Following the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, a new image has been leaked of a similar looking device. Surprisingly, the leak shows a stylus along with the smartphone.
As we all know, Samsung rolls out its flagship devices in three series—the regular ones, Edge series with curved displays and the Note series with a stylus.
Though Samsung has withdrawn the Edge series for its latest flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus and featured dual curved displays for both devices, none of the two comes with a bundled stylus. Hence, the leaked image can be taken as a hint that Samsung is gearing up to launch the next Note device pretty soon.
The leaked image also shows Samsung’s homemade AI Bixby on screen, hinting that the new device is yet to be launched by the company.
Though Samsung has kept mum on this, rumours suggest that the upcoming smartphone might either pack Exynos 8895 or Qualcomm’s latest SoC 835 with 6GB RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage. Reading the trend of Samsung’s flagship devices, it is highly expected that the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 might also come up with a 4K display.
