"Since OLED iPhone has cancelled under-display fingerprint recognition/touch ID function, and as Galaxy S9 will have the new selling points of upgraded iris recognition and dual camera, Samsung has no need to risk adopting under-display optical fingerprint solution in a hurry", KGI report said, according to 9to5Google. Aside from the basic Samsung Galaxy Note 8 specs, it's not clear from Blass' leak precisely what new functionality will be included in the camera, but it is certainly worth waiting to find out.

The new image has the Galaxy Note8 text mentioned on the right corner. The tech industry predicts sales of the Galaxy Note 8 would hit a fresh record-high as it is the first Galaxy Note model in two years after the fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 debacle last year.

"The shipment of Samsung's smartphones rose 12 percent year-on-year as United States consumers have posted very positive responses to the new S8 products", said Ken Hyers, an analyst at Strategy Analytics.

A new rumor from analysts suggests the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date won't be until September 15.

In a BGR article, popular leaker Evan Blass revealed some final features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

These two are the most anticipated smartphones of the year.

The image features the tagline "Do bigger things", and shows the same edge-to-edge infinity display featured on the Samsung Galaxy S8 on a larger device with squared edges.

That's everything known about the Galaxy Note 8 from Samsung as of today. You can't do that with the Note 8.

Samsung has been on a roll with pushing the envelope in terms of product design lately.

Blass claims the device will have IP68 certification for water-resistance, a USB Type-C port, and a 3300mAh battery with wireless charging support. Other rumored specs include 6GB of RAM, either 64GB or 128GB of storage, dual 12-megapixel cameras on the back, a single 8-megapixel unit on the front, a 6.3-inch screen with an elongated 1,440 by 2,960 resolution, and a 3,300mAh battery to power it all. Reportedly, the Note 8 is all set to come out into the markets with a 6.3 inched display.
