First up, SamMobile, citing sources, said that Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy Note 8 with its Experience software version 8.5 instead of the version 8.1 now running on the Galaxy S8.

In less than a week, we'll get to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The company published the first official teaser this week, but it didn't reveal much about the phone.

The next Galaxy Note is rumoured to sport a horizontally placed, 12MP dual camera setup, along with the fingerprint sensors placed next to the cameras. It can be recalled that past year, the Galaxy Note 7 was recalled due to reported faulty batteries and caused the phone to catch on fire. Notably, this differs from an earlier report that said that the smartphone can offer up to 3X optical zoom. According to the source, Samsung is planning to make the updated software available to those devices, but it could take two or more months for it to make its way to the Galaxy S8 line.

Additionally, SamMobile says that the Experience 8.5 running on the Galaxy Note 8 will come with improvements to the way iris and face recognition are handled.

These reports are based on the latest sighting of the alleged Note 8 on the popular benchmarking website Geekbench.

The smartphone will ship with a large 6.4-inch QHD+Super AMOLED Infinity display that's actually bigger than Galaxy S8 Plus. In the U.S., the smartphone is expected to come with a Snapdragon 835 SoC, as usually happens with Samsung flagship devices. The Note 8 is also confirmed to arrive with 6GB RAM and Android 7.1.1 Nougat, all of which results in a single core score of 1984 and a multi core score of 6116.

In terms of having many features, the Galaxy Note family has rarely disappointed - and so will the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8. However, rest of the specifications are same as that on GFXBench.

The official Note 8 announcement is expected on August 23 at an event in NYC.
