In what might happen to be one of the biggest “Oops” moment in smartphone history, the Samsung Exynos’ Twitter account recently tweeted out an image of the Exynos 9 series mobile application processor accompanied by a rather intriguing smartphone in the background. It takes a lot from the current Samsung flagship with the super-slim forehead bezel coupled with a display that wraps around the edges but ultimately, the Galaxy S8 has a far more curved top which this device eschews in the favour of a more boxy design.

All things considered, Samsung might be teasing the Galaxy Note8 which is scheduled to be announced on the 23 August. And this indeed might be the first official glimpse at the upcoming phablet flagship considering the Galaxy Note range of smartphones have closely mirrored their current flagships’ design language whilst managing to look suitably unique.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is rumoured to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 or Samsung’s in-house Exynos 8895 series SoC depending on the region coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory. It will feature a 6.3-inch Infinity Display with the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio as the Galaxy S8 range of smartphones. The Note8 will also be Samsung’s first flagship bearing a dual camera setup at the back. All this hardware is supposedly powered by a 3300mAh battery unit and the smartphone is supposedly running on Android v.7.0, Nougat under Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz UI.

Apart from coming with a specialised version of TouchWiz optimised for work and productivity, the Note8 is expected to come with the now iconic S-Pen stylus for jotting down notes and doodling on the go. All in all the Samsung Galaxy Note8 remains to be one of the most anticipated handsets for this year and we would be sharing any information as soon as it is out.
