Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in August at IFA 2017 trade show. Thanks to the leaked renders and rumors over the past few months, we have a bit of an idea of what to expect from the smartphone. In the latest development, new details about the Galaxy Note 8 rear camera have emerged. Earlier rumors have pointed that the smartphone will feature a dual-rear camera setup, and the latest report hints at two 13-megapixel camera sensors. The camera modules will reportedly be manufactured by Samsung Electronics and Samsung Electro-Mechanics.

According to a report on Androidheadlines, Samsung is currently developing three different types of two-sensor mobile camera modules. This could be a combination two modules of different resolutions or a setup with monochrome and RGB sensor, or a standard and telephoto lens for optical zoom and bokeh effects in portrait mode. But it is unclear what kind of sensors Samsung may opt for. As of now, the only Samsung smartphones expected to feature dual rear cameras are the Galaxy C10, Galaxy C10 Plus and the Galaxy Note 8. However, there is no way to check the authenticity of this report and hence we would suggest you take this information with a grain of salt.
Recently, rumors also claim that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 won t ship with the under-screen fingerprint scanner and hence we can expect the device to either ship with a physical Home button with an integrated fingerprint reader or a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, just like the one on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
Furthermore, if rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy Note 8 will also feature the Galaxy S8-like Infinity Display. In terms of other specifications, recent reports indicate the Galaxy Note 8 will be one of the first smartphones to boast Qualcomm s upcoming Snapdragon 836 SoC clocked at 2.5GHz. However, some reports suggest that Samsung will launch the Note 8 with the current flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage expandable up to 256GB. Apart from that, the smartphone will feature a dedicated Bixby button on the side of the smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to run the latest Android Nougat 7.1.1 out-of-the-box.
