button with a embedded fingerprint sensor was situated below the display on the front and it measured 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9mm and hit the scales at 169g. Like the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Note 7 was also IP68 water and dust resistant.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumoured to be taking some of its design cues from the Galaxy S8 and S8+, offering an almost all-screen front, a dual-edge display again and a metal and glass sandwich design with a built-in stylus. If this is the case, expect significantly reduced bezels compared to the Note 7.

Reports and renders suggest the new Note will be slightly thicker than the S8 and S8+, though exact measurements have yet to be leaked. Some reports did originally suggest the Note 8 would have a fingerprint sensor built into the display but it is now thought the sensor will be positioned on the rear next to a dual-camera setup. The Note 8 is also expected to be IP68 water and dust resistant like its predecessor.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Note 7: Display

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 featured a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED dual-edge display, which is the same size as all the previous Note devices from the Note 3 onwards.

It had an aspect ratio of 16:9 and it offered a Quad HD resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 518ppi. The Note 7 was also the first to introduce HDR compliancy in a zte replacement parts , making it compatible with HDR content on Netflix and Amazon Video, even if it was a feature a little before its time due to lack of content.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is reported to be increasing the display size to 6.3-inches, which would make it a little larger than the 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S8+, though we're not expecting the footprint to change much as the aspect ratio is also reported to be the same as the S8+ at 18.5:9.

It is thought the new Note will also have the same Infinity Display as the S8 and S8+ models, meaning an AMOLED panel again with a dual-edge display, though the resolution is thought to be increasing to 4K.

Expect Mobile HDR to be on board again too, this time with a little more purpose.
