This is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in Midnight Black

What we're seeing on the left is likely the very first legitimate render of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 - a new high-end smartphone that Samsung will announce on August 23. We have high confidence in the authenticity of this image, as it's coming from Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), who's been revealing unannounced phones - with an incredible accuracy - for years now.

Reportedly, this is a Galaxy Note 8 (or Note8, as Samsung may want to write its name) in Midnight Black. For the record, the already released Galaxy S8 comes in this color, too. This render is pretty much similar to other images that have been floating around the web recently, showing a tall handset with a dual-curve screen and very little bezel around it.

Unfortunately, for now, we can't see the back of the Note 8. In any case, rumors have it that the phone's rear includes a dual camera, in addition to a fingerprint scanner (à la Galaxy S8).

As a reminder, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to sport a 2160 x 4428 pixels screen of around 6.3-inches, almost certainly becoming the largest Note phone to date, despite its thin bezels. The new device will probably have different processors inside, depending on market - in the US, it should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU, while an Exynos 8895 chipset may be found inside the international model.

So, what do you think about the design of Samsung's next-generation Galaxy Note thus far? Does the handset surprise you in any way?
