New renders of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 surface online showing massive Infinity display

These could be the first official press renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phablet flagship.

On 15 July, 2017 Samsung tweeted the picture of its latest Exynos processor on top of a phone which many believe to be Samsung's latest flagship Galaxy Note 8. The phone is considered to be a direct competitor to the next generation iPhone, which is slated for launch this September.

There have been quite a few renders and leaks of the upcoming Samsung phablet by Slashleaks in the past. However this time, tipster UniverseIce, who had previously given accurate schematics of the Galaxy S8 in February, put out a tweet stating “Yes, this is Note8.” and attached three detailed images of the phone.

Slashleaks. The smartphone is expected to feature a gigantic 6.3-inch Infinity display. The front of the phone looks more or less the same as the Galaxy S8 and S8+ models with the very less bezels, a high screen-to-body ratio, and slightly less-rounded corners thanks to its massive size. What we have yet to see is the backside of the phone.

Mobile has put on sale the FlexiShield Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Gel Case, that shows a cavity for a fingerprint sensor at the back, hinting that it may not be integrated in the display as many would want. Also seen on the back is a bigger cutout for what appears to be a dual camera setup. The tweet also doesn't address the rumours surrounding the removal of the headphone jack. However, many other sources have said that the Note 8 will have a 3.5 mm jack alongside a Type-C port for data and charging. Ice Universe makes no claims about these renders coming directly from Samsung.
