New pictures of the Galaxy Note 8 have just gone live and seem to corroborate earlier reports of a Galaxy S8-esque design with a squared-off look at the corners, along with the presence of dual rear cameras and a redesigned S-Pen.

The first live pictures of the Samsung's upcoming Note 7 successor, the Galaxy Note 8, have leaked ahead of its official launch on August 23. The leaks show a tall display with thin bezels (yaay!) and a dedicated Bixby button to the left. As reported earlier, the leaked pictures confirm the presence of a dual camera setup at the back alongside a fingerprint sensor. The leaked images also reveal the redesigned S-Pen, which matches up to what noted leakster, Evan Blass tweeted earlier. 

The Galaxy Note 8 is purported to have the following specs —

  • 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a native resolution of 2960x1440
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC for the US version and Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC for the rest of the world
  • 6 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage (expandable via micro SD)
  • Two 12 MP rear shooters with wide-angle and telephoto lenses
  • An 8 MP front shooter 
  • 3300 mAh battery with fast charging

There are also rumors of an Emperor Edition having up to 256 GB storage slated to launch exclusively in Asian markets. Watch this space as we continue our coverage of all the Galaxy Note 8 news, right up to launch.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
