After the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note7 from last year, the Note8 is probably the most important device for Samsung to re-establish trust of consumers in its devices. While the company is enjoying the success of the S8 duo of smartphones, details and pictures of the Note8 have already started popping up online. The latest detail that has emerged is of two storage options planned for the phablet.
According to South Korean website OSEN, a Samsung official revealed that the Galaxy Note8 will have two storage variants, one with 64GB of internal storage and the other with 128GB. In addition to the internal storage, the device will have an expansion slot for microSD cards. The report mentions that the maximum storage can go up to 256GB with a memory card. Since the Galaxy S8 and S8+ already support 256GB cards, it should be safe to assume that the Note8 would as well.
The Galaxy Note7 that went on sale last year, before being pulled out from the market due to explosive battery issues, came in a single 64GB variant with expandable storage. We have already seen a leaked image from a case-maker showing off the Galaxy Note8 almost in its entirety, but there are still many details about the device that we don't know.
It is rumored that the Note8 will be one expensive device starting at €1000, and the 128GB variant will put an even deeper hole in customers' pockets if they choose to get one. Samsung is also expected to launch the refurbished version of the Galaxy Note7 in the coming week.
