Latest render of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 reveals embedded fingerprint scanner, dual rear cameras

Latest render of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 reveals embedded fingerprint scanner, dual rear cameras
A Twitter user with the handle @PoyocoTech, has sent out a tweet with a render that he claims is an image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. As you can see, the phablet borrows the design from the Infinity Display used on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. The image also reveals that Samsung has worked out the issues it had with embedding the fingerprint scanner under the front screen. We can reach that conclusion because of the lack of a fingerprint scanner on the front or back of the phone, at least in the render that accompanies this story.

On back, you can see a vertically mounted dual-camera setup. Several tweets sent by Poyoco claim that the phablet will sport stereo speakers "tuned" by AKG, and that the Bixby button will have texture added to it. The S Pen will vibrate (!) and can be located using the Find My Mobile app. A 3.5mm earphone jack is apparently located on the bottom of the phone. Based on a separate weibo post, the Galaxy Note 8 will also have a higher screen to body percentage than the two 2017 flagship models thanks to narrower bezels, and wider angles at the top corners of the phablet.

Without verification, we would suggest taking these new leaks with a grain of salt. We could see the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 unveiled during this year's IFA show, which starts in Berlin on September 1st.

Wow, looking just like a souped-up Galaxy S8. If this is the real deal, it's easily a day one purchase for me. S-Pen + gigantic display + dual rear cameras + embedded fingerprint scanner....what a tease. Release the beast already.

...And 3/4 day battery life with a 3300mAh battery...

If it has the s8+ battery and you are not a heavy user like me the battery will last you all day and a couple hours in the morning.

Considering the S8+ gives me 7hrs SOT on average I reckon the battery will be ok (One day I got 6.5hrs SOT and still had 50% left, although I had the brightness low)

IDK but my GS8 (Exynos version) lasts like 3.5-4.5 SOT each day. I'm not a heavy user (just use social media and stuff) though I do keep Bluetooth and location on. Brightness is set at auto too, Lesser apps are running in the background. I've been using it since last month and TBH I'm really impressed but the battery life is my only concern and is a deal breaker for me. My 7 plus lasts way longer whether on standby, lightweight or heavy usage. I might return my GS8 soon and get the Note 8 IF it does have a bigger battery otherwise I will be really disappointed.

Snapdragon S8 here, 6 to 7.5 hours SOT with at least 2 hours of gaming included. So I have zero concerns about a larger phone with a larger battery (the S8+ in the house lasts up to 1 hour SOT longer too).

Every Note I've used since the Note 3 has easily lasted a full day with battery to spare.

A 3300mah battery won't last 3 to 4 days, galaxy s7 edge 3600mah battery full day use.

Beast? LOL more like crippled TRASH that does nothing but lag, while being overpriced, and attracting losers like TechieXMoron and DarkiDiot.

I'd be more inclined to say that you're the loser for caring this much about a phone that you don't like.

And I'd me more inclined than aegislash to say that you're a delusional imbecile that likes to drag people into arguments when they're not even relevant.

Sorry for double post, but I want to nitpick something I keep seeing. Lots of PhoneArena articles claim Samsung is the one who had trouble with getting the embedded fingerprint scanner working.... I recall a month or two ago, PhoneArena posted an article claiming it was Synaptics fault for not having the embedded fingerprint tech ready in time for Samsung. So, which is it? Is there an official reason? Or are we all kinda just assuming whatever is most logical.

Imho, i think it goes both ways tbh. Even apple has been rumored to be having problems too. The thing is, i just think the tech for an embedded fps is not ready for primetime just yet. The tech just seems too complicated to successfuly mass producet without hiccups. Thats why the first company to nail it will recieve an insane amount of hype. Heres to hoping they implement it this year.

Is it not one in the same? the FPS for both the iPhone and Samsung are being done by Synaptic. Samsung still has to make the components work in their own phone. So basically BOTH are having trouble with it.

Re-read my comment. It was about Samsung. But, of course, you just ALWAYS have to drag Apple into it somehow.

The point is just as I said. The solution is coming from the same company. The company has an issue with its components. It effected both Samsung and Apple equally. I mentioned Apple because they sourced the same component. You made it sound like it is a Samsung issue only. Its actually not Samsung's issues. Its Synaptic issues. But in order for Samsung to make it work in their product, they have to put said com
