Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is already reported to be launching on August 23, 2017, andit seems that the South Korean giant has teased the upcoming phablet through a new Exynos 9 processor teaser on its official Twitter handle.
Samsung official Twitter handle posted an image of a smartphone, which one might think it to be Samsung Galaxy S8+ at first glance. But when inspect closely, you will find that the phone has smaller top bezels as compared to the company’s latest smartphone. Further, the smartphone does not look like the Galaxy S8+ or any other smartphone for that matter, but it looks eerily similar to previously leaked render of the Galaxy Note 8. Interestingly, the upcoming smartphone is also reported to be powered by company’s in-house Exynos 8895 chipset.
Recollecting some previous rumours, the smartphone is reported to come in 64GB and 128GB of storage variants. According to a report, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will also come with an option expand storage up to 256GB via micro SD card slot.
