Samsung to sell off refurbished Galaxy Note 7s

Popular leakster Evan Blass revealed on VentureBeat that Samsung is now informing partners that the Note 8 will be "its most expensive cellphone yet" with its retail price of €999 (around $1,100). Even from the images, one can safely guess that this is not a small smartphone. We're expecting a new Infinity Display and possibly an even better screen-to-body ratio than the Galaxy S8's class-leading 83%, but the back of the phone is still something of a mystery. The device, which comes with a battery capacity of 3,300 mAh, allows users to make a consecutive call of 25 hours, along with LTE-data streaming of 17 hours. However, according to some rumors, the phone would be priced at 699 CNY.

Until Samsung officially confirms the final specifications for the Galaxy Note 8, sources suspect that it will sport the same internal hardware found on the Galaxy S8. The South Korean electronics giant has already released the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus and is expected to follow-up with a phablet variant soon.

Sadly, the Galaxy Note 8 may come with a very hefty price tag. The sensors are said to be lined up horizontally, with each supposedly sporting independent optical image stabilization.

Both the Galaxy J5 2017 and Galaxy J7 2017 are available in Black, Blue, and Gold color variants.

What about the fingerprint sensor? However, it appears that this time, there is a greater distance between the fingerprint sensor and camera lens.

Samsung Galaxy Stellar 2 will reportedly be backed by a 3500mAh battery and the phone will also support QuickCharge 2.0 technology.

What we can glean from the leaked material is that there are dual cameras and a fingerprint scanner on the rear of the smartphone. Hopefully, this will lead to less camera smudging than we've heard about on the company's current flagships. The rumours suggest that Samsung will host an event to unveil the new Note8, just like the last two Note launches.

A technical explanation for Samsung's decision undoubtedly exists, but we don't yet know what it is.
