New Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leak shows off the phablet from every angle possible

The new leaked image shows off a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 from every angle possible, also revealing a horizontally placed dual camera setup.

Now that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has been confirmed for a global launch on 23 August. It was expected that the frequency of leaks would increase over time as the launch date nears. And so it happened that Forbes got their hands on another leaked image that comes from another case-maker Ghostek, which reveals a few more details about the device. But there's more.

The leaked renders reveal what is said to be the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, set to launch ahead of the IFA Berlin this year. While the design (despite being hidden in the case) appears to be in line with previous leaks, the dual camera setup is a bit different in this one.

The leaked image shows off a horizontal dual camera setup as opposed to the previously leaked vertical dual camera setup. As of now there are no details on how Samsung plans on using the dual cameras (for optical zoom, wide-angle shooting or bokeh images).

There's also a mention of that large 6.3-inch display that has been tipped in the past as well. According to the report, Forbes claims that these renders should be very close to the final design.

Apart from the leaked images, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has also been received by certification by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as reported by Android Authority.

As per the filing, a device tagged as the SM-N950 is listed to provide support for GSM and CDMA bands and will obviously be compatible with all US carriers.
