Samsung has arguably got more to prove this year than anytime before after the situation with exploding Galaxy Note 7 series, which could’ve meant the end of the whole line of Note devices. However, a new leak is showing that they’re headed in the right direction.
China’s Weibo website showed a leak of the supposed Samsung Note 8. The biggest surprise here was the dual-camera setup visible in the screenshots. They are spaced out vertically with a LED flash under them. The display is going to be the same one as the one used in the current Galaxy S8.
One thing that is clearly gone is the fingerprint scanner. This could either be interpreted as either getting rid off it for good, or that it’s built-in in the phone. It could also be missing in the WIP version, with the fingerprint scanner coming later on in in the development.
Some other rumored specifications for Galaxy Note 8 suggest a 6.3″ Super AMOLED QHD screen, 12 MP and 13 MP dual cameras in the rear, with 3x zoom, a larger battery than the previous model (let’s hope there aren’t going to be any explosions), and, as with all Note models, the S Pen.
