While Samsung has announced that it will officially unveil the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23, the render images of the smartphone are continuing to pop up on the Internet ahead of the event. The newly leaked image of the next Galaxy Note series flagship suggests a similar design to previous leaks but the possible details regarding the camera on the handset have also been revealed by the company.
First talking about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 render, the image leaked by credible tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks shows the alleged smartphone in Midnight Black colour. As Samsung said "Do bigger things" in its invite images, a slightly bigger 6.3-inch Infinity Display (narrow bezels and taller-than-usual frame) is expected on the smartphone. The leaked image show a similar design to Galaxy S8 on the front but suggests that the Galaxy Note 8 will have slightly squarish edges.
As the Galaxy Note series primarily differs from the Galaxy S series in terms of software and some stylus features, we might have to wait till the official announcement to get to know some crucial aspects of the Galaxy Note 8.
Separately, Samsung-Electro Mechanics, which is rumoured to supply the dual-camera setup on the Galaxy Note 8, has posted some details about the dual camera setups and their advantages, as spotted by 9To5Google. As Galaxy Note 8 is widely expected to feature dual cameras at the back, it is very much possible that these details might be a direct reflection of the optics on the yet-to-be-announced flagship.
As per the details posted by the company, the dual camera setup is able to achieve 3X optical zoom. Notably, some other smartphones with dual camera setups including iPhone 7 Plus are able to provide maximum of 2X optical zoom.
Apart from the depth-of-field, users can also expect better low-light performance from the camera setup on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Users will also get the option to blur certain aspects of the background to rearrange the focus after the photos are clicked, as can be done on some other smartphones as well. The company has clearly mentioned that the application of this dual camera setup can be done on smartphone, tablets, gaming device, and televisions as well. However, as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is likely to be the first handset from the company to have this feature, this might be our glimpse of what is coming our way very soon.
To recall, recently some renders of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 were leaked by a case-maker and the smartphone also received nod from the FCC
