Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with dual-rear camera setup tipped to launch mid-August

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is now tipped to launch mid-August. According to a report by The Bell, the company is planning to launch Galaxy Note 8 mid-August just a few weeks ahead of IFA 2017. Samsung pushed the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 ahead last year in order to capitalise on iPhone 7's incremental update cycle. Earlier rumours suggested that Samsung will delay the Galaxy Note 8 launch, in order to not repeat the same mistakes it did with the Note 7 launch. However, it now seems that Galaxy Note 8 launch will coincide with Apple's next-generation iPhone launch.

Apart from introducing the Infinity Edge display design for Note series, Samsung is also said to add a dual-rear camera setup this year. According to a Weibo leak, the smartphone is said to sport a dual 13MP rear camera setup. In the past, Samsung used image sensors from Sony along with its own sensors. The dual 13MP rear cameras are rumoured to offer enhanced imaging capabilities, including support for 3x optical zoom. Noted KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a combination of 13MP + 12MP dual rear camera setup for wide angle and telephoto shots respectively.

Leaks suggests that the phone may sport a 6.3-inch Infinity Edge display, up to 6GB RAM and 256GB storage. The Galaxy Note 8 may not have under display fingerprint reader and instead opt for a circular biometric sensor placed at the back of the device. The Galaxy Note 8 could also be the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm's updated Snapdragon 836 chipset.
