Now that the hype for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus has died down, tech enthusiasts are now looking forward to the company's next flagship offering, the Samsung #Galaxy Note 8. While the device may still be far away from being unveiled, rumors and leaks regarding its possible design and features are slowly ramping up. Now, the latest leak comes in the form of a brand new video that apparently shows off its alleged #Front Panel.

Leaked video

The video, which was originally found on the Chinese Twitter-equivalent website, Weibo, apparently shows off the device's front panel. While not a lot of information can really be gathered from the short video, the panel seems to confirm that the Note 8 may be following the same design language as its smaller siblings.

The alleged front panel for the Note 8 seems to confirm that the device may be coming with the same "Infinity Display" as the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. However, the bezels look to be even thinner from top to bottom when compared to the already released flagships. Additionally, the Note 8 looks like it will be wider than the S8, which means that it may not be following the S8's unique 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

Rumored features and specs

The #Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will still be a high-end and premium offering, which means that it will be coming with the latest mobile hardware available. As of the moment, a majority of the reports have claimed that the Note 8 will most likely be coming with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. However, if Qualcomm will launch an even faster chip, then it will likely be incorporated into the Note 8.

Similar to the S8 and S8 Plus, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to feature a dual camera setup at the back, a dedicated Bixby button on the side, and a built-in Iris Scanner up front. The device may also be equipped with 6GB of RAM and perhaps 64 GB or 128 GB of internal memory storage.

Make or break

Given the tragic fate of last year's Galaxy Note 7, the new model does have a lot to make up for in terms of regaining its customer's confidence. The success of the S8 and S8 Plus has somewhat diluted the stigma involved with the Samsung brand, but the notion of the Note line being a fire hazard is still pretty much engrained into people's minds. The Note 8's success and its lack of a spontaneous combustion feature will be the determining factor for Samsung to continue offering Note smartphones moving forward. Samsung is expected to announce the new flagship sometime within the fourth quarter of this year.
