There is a new rumor emerging from China which claims that Samsung’s upcoming phablet offering Galaxy Note 8 will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 chipset. While Qualcomm is yet to make any official announcement regarding the existence of such a processor, it is rumored to bring slight improvements over the current flagship Snapdragon 835 SoC which is available on devices like Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, Sony Xperia XZ Premium, and HTC U11.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 is said to feature a maximum clock speed of 2.5GHz as compared to 2.45GHz on Snapdragon 835. It will be coupled with a GPU clocked at 740MHz which should offer improved graphic performance. Other than the Galaxy Note 8, the upcoming and yet to be announced processor is said to come with LG V30 and Google Pixel/Pixel XL successors. It seems like Qualcomm has plans to repeat the same strategy which we saw last year when it released slightly improved Snapdragon 821 processor as a successor to Snapdragon 820 SoC.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, this is the latest speculation about the phablet which has already been part of various leaks and rumors so far. It is said to sport a 6.3-inch Quad HD+ Infinity Display with dual rear cameras and Android Nougat 7.1.1. One of the two cameras on the back is said to be a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with Dual Pixel autofocus and another one to be a 13-megapixel telephoto lens. The upcoming phablet will be replacing the notoriously famous Galaxy Note 7 from last year.
