Samsung Galaxy Note 8 spotted in Samsung Exynos 9 teaser?

Are you sure we're meant to be looking at the processor, Samsung?


Strange things happen sometimes. Out of the blue, Samsung Exynos' Twitter account posted this teaser image marketing the Exynos series 9 mobile application processors. From a distance, the phone you are seeing on it might seem like the Galaxy S8. Maybe it's the angle, but looking at how the upper bezel is noticeably thinner, and the side bezel is basically non-existent, we can't help but think that this is the Note 8, hidden in plain sight! The Galaxy s8 doesn't really look like this, and neither does any other phone, for that matter.

Given that the Note 8 is reportedly scheduled for an August 23 announcement, it would make sense for Samsung to be throwing around subtle hints and clues, though revealing half the front of an upcoming high-profile smartphone is quite a marketing strike. Regardless, it's nice to see Samsung has found ways to refine what's already a very alluring design.

The Galaxy Note 8 will once again feature an S-Pen smart stylus, and will also see its rear camera upgraded to a duo-cam setup. You can read more about the up-and-coming phablet and check out some concept renders in the links below.

Hm...if that't it, looks like they decided to go with a full rectangular display rather than the rounded corner displays of the S8/S8+. Guess it makes sense though, so you have as much surface area as possible for the S-Pen.

Looks great tbh.

It looks absolutely fantastic. But looks can be deceiving.

Let's just hope it doesn't lag like the S8/S8+.

Leased? Nah... More like Samsung got that plot of land or free in his head.

Lumbergh is more obsessed about Samsung than Samsung fanboys themselves. Hilarious.

In my opinion nothing is perfect. I own Apple products and Samsung including 3 4k tvs, fridge and tablets. Just get whatever you like and stop bs.

He's busy trying to spread his agenda, because he can't deal with the fact that the Galaxy phones have been rated higher than his chosen brand. It absolutely makes him Furious.

He will mention that no matter what. This is what he wants. Ignore him, and like all trolls, he'll soon go away.

I've decided not to feed him anymore.

The note corners have never been as rounded as the S phones

To think in the time since the Note 7 no phone has managed to even take advantage of the debacle, Samsung about to post their largest profits almost a year later. Tough times for the Samsung haters. :)

If this has the Note 7s rectangular shape plus S8+ Infinity Display, it will be damn near perfect.

Yeah I've seen already! It's looking lush if this is indeed the Note 8 we are looking at! And if it comes with the 9 series Exynos I'll be over the moon as i live in the uk! It's killing me just having to wait for it!

I will say this tho, this pic looks totally different to the screen protector pics I've seen over the last few weeks! The screen protectors look more like the S8, so I don't know which at the moment we are getting.

Only just over a month odd to go, I'm sure there will be more photos springing up soon.

Couldn't agree more! It's not going to be the complete Package yet, cause that would have a 4k screen/fingerprint scanner on the front, but I don't mind waiting another 2 years to get that with the Samsung anniversary editions!
