Samsung Galaxy Note 8 SM-N950 Firmware Download

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 SM-N950 Firmware Download – Samsung officially announces the new generation of Samsung Galaxy phablet them, Note 8. The devices begin shipping in September 2017 with a premium price tag of around $900 (the full retail price for the version that was not opened by the factory). This is really a great step forward for Samsung, given the fact that they can only lose the series note after the report hit the battery last year. The Samsung scandal is handled professionally and now we have the Galaxy Note 8.

Like the previous generation, notes 8 is targeting business users because it combines high-end specification, display massive, a suite of productivity, and stylus. If you must restore the Notes 7, now you can upgrade to Notes 8 with many important fixes. This phone is fueled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 835 or Samsung Exynos 8895, 6 GB RAM, 64 GB inward capacity with microSD card space, voice Assistant Bixby, and the battery is 3300mAh. The design is also enhanced with 6.3-inch Quad HD screen Super AMOLED Display, Infinity is not only larger but also looks leaner than other smartphones on the market. This is also the first time we see the dual camera setup on a Samsung phone; both are active and have the lens optical image stabilization. Wide angle lenses have aperture f/1.7 and telephoto lenses have aperture-f/2.4. You will see some tricks such as Live cameras Focus or Dual Capture.

Similar to previous releases, notes 8 also comes with several different model numbers available for some operators and certain regions. The model number will determine which processors built in, you could have a Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895. Most of the country will receive the version Exynos but few other countries in need, such as CDMA chip the US or China, will have a Snapdragon 835. Both have Samsung 10nm LPE process and actually has a very similar performance so you can not see the difference during normal use. Now, let us examine all the model number from Samsung Galaxy Note 8. All numbers beginning with BC-N950 however suffixes is different, depending on the market. So, we’ll have some models such as the BC N950W, BC-N9500, BC N9508, BC N950F, BC-N950 S/K/L, or SM-N950FD.
