Samsung is believed to be preparing a Galaxy Note 8 unveil for August, with Apple rumoured to follow suit and showcase the iPhone 8 the following month.
The Note 8 is widely expected to feature its own Infinity Display – much like the Galaxy S8 and S8+ – with a larger 6.2 inch AMOLED screen.
The Infinity Display takes the edge-to-edge display from the Galaxy S7 Edge to the next level, with the top and bottom bezels massively reduced in size.
Alleged leaked pictures of the Note 8 have emerged but the most recent shots could give us the clearest images yet of the Apple iPhone 8 rival.
Prominent Chinese tipster Ice Universe posted shots on Twitter of what is claimed to be the Galaxy Note 8.
And following on from the vast majority of rumours, it shows the Note 8 featuring a design similar to Galaxy S8.
The leaked pictures show a device looking similar to the Jet Black version of the infamous Note 7 but with a crystal clear Infinity Display.
Ice Universe has previously said the Note 8 would feature 6GB of RAM – but a special ‘Emperor’ edition would be released for the Chinese market.
This would feature 8GB RAM – with matches the market leading amounts of RAM on the OnePlus 5 128GB version.
The pictures come after the North Korean tech giant may have given fans an official preview of the Galaxy Note 8.
Samsung tweeted an image of a mysterious device and it’s got fans excited that it could be the first look at the Note 8.
The photo was posted on Twitter with the words “Do what you want. #Exynos will get things done,” and is aimed publicising this latest own-brand processor.
These brains are included in some versions of the Galaxy S8, however, the image in the tweet is not Samsung’s current flagship.
As soon as the photo was published, Samsung Note fans began speculating that Samsung has published the first look at the new Note 8
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is also widely rumoured to have one feature the Galaxy S8 and S8+ does not have – a dual camera set up.
It’s expected the Note 8 will have two 12 megapixel cameras, with a horizontal setup.
If this feature does come to the Galaxy Note 8, it would be a first for a Samsung device.
Apple introduced a dual camera set up with the iPhone 7 Plus last year, and since then OnePlus have also adopted the feature.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to have a release date in September, and is rumoured to cost around £850.
