Samsung’s rumored to unveil the much-anticipated Galaxy Note 8 (SM-N950F) at the IFA trade show in September, and now the handset has been spotted on the HTML5Test online database running Android 7.1.1 Nougat and the latest build of the firm’s homegrown Internet client.

If you’re not particularly tech-savvy, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of HTML5Test; it’s one of the most widely-recognised benchmarking tests for web browsing performance, and the Galaxy Note 8 performed pretty well, racking up an impressive score of 488 out of a possible 555 points.

Recent leaks, rumors and speculation point towards the Galaxy Note 8 sporting an edge-to-edge Infinity Display, an Exynos series (8895) processor, an in-house dual-camera setup, 6/8GB of RAM and a 3,500mAh battery. It should also ship with Bixby on board and a dedicated physical button.

What’d you think of these renders?

Just in case you missed them, earlier this week we released a set of speculative renders of the Galaxy Note 8. They were designed in collaboration with Benjamin Geskin, and are based on the slew of rumors we’ve spun into stories recently, not schematics, CAD files or anything else.

Check them out in the gallery below.
