Catching everyone by a bit of surprise, Samsung announced sometime in April that the company has plans to release the successor to the now discontinued Galaxy Note 7 later this year.
The upcoming device dubbed Galaxy Note 8 has seen its share of leaks in the past and now, a fresh report has also added that the device could bring a display-embedded fingerprint scanner and a vertical dual camera setup at the rear side.
Going by the image, the device packs a dual-camera setup aligned vertically at the center on the rear side. Also, there is a flashlight module present below the camera setup.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 handset has already been earlier tipped to sport a dual camera setup, which will consist a 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS with dual photodiode sensor, and a 13-megapixel telephoto CIS sensor.
Additionally, the device will support 3X optical zoom, come with dual 6P lenses, and support dual OIS as well. Visibly, the Samsung Note 8 had previously been pegged as the first Samsung device to offer a dual camera setup, but a recent leak claims that Samsung Galaxy C10 could be the flagbearer of Samsung’s dual camera technology instead.
Also notable, was the missing fingerprint scanner on the back or the front of the handset hinting that the new Samsung phablet could finally sport the widely-rumored display-embedded fingerprint scanner.
As per specs, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to pack a 6.3-inch display, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC in the US, and the Exynos 8895 chipset in other markets
