Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 8 front panel revealed in video

Posted: , by Cosmin V.

The Galaxy Note 8 is the next big thing coming from Samsung, literally. The company's flagship smartphone is expected to go official in late summer, slightly ahead of IFA 2017 tech exhibition.

Since we're just a couple of months away from the official reveal, it's quite to start talking about the unannounced phablet. The first credible information about the Galaxy Note 8 went public late last week when an image of a supposed dummy unit leaked online.

Today, we have another leak that has Samsung's flagship in the center. It appears that the front panel of the phone has been captured on video. It looks rather massive, which comes in line with the latest reports claiming the Galaxy Note 8 will boast a large 6.3-inch display.

Unfortunately, the only way that signals the fact that the front panel belongs to the Galaxy Note 8 is the handwriting note that appears in the background.

Samsung is expected to adopt dual camera technology for its next flagship smartphone, and the latest reports seem to suggest that as well. In any case, the leaks will just keep coming, so it looks like now it's a good time to be a tech lover.

Seems terrible to hold. I got big hands, but with a screen that big and bezels that small, doesn't look to appealing.

But, I'm a note fan so probably will buy one lol

7 and 8 inch tablets are already dead, all budget devices now. I don't think the 10 inch tablets are going anywhere.

I hope they keep the original aspect ratio and a flat screen over the curved nonsense they are going with today,but unfortunately I don't think Samsung cares about catering to Note 4 fans.

Yea, and I did the Note 4 more than the Note 5. That removable battery and SD card slot is, along with a less fragile build is badass.

Hell no, not with a Snapdragon 805. My Note Edge with its removable batteries are dying and I'm sure most if not all Note 4 are experiencing similar problems.

It really is time to upgrade......long live note 8 I hope????

It doesn't look curved though. He shows it side on and it's flat. Assuming this is 100% legit (probably isn't) then they could be going for no curved front glass and a much bigger battery without their flawed curve design.

Woh, I sure hope it'll be more narrow than that, way too wide for 1 handed use...

On second thought, the panel in the back looks more like a reasonable Note 8 panel. The one they were holding is probably for an 8" Tablet.

Most likely a tempered glass screen protector for the device. Still, it give some us an idea of what to expect.

If you're buying it for yourself then forget xmas and just buy and enjoy.

Absolutely, I like the fact that it is wider than the S8 family. If it turns out to be like this, FTW! I am not thinking of iPhone 8 anymore, I am getting the Note 8 on Day 1

No Edge, Nice Samsung. Note Serie no Edge, S Serie Edge.

If that's the real front glass then it's extremely ugly... it doesn't resemble the traditional Note design and if the screen is that wide then it's a no for me...

Is the S8+ "Huge?" They are about the same size phone, so you are probably looking at a Glass-Cover Protector.

I was confused to know if the Note 8 screen was the one on the table, not the one she was holding...lol
