The 3D-printed model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has spotted on Chinese social media website Weibo. The source leaked three real-life images of the Galaxy Note 8 and also shared a press render of the upcoming gadget in what looks like a Coral Blue device. 

With the latest images on Weibo, a video of this Samsung Galaxy Note 8 dummy also exists, which shows it next to the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. With the dummy, it is clear that the new version of Samsung's high-end phablet boasts a vertically placed dual-camera setup on the back, with what looks like a dual LED flash underneath.

While the reference device resembles both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 Edge, the thicker shape of its physical Home button keep out the latter while its screen size indicates it also isn't the former. According to past rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have a 6.3-inch display panel that means the Galaxy S6 would look much smaller next to it than the phone featured in the leaked dummy.

The latest leak also confirms the previous rumors around the smartphone, which claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will boast a bezel-less dual edge curved display and dual rear camera setup. According to 9to5Google, dual rear cameras in Galaxy Note 8 was earlier predicted by KGI Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that the addition could be "the most important upgrade" and even "better than that of iPhone 7 Plus, and likely match that of OLED iPhone."

There is also of great importance is the lack of a fingerprint scanner on the back or the front of the device. This means that Samsung has been able to fix the problem that prevented the company from embedding the biometric reader under the front display.

According to Phone Arena, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will come with a 6.3-inch display, powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset in the U.S., and the Exynos 8895 SoC just about everywhere else. It will come equipped with the S Pen. A 3700mAh battery will be in charge of keeping the lights on. The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be revealed between 1 to 6 September, during the 2017 IFA show in Berlin.
