There is no word on the release date yet although the abovementioned site expects the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active to turn up before the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launches on August 23. Hence, the SM-N950U that has appeared on FCC is the US edition of the Galaxy Note 8. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be the second flagship unveiling since the Galaxy Note 7 disaster, which forced the company to recall millions of units and start an investigation to find what caused the fires and explosions of the phablets. This device is widely believed to be the first to feature Samsung's foldable/rollable display technology, which has been previewed at industry events over the last couple of years.
The FCC docs don't provide much these days, but do confirm the SM-950U model, much like the Galaxy S8 and S8+ that also had G950U and G955U versions. Both the devices feature the same aspect ratio i.e. 16:9.
The render gives a great look at the upcoming device, while the technical specifications fall in line with what many users are expecting. On the storage front, the smartphones pack 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of internal storage. As Samsung said "Do bigger things" in its invite images, a slightly bigger 6.3-inch Infinity Display (narrow bezels and taller-than-usual frame) is expected on the smartphone. Especially for Galaxy Note 7 refugees waiting for the next Note. For the Galaxy Note 8 too, it is expected to go ahead with the same strategy. And like the Galaxy S8 that came before it, the Galaxy Note 8 will have four buttons around its sides for volume, power, and Bixby activation.
On the rear, Ghostek shows a dual-lens camera array. On the other hand, the "Perspective View" and "Background Effect" features will offer a variety of editing tools based on the dual-camera setup. It will also become possible to adjust objects within the frame of the camera, effectively displaying them as if they were being photographed from a different angle.
