A new Galaxy S8 leak shared on Twitter by Russian tech blogger Eldar Murtazin shows two images of a Galaxy S8 prototype first posted online by Asia leaker KK, including a picture of the rear side complete with a dual camera setup. The dual lens camera has a vertical orientation, and the heart rate sensor and flash are present under it. Murtazin also seems to believe the design will be used for the Galaxy Note 8 that’s supposed to come out in the second half of the year.
Recent reports indicated that Samsung is already working on the Galaxy Note 8. Even the Galaxy S9 development is already underway. The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to have an Infinity display that’s even bigger than the one found on the Galaxy S8+, and ship with a built-in S Pen support.
Samsung has reportedly partnered with Synaptics for embedding the fingerprint sensor in the display of its flagship smartphones, but the latter wasn’t able to deliver the technology in time for the Galaxy S8’s launch. It’s likely that Samsung is still interested in the project, especially considering that Apple is also working on similar Touch ID tech for the iPhone 8.
