Samsung might have given us our first official look at the Note 8, or at least a better idea of what the still unannounced smartphone may look like.
The company’s next flagship device isn’t predicted to be revealed until August 23rd, according to recent reports. However, Samsung’s official Exynos Twitter account has tweeted what could possible be a render of the new device.
In a promotional tweet advertising the Exynos 8895 mobile processor found in the Samsung global variant of the Galaxy S8, the company says it has another device lying underneath.

The smartphone in the image does appear to be missing buttons on its right side, however. This is an indication that the image could be a render and not the actual Note 8 (considering this is the location where the device’s power button should be). Placing the volume rocker, power button and Bixby button, all on the left, seems very unlikely.
Another way of identifying that this is likely not the Galaxy Note 8 is the fact that Samsung hasn’t yet pulled the Tweet (at least not yet). It may also give us an idea of what the Note would look like with a 18:5:9 aspect ratio with ‘Infinity Display.’
It’s likely we’ll have to wait until August 23rd, or at least a more definitive leak pops up, before getting a legitimate look at the Note 8.
