Samsung ‘leaks’ an image its upcoming iPhone 8 rival

- July 15, 2017

Samsung is planning to launch a new smartphone to tackle Apple’s newest iPhone 8 upgrade this fall.
The Galaxy Note 8 is expected
to be available as early as next month, but thanks to a fresh  “leak” from one of its Twitter accounts, we don’t have to stay until then to get our first glimpse.

Samsung’s last Note device not that good because of multiple battery issues. The Galaxy Note 7 had a tendency to overheat and explode. After it was recalled for a second time and production was stopped it was suggested Samsung would give up on the Note line altogether.
But that won’t happen yet because Samsung is planning a Galaxy Note 8 for 2017, and rumor has it that the device will be made official  at an event in New york next month. The company will be keen to make it available very early as possible ahead of the Apple’s iPhone 8 launch.

We were already expecting the Note 8 to look like a Galaxy S8, only larger. Now an image posted by the official @SamsungExynos account on Twitter to promote its latest Exynos 8895 chipset all but confirms that will be the case.
Samsung doesn’t say it’s a Note 8, but it has no other devices on the market right now that looks like this. It’s looks like the Galaxy S8 and last year’s Note 7, with a curved, and edge-to-edge display and mind-blowing thin bezels.
Like the Galaxy S8, it has no Samsung logo above its display because there simply no room for one. It’s maybe that the physical button has also been removed in favor of a new pressure-sensitive button that sits under the Infinity Display.
Other features and specifications are likely to include iris scanning, a Quad HD or even 4K display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, wireless charging, water-resistance, and expandable storage.
It will, of course, also include an S Pen like its predecessors, and maybe a dedicated Bixby button so that users have instant access to new Samsung virtual assistant.
