Has Samsung just revealed its next flagship smartphone?

However, we are also hearing some rumours suggesting that there might be a mid-range smartphone to become Samsung's first ever device with a dual-camera setup, even before the Galaxy Note 8. That could be one of the reasons why the Galaxy Note 8 is arriving a few weeks earlier than expected. Finally, the units that are being sold are new and come with a one-year Samsung warranty.

Samsung Exynos, from its official Twitter handle, put out a tweet that read, "Do what you want". Samsung is also expected to launch a mini version of its existing Galaxy S8 smartphone, and so, the second model is rumored to be the Galaxy S8 Lite. Beyond that, it weighs 2.3 grams less than the original, mainly due to the smaller battery. This problem reared its head shortly after it launched in 2016 and was promptly recalled by Samsung.

As much as we'd like to say this is the Galaxy Note 8, it seems highly improbable that Samsung would make such a mistake.

Two new leaks have apparently confirmed that Samsung won't be able to deliver on one of the biggest selling points of the Galaxy Note 8, a fingerprint reader integrated into the display. The Exynos9 chip in the image is shown laying on top of a smartphone - a device that people are guessing is supposed to represent the Galaxy Note 8.

The tweet again was supposed to highlight Samsung's own Exynos chipset with the accompanying handset as a further symbol of its processing power. It may also give us an idea of what the Note would look like with a 18:5:9 aspect ratio with 'Infinity Display'. When it does, the smartphone for the USA could come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. So is the rest of the phone really the same as before - the short answer is yes.

The listing data shows that the new phone will run on Android 7.1.2 which is actually hardly available to phones outside Google Nexus and Pixel.
