First live images of the upcoming Galaxy Note8 get leaked, S Pen spotted as well

With Samsung's highly anticipated Note8's release date fast approaching, the number of rumors regarding the device have been steadily increasing. After our first look at the device in an accessory render at the end of June, around two weeks ago we got a glimpse of some mockups of the Galaxy Note8 created by smartphone case maker, Ghostek. Now, real-life pictures have been been leaked that show us exactly what the smartphone looks like.

The design looks to be quite similar to Galaxy S8, another one of Samsung's flagship devices that was released earlier this year in April. The photos clearly show a dual-camera at the backside, a dedicated Bixby button, and a fingerprint scanner right next to the camera.

That's not all though; the leaked images show us the S Pen as well, which from the looks of it, is almost identical to the one that accompanied the recalled Galaxy Note7. Though it is important to note that this S Pen is not stock from the Note7, since that is still being included with the Note7 in South Korea as the 'fandom' edition.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is expected to feature a (less explosive) 3300mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, along with a hefty 64GB of storage with optional expansion via a microSD slot. It will launch on August 23 at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event in New York and Neowin's Rich Woods will be at the event to get you all the latest news on the day. Samsung will be hoping that the device is more successful than the fiery Galaxy Note7, which was discontinued last October.
