Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – Battery life could be major issue

Fans are getting more and more Galaxy Note 8 news as the upcoming release date draws near, with updates flooding in on the price and specs. However, there is one bit of news that has leaked which could suggest that the battery life could be a major problem for users.The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could have a smaller battery than the Samsung Galaxy S8+ despite it being a much beefier smartphone.

On Chinese social network Weibo, one user claimed the Note 8 will have a 3,300mAh battery – while the Galaxy S8+ has a larger 3,500mAh battery. The insider said despite having a smaller battery the Note 8 will have a much better 6.3 inch 2K Super AMOLED curved screen. The Weibo user, who was quoted by Korean media, said the Galaxy Note 8’s screen will have a 18:5:9 aspect ratio.

They said the Note 8 will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, have 6GB of RAM, feature dual real cameras (both 12MP) and will support the S Pen. As a comparison, the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2 inch Super AMOLED curved display.

Having a crisper, larger screen but a smaller battery would surely impact the Note 8 battery life – unless Samsung come up with some clever software fixes. The Weibo user also claimed the Note 8 would be available in black, blue and gold colour schemes.However, as with all pre-release leaks the info should be taken with a pinch of salt until there is official confirmation from Samsung.

Other reports in Korean media claimed the Note 8 would be available in a 64GB version and a 128GB version. It’s expected to allow users to expand the memory by up to 256GB via a microSD card. That report quoted a Samsung Electronics official, who said the Galaxy Note 8 could cost up $1,100 (£850).

This would position it as more expensive than the Galaxy Note 7, which launched in the UK at a price of £749. This price point was backed up renowned tipster Evan Blass who recently said the Note 8 would cost almost €1,000 (£878).

This would make the Galaxy Note 8 the most expensive phone Samsung has ever released.

Blass also said the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would have a release date in September 2017. The Note 8 news comes after Samsung accidentally announced a brand new version of the Galaxy S8 on one of their official websites.

Samsung revealed the existence of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active on the Samsung Knox website. Like with previous Active models, it’s a more rugged smartphone which has a far bulkier design that stops it from shattering.

Unlike its namesake, the Galaxy S8 Active will not have an Infinity Display.

It remains to be seen if the Galaxy S8 Active will launch in the UK, as the S7 Active was only available in the US with one carrier – AT&T.
