Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition teardown reveals new battery

Needless to say, Samsung has a huge responsibility of reviving the Galaxy Note series after the Galaxy Note7 battery fiasco, which nearly came close to killing the company's most profitable flagship phablet series for good.

Another way of identifying that this is likely not the Galaxy Note 8 is the fact that Samsung hasn't yet pulled the Tweet (at least not yet). The phone would sport a 6.3 Inch display as well.

The Note 8, has been the subject of increased scrutiny in the run up to its launch after its predecessor the Note 7 was recalled after a battery fault caused numerous handsets to explode.

The smartphone used in the photo has an Infinity Display which has even smaller bezels than the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. However, Samsung's official Exynos Twitter account has tweeted what could possible be a render of the new device. Because the full device is not shown in the image, it is hard to say if the smartphone comes with Note line's trademark S-Pen or not. They are hoping to see an uncomparable device from Samsung this year with high end hardware.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 cases listed online and the leaked renders have been hinting at a missing in-display biometric sensor and rather a rear mounted scanner. On the imaging front, the Note 8 is widely expected to come with a dual camera setup at the rear with a 12MP wide-angle lens paired with a 13MP telephoto lens capable of 3X lossless zoom. Rumours point towards the smartphone going on sale in September.
