Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Leaked Photo; Could This Be The Note Series', Saving Grace?

Apr 11, 2017 06:06 AM EDT

One thing that we all should know by now about the internet is that there can never be enough of speculations, rumors, or gossips especially when it involves big names like Samsung. Prior to the official launch of the company's current flagship - the Galaxy S8 series, leaked images have flooded the internet on weekly or maybe close to daily basis. And they turned out to be true. Perhaps the same thing is happening again with the upcoming phablet Samsung Note 8.

An image provided obtained by a Chinese source (without any further information) has appeared. At this stage, there has been no confirmation, of course, and if anything else, the image does look a lot like the recently launched Galaxy S8+. However, it is more than likely that Note 8 will indeed share the same specifications with the current Samsung flagship - Bixby, smaller bezels and no physical home button.

Although there is just a little information so far about the phablet's specifications, industry watchers expect that the Samsung Note 8 could be powered by the Exynos 8895 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, just like the Galaxy S8 series. Other information about the future phablet (which can be regarded as just speculation at this stage) includes 6GB of RAM and true 4K Display.

Samsung has been hit hard last year when its phablet phone Note 7 (which has been discontinued) randomly exploded due to the problems with its battery. Samsung has pulled the model out from the market twice before finally concluded to end the device production, as well as spending a considerable amount of time to investigate the issues before releasing the official findings to the public.

The unfortunate series of Note 7 has also caused Samsung to delay the official announcement of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, due to the safety issue. Let's hope that the Galaxy Note 8 will not be going to have the same fate as its predecessor.
