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.
