Galaxy Note 8 seemingly exposed in ‘Deep Sea Blue’ colour option

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is effectively in the public domain at this point, with another leak today joining an already-extensive information bank about the phone.

In just a few days, Samsung is expected to formally unveil the long-awaited Galaxy Note 8, a flagship smartphone that’s already been confirmed for a 2017 launch. The handset is tipped to introduce the same ‘Infinity Display’ design we saw from this year’s Samsung Galaxy S8, and all the leaks we’ve seen to date suggest that will be the case.

The latest such leak comes from a well-known and respected mobile tipster and journalist called Evan Blass, who has seemingly sourced an official Galaxy Note 8 render. As usual, he’s posted the render to Twitter, giving us a detailed look at what Samsung’s next phone should look like.

Here’s the image, which apparently depicts the handset in a ‘Deep Sea Blue’ colour option:

Samsung is expected to unveil this phone on August 23, during the company’s Galaxy Unpacked press event in New York City. We don’t have a firm release date yet, but the two most recent leaks suggest we’ll see an on-sale date of either August 24 or September 15 – both may be true, as the date may differ depending on retail location.

The handset is rumoured to feature a large 6.3-inch Infinity Display, a Snapdragon 835 chip built by Qualcomm, and up to 6GB of RAM. It’s also very likely to retain the usual S-Pen stylus functionality that we’ve seen as a staple of the Note range of smartphones for years.

However, we won’t know the truth until Samsung debuts the phone, so stay tuned and take all leaks with due caution until then.
