The Note 8 looks strikingly similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ with almost bezel-less screen and curved screen on both edges. This leak comes almost a month before the scheduled Samsung Unpacked event

One interesting thing to note here is that the Note 8 packs a dual camera sensor setup in contrast to the single camera setup on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. We are not sure about the type of dual camera setup on the device but we can expect it to be similar to the setup on the iPhone where both camera sensors come with different focal lengths. One camera sensor captures regular images while the second camera sensor captures photos with optical zoom.

This is in line with a recent report by GSMArena where Samsung Electro-Mechanics leaked details on the camera sensor for the Note 8. According to the report, the smartphone is likely to sport a new feature called ‘Super Night Shot’ in addition to ‘3X optical zoom’ and ‘3D Depth’. Other features outlined in the report include ‘Background Effect’, and ‘Perspective View’.

The company has not removed the position of the fingerprint sensor on the back of the smartphone and it remains dangerously close to the dual camera setup on the back. We can expect the smartphone to come with two variants, the first one running Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 4 GB RAM while the second running Exynos 8895.
