Photos and a video of a purported Samsung Galaxy Note 8 dummy unit have surfaced on Chinese social networking site Weibo and YouTube.

In one of the leaked photos, the dummy unit is placed besides a Galaxy S7 edge, where the former appears to be taller. This suggests that the Galaxy Note 8 will have a display which is bigger than 5.5-inches. A tipster previously said that the Galaxy Note 8 would have a 6.3-inch display.

In another photo, the rear of the dummy unit shows a vertical dual-camera layout. If true, this layout would be similar to the rumored iPhone 8. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared in April that the Galaxy Note 8 would be the first dual-camera smartphone from Samsung.

What's more interesting is the fact that the front and the back lack a placement for the fingerprint sensor. Has Samsung overcome the time constraints and technological barriers of implementing an embedded fingerprint sensor? Concept Creator also has a video of the dummy unit and you can check it out below:
