Leaked photos show the Galaxy Note8 and its S Pen

As the Samsung Galaxy Note8 launch grows closer, the leaks grow more intense. The latest shows the upcoming flagship from all sides and even the star attraction - the S Pen. You should be pretty familiar with the dual camera on the back from all the renders and you've probably heard that it will have 3x optical zoom.
