Samsung is leaving no stone unturned in its bid to ensure the company's new #Galaxy Note 8 takes the mobile phone realm by storm. However, it remains to be seen if that comes to fruition and if the device can actually amend the company's rundown reputation which was caused by the Note 7 debacle.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: When is it arriving?

Taking the skyrocketing hype surrounding the next Galaxy Note smartphone into consideration, it is hardly surprising that the device has been subject to a slew of rumors and leaks.

Latest leaks and rumor roundup

A recently surfaced leaked video hailing all the way from #china has been doing rounds all over the internet. The rather snappy and hazy footage shows what looks like the #Front Panel for the impending Galaxy Note 8 phablet. While various websites have reported about this leaked footage, none of the publications seem to have given this leak their seal of approval. In other words, tech buffs should take this shred of information with a huge grain of salt as there's a possibility its mere a forged piece of plastic devised by someone looking to garner popularity online.

There have been all sorts of Note 8-related sketchy reports in days gone by. While some claimed to divulge the exact specifications of the handset, others just reiterated such reports.

Nevertheless, if rumors proved to be true, the Note 8 would come with a dual rear camera setup. Furthermore, it will either have a 6.3-inch or 6.4-inch AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, which is identical to the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

But that's not all. The upcoming Galaxy Note smartphone will stick to the same chipset alternatives as the Galaxy S8, S8+ smartphones. In fact, there's hearsay that the handset will have a fingerprint sensor on its back, just like the aforesaid Galaxy-branded smartphones. Moreover, the scanner would reportedly be embedded underneath the display.

There's word floating around that the South Korean handset maker will be flaunting its "all-screen" design in style with the Galaxy Note 8, but nothing is set in stone at the moment. Nevertheless, the latest leak touts the Note 8 as a device that has the potential of becoming the world’s most stunning smartphone.
