Samsung has apparently leaked their upcoming Galaxy Note 8 smartphone, a sly marketing move ahead of their official product announcement, which is rumored to happen next month.

On Twitter, Samsung promoted the new Exynos 8895 chipset which powers its current Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus flagship phones.

However, eagle-eyed netizens pointed out how the phone in the background was neither of the two mentioned models. They also noticed it had striking resemblance to earlier renders of the Note 8.

So far, fans think Samsung will start selling the Note 8 sometime in September as the South Korean conglomerate tries to clean up after the mess that was the Note 7.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Note 7 Fan Edition, a refurbished model, has been confirmed to have nothing new to offer except for its updated battery.

Samsung’s Note 7 launch last year hit a snag after numerous instances of their ill-fated flagship phone exploding were reported, leading to a massive product recall. It was later found out that the device's battery was the culprit.

Here, experts from iFixit say the batteries of the newest Note 7 are smaller, weighing 2.3 grams less than the original batteries while only offering 12.32 Wh of charge compared to the initial capacity of 13.48 Wh.
