A new leaked video claims to give a first look at Samsung’s next flagship smartphone – the Galaxy Note 8.
The Note 8, which is expected to be released around September, will be the follow up to the ill fated Galaxy Note 7, which Samsung was forced to scrap after some handsets burst into flames.
The Note 8 is rumoured to be even larger than Samsung’s current flagship handset, the Galaxy S8+, which features a 6.2 inch display.
Samsung’s new S8 series is already on track to be the company’s best selling smartphones and are the first to include a ‘bezel-less’ design with an Infinity Display that takes up almost entire front of the device.
The display gives the phones a unique screen-to-body ratio and it looks like Samsung will use the same display on the Note 8.

While the video, which was shared by Chinese technology tipster @mmddj_china gives nothing concrete away, it does give the first insight into what we may expect from the Note 8.
The Note 8 has also been rumoured to have a new dual camera setup that Samsung had planned to include in the Galaxy S8 and S8+, however, the design wasn’t quite finalised in time for the release and has been held back for the Note 8.
The release of the video comes just days after leaked images claimed to show Samsung’s new refurbished Note 7 handsets.
Named the Note 7R or Note 7FE, depending on which report you believe, will be on sale in Korea and other emerging markets, it has been reported.
The refurbished models offer the exact same specs as the original Note 7 but include a smaller battery.
It was the battery that was found to be the cause of the problems with the original launch of the Note 7 last year.
