Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is in the news again, and this time, the South Korean company has itself posted a teaser image. The picture showing the purported front panel of the upcoming flagship has been tweeted by the official Twitter handle of Samsung Exynos. Moreover, a fresh render video of has surfaced in Weibo showing the Galaxy Note 8 in all its glory.
Both the sources confirm that the Note 7’s successor will come with a Galaxy S8-like Infinity Display and a premium build quality. The render footage has completely revealed the design of the upcoming flagship.
It seems that Samsung will place the volume rocker keys and the power button at the right with only the Bixby button on the left. The SIM tray will probably sit on the top and the S-Pen slot at the bottom.
The exposed video suggests that Samsung might place the fingerprint scanner at back of the Note 8 just like in the Galaxy S8 and S8+. It looks like the South Korean tech giant has still not bothered to fix one of the most criticized features of its present flagships.
The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be Samsung’s first smartphone to rock a dual camera setup. According to rumors, the Note 8 might come with a dual 13MP + 13MP rear shooter loaded with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and optical zoom.
