Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh has already confirmed the company is bringing Galaxy Note 8, which he claims will be “better, better, safer and very innovative.” Now a user on Chinese social networking site Weibo has claimed that the new Galaxy Note device will have dual rear camera setup and a 6.3-inch display.

The Weibo leak is in line with a previous report in 9to5 Google, that read, “The dual-cameras will include 3x optical zoom, 12MP wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13MP telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses and dual OIS.” The report quoted KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that dual rear camera setup in Galaxy Note 8 will be “the most important upgrade” and even “better than that of iPhone 7 Plus, and likely match that of OLED iPhone.”

Further, a Chinese site had earlier put out a schematic drawing, supposed to be that of Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and revealed specifications of the device as well. According to the site, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have dual edge curved display, and run Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 6GB RAM and up to 256GB of expandable internal storage.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is said to feature iris sensor on the front, like we saw in Galaxy S8 series, as well as a dedicated button to launch Bixby. There will be a slot to keep S-Pen, a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Of course, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is far from launch and leaks need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Meanwhile, Samsung is gearing to sell the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 units, which will reportedly be sold at half the cost of the original. According to a report in The Investor, Galaxy Note 7R is going to be released soon, and will be made available in South Korea.
