Samsung has already revealed its first two flagships this 2017 with the launch of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Despite this, however, mobile enthusiasts are still anticipating the release of the South Korean tech giant’s larger, more powerful flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8. If recently-leaked images are any indication, it appears that Samsung is already closing in on the final design of the upcoming premium-grade device.
Recently, Russian tech blogger Eldar Murtazin posted a couple of images that appeared to show a Galaxy S8+ prototype, according to a report from The Verge. Unlike the Galaxy S8+ production model that was unveiled to the market, however, the S8+ images showed a completely redesigned back panel for the massive smartphone, complete with a vertical dual-camera lens placed right above a heart rate sensor and flash. According to Murtazin, the image depicted one of the early prototypes of the Galaxy S8+, which was ultimately scrapped after Samsung encountered some issues with the mass-production of the device.
