Galaxy Note 8 envisioned in colorful new renders: see it with and without a rear fingerprint scanner
by Peter Kostadinov / Jun 14, 2017, 6:58 AM
The first half of 2017 is over and we've already been treated to a slew of major smartphone releases - the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S8+, LG G6, Xperia XZ Premium, and the HTC U11 are just the cream of the crop. Yet, the second half of the year is equally, if not more enticing, as we expect to see the Apple iPhone 7s, iPhone 8, the Google Pixel 2, the LG V30, and, of course, the Galaxy Note 8.
We've heard lots about the upcoming S Pen-toting phone, including its hardware specs, design, and even unique features of the handset. We've explored all of these in our recent rumor review that details these at large. Yet, we have a hard time visualizing what the phone is going to look like, and this is exactly where renders come in handy. Yes, they do!
The newest batch of these has been created by Benjamin Geskin and give us a look at two possible variants of the upcoming possibly dual-camera Note 8. It's expected that the Note 8 will look a lot like the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but with more pronounced display corners and, of course, an S Pen. One of the variations has the fingerprint scanner at the rear, whereas the other one features a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display. So, here's how the phone might look like without the fingerprint scanner at the back...
And here's how it could look if Samsung goes for a regular sensor at the rear, which is more likely to be the case:
- Display 6.3" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(22h talk time)

that emerald green is phenomenal never understood why Samsung never used it again after the s6 ( even the s6 had a very limited number of units with this color )

I think samsung needs to take a poll on colors... that emerald green would probably end up number 1

Emerald Green Must be standard color for S and Note series

Why does it matter if the FPS is on the back? If you actually use the phone, you will find that the location is fine. I rarely have ot use it, because I have a Gear S, and i have my device set as a trusted device for Smart Lock. So as long as my phone is in range of my Gear S, my phone will unlock. But when I do use the FPS for Samsung Pay, I managed to use the FPS with no issue. People still complaining about the FPS location, don;t have an S8, and won;t be buying a Note 8, so your opinions don't even matter; because you aren't giving the opinion on actual usage. Its like claiming a certain model cars drives bad, but you've never owned or driven it.

The fingerprint scanner on the back is a horrible location, no matter how much you try to convince yourself otherwise. Dry those salty tears and wait for the next iPhone to see what Samsung will offer in a few years.

Emerald Green needs to really come back... Fingerprint sensor on the S8 is just fine. I have 0 issues reaching it and I use it quite often. The only people still complaining about it are the ones that don't have the s8 or the ones that are extremely lazy to move their finger millimeters to the left...

Would so love an all white Note 8, but I have a feeling it's gonna be like the S8 with all black on the front and whatever colour on the back which is pointless! You always look at the front, what is the point in having a different colour on the back? Absolutely stupid decision on Samsungs part! I don't give f**k about all the sensors/cameras on the front showing, I just want the whole device in one colour! Sort it out Samsung or we'll be forever living in a black world!
