As rumors continue to roll out for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, a new leaker provided a few interesting tidbits regarding the upcoming flagship smartphone.
The credibility of the source is not yet established, so the new rumors should be taken with a grain of salt. However, if the information is true, the new features will add to the growing list of things that fans can look forward to for the Galaxy Note 8.
Galaxy Note 8 Leaks From PoyocoTech
PoyocoTech is a new Twitter account that claims to have information on the "latest leaks and renders of upcoming tech gadgets," though there is no way to confirm for now if it is legitimate with real sources.
The account tweeted several pieces of information that have already been previously leaked, including that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a design similar to the Galaxy S8 and that it will have dual rear cameras. The account also uploaded a render of the Galaxy Note 8 with no fingerprint scanner at the back, following earlier reports that Samsung finally figured out how to place the component underneath the smartphone's display.
The render, meanwhile, also places the Galaxy Note 8 with the Galaxy Note 3, as the upcoming smartphone's dual-camera set-up is claimed to have a vertical arrangement. This is similar to the camera design of the Galaxy Note 3, which arranged the lens and LED flash vertically.
PoyocoTech also claimed that Samsung will be looking to perfect its design through uniformly aligned ports for the Galaxy Note 8. The smartphone is also said to have stereo speakers that will be tuned by Austrian sound company AKG, and a 3.5mm headphone jack will be located at the bottom of the device.
The new leaker also claimed that Samsung will add texture to the dedicated Bixby button, which calls the company's personal digital assistant. PoyocoTech also claimed that the new S Pen for the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a built-in vibrator, and can be located through the Find My Mobile app for Galaxy smartphones in case users misplaced the stylus.
As with previous leaks and rumors, these claims of PoyocoTech have not been confirmed by Samsung. The company may unveil the Galaxy Note 8 at the IFA show in Berlin on Sept. 1, so fans will have to wait at least two months before they find out what the upcoming flagship smartphone has to offer.
