We know that Samsung is working on the Galaxy Note8. This was confirmed earlier this year by DJ Koh, Samsung's Mobile Chief. The Note8 will likely debut this fall, but the first leaks have already been revealed.

The Note8 is rumored to have a rear dual setup, and the newest images, taken from Weibo, confirm this. The photos of a Note8 dummy have appeared on Weibo showing a vertically aligned dual camera setup.

What's even more interesting, there's no fingerprint sensor on the back or the front of the device, meaning that Samsung might have finally fixed the problem that prevented them from embedding the biometric fingerprint reader under the phone display.

It was rumored that the Galaxy S8 might have a fingerprint sensor under the phone's display. However, the company launched the device with the fingerprint sensor awkwardly positioned next to the camera sensor on the back of the phone.
