The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may not be unveiled until August, but several leaks and renders for the device have already surfaced and paint an interesting picture of what consumers can expect.

Most recently, retailer Mobile Fun began offering Galaxy Note 8 protective cases from the brand Olixar. Accompanying the listing are renders of the Galaxy Note 8, which show off what is expected to be one of the device’s highlight features: its dual camera setup.

Rumors have long suggested the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a dual camera. The device may feature camera technology, recently showcased by Samsung, including a 13-megapixel monochrome lens and a 13-megapixel RGB lens. The sensors may feature f/2.0 aperture and 1.12µm pixel size. Recent reports also suggest Samsung may soon implement into its mobile cameras, new technologies, such as 3X optical zoom, low-light shooting, and depth sensing.

These specific features have not been confirmed for the Galaxy Note 8; however, rumors have long circulated about Samsung releasing a dual camera smartphone. Prior to launch, the Galaxy S8 was rumored to feature a dual lens setup. Instead, Samsung used its dual pixel technology for the Galaxy S8 camera.

Another standout feature revealed in Galaxy Note 8 leaks is its rear-facing fingerprint scanner, which it has adopted from the Galaxy S8. Tech informant Steve Hemmerstoffer aka @onleaks recently shared a CAD render based on leaks dimensions and specifications associated with the Galaxy Note 8. The fingerprint scanner placement is to the left of the camera module, much like that Galaxy S8. However, the render indicates the Galaxy Note 8 camera module will protrude out of the chassis, while the Galaxy S8 module is embedded within the handset.

Other details shown in the renders include the device’s S-Pen stylus, its USB-C port and its 3.5mm audio jack.

A leaked photo supposedly showcasing an up close shot of the Galaxy Note 8 camera module clearly shows the flash situated between the dual camera setup and the fingerprint scanner. Rumors suggest the image may be a real-life Galaxy Note 8 handset; however, the claim has not yet been confirmed.

Some other leaked renders showcase the front of the Galaxy Note 8, hinting to the device having an infinity display and virtual home button, similar to the Galaxy S8. Rumors suggest the Galaxy Note 8 may have a 6.3-inch display, which could make it only slightly larger than the Galaxy S8 Plus, which features a 6.2-inch display. Rumors also suggest black, blue and gold color options, which also harkens to the Galaxy S8 design. So far, most renders have surfaced in black.

Some leaks of supposed Galaxy Note 8 front panels appear as if they may be flat, but the device is expected to maintain the dual-edge curved display seen on the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung has made its curved displays more shallow over time for a more seamless and high-end look. The shallow curve also helps maximize the screen real-estate while allowing for smaller overall dimensions in comparison to a flat device.

While many renders show the Galaxy Note 8 having a side-by-side horizontal dual camera setup, some enthusiasts have imagined the Galaxy Note 8 having a vertical set up with one lens on top of the other. Mockups shared by the blog TechnoBuffalo show such a design, which could be a solution to many of the criticisms of the Galaxy S8. In particular, the render shows the Galaxy Note 8 fingerprint scanner below the vertical dual camera setup. Such a design would give users easier access to the Galaxy Note 8 fingerprint scanner. However, most leaks and rumors suggest the side-by-side camera and fingerprint sensor design.
