So what do you think? Is this the upcoming Galaxy Note8, or just another mockup phone designed especially for this Exynos promotion?
Your guess is as good as mine. The image appeared yesterday on Samsung’s Official Twitter account promoting their Exynos 8895 SoC, which powers some versions of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, and is also widely expected to be inside the Note8.
Rumor has it however that the upcoming Note8 will look a lot like the above image, retaining most of the characteristics of the Galaxy S8 flagship but with a larger display, dual camera setup and S-Pen support. There are reports from “upstream component makers in Taiwan” claiming that the Galaxy Note8 will only become available in September at the earliest. Obviously this doesn’t say anything about the unveiling date, that’s why a recent information suggests that the phone will be unveiled on August 23, before the iPhone 8 launch scheduled for September.
