Features similar design to Galaxy S8+

The purported Galaxy Note 8 has also surfaced on the HTML5Test benchmark with model number SM-N950F, which measures browser performance.

However, as is usually the case with these matters, nothing is simple!

The launch of Galaxy Note 8 is expected at IFA 2017 at an Unpacked event.

The Galaxy Note 8 will undoubtedly be a powerful performer, but fans of Android devices may be slightly disappointed with indications regarding the display in the handset. Compared to the Note 7, this is a massive upgrade in screen size and quality, just like the Galaxy S8 versus the S7. Samsung on Friday, June 16 announced an assistant preview in which some S8 and S8 Plus owners can test Bixby's voice features before anyone else, The Verge reveals.

Speaking of the display screen, the Note 8 will reportedly come with a 6.3-inch (or 6.4-inch) QHD+ panel with the same curved design as the S8 as well as 18.5:9 aspect ratio. So it seems like the screen-to-body ratio champion is about to hit the market.

The reports specifically mentioned that the Note 8 will break its covers somewhere in the middle of August.

Samsung also failed to fully develop the embedded fingerprint sensor for the Galaxy S8, which shipped back in April with a rear-mounted sensor.

Meanwhile, in the east Asian marketplace, the proprietary Exynos 8895 processor will be utilized. At this stage it seems to only be open to U.S. customers and it seems to be basically an early beta for Samsung to test it out in the wild.

Numerous leaks are circulating over the internet related to the upcoming flagship device which will beat Samsung's own Galaxy S series. Pan himself also believes the same thing, claiming that Apple will be the first foreign (outside China) manufacturer to accomplish this tech, according to Mashable.

If the note 8 does include a dual-lens snapper it will place it one step ahead of the S8.
