Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could feature a dual camera
Rumours suggest that the all-new new Galaxy Note 8 could launch within months with sources suggesting an autumn release.
According to tech website Galaxy Club, the new Note is currently being tested using Android 7.1.1. operating system.
This suggests Samsung is planning to release the device without Google’s new Android O installed.
Android O looks set to be released on Google's own-brand devices in September which could mean Samsung will release the Note 7 sometime in late August.
Little is currently known about the Note 8 but a new leak could have revealed two big new features coming to Samsung’s next flagship.

Images tweeted by PoyocoTech show the Note 8 with a dual rear camera – something that didn’t appear on the S8.
Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus has been praised for its dual rear snapper and it seems that Samsung could be trying to take on its arch rival with a similar camera setup on the Note 8.
Along with the dual camera the leaked image, which has not been verified, shows a rear panel without a fingerprint scanner.
This could indicate that Samsung is embedding the fingerprint scanner underneath the display on the Note 8.

Samsung moved this popular scanner to the rear of the S8 and it’s one of biggest gripes about this new device.
It’s thought that Samsung wanted to embed the fingerprint reader on the S8 flagship but ran out of time perfecting the technology.

The Note 8 could also feature a very similar curved display to the Galaxy S8 which will cover almost the entire front of the phone.
At 6.4-inches, this display looks set to be one of the biggest to date and will include QHD+ Infinity technology.
Samsung's unique S Pen could also get an upgrade and, according to PoyocoTech, could feature a built-in vibrator and a way of locating it using Find My Mobile app in Galaxy devices.
The phone its also expected to include 128GB of memory, a 4,000mAh battery with fast charging and stereo speakers that will be tuned by AKG – something already included on Samsung’s latest tablet.
