Leaked images showcase the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 from every side

Leaked images showcase the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 from every side
Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8's late August unveiling, Boy Genius Report shared detailed renders of the smartphone supplied by case maker Ghostek. Allegedly, they are based on genuine details and schematics, and while they may not end up being the real thing, they certainly look well-informed!

The upcoming handset is shown from the front, back, top, bottom, left and right. A notable difference from other images like this we've seen is that the screen's edges appear rounded, rather than squared off. Thus, the design is more similar to the Galaxy S8 and S8+, although the top and bottom bezels appear somewhat thinner.

On the back panel, a dual camera setup can be seen as expected, next to a fingerprint scanner. If the data to which these images were generated is correct, then it looks like Samsung has abandoned any plans for incorporating a fingerprint reader under the screen's glass cover. The choice to continue with this peculiar scanner placement, which gathered criticism with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ may be controversial to some. But for now, it's the best Samsung has got to work with.

In terms of hardware, the Galaxy Note 8 is shaping up to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor-powered device (Exynos 8895 in certain regions) with 6GB of RAM, dual 12MP cameras, and a 3,300mAh battery. A 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with the Univisium 18:9 aspect ratio is expected on the smartphone.

All things considered, we have a very good picture of what Samsung's upcoming hero phone for the second half of 2017 is going to be. For more information, head to the ample material we have collected in the links below!

It appears like there will be no camera bump which is nice. However, I wish the fingerprint scanner was incorporated within the screen.

I think they should also place the power button next to the camera as well and the volume buttons next to the fingerpint sensor...all together in line...LOL I hope this time customers will punish Samsung for the repeated totally FAIL fingerprint scanner wrong place...It looks REALLY BAD

Give it to Chinese OEMs. They can come up with any solution.

Failed, huh? The reviewers who've said that it's the best phone out there & the millions of people who've bought the phone would be to differ.

I don't. Fingerprint reader is just fine on the S8. I like the position.

Now this is bad. That camera sensor and the fingerprint sensor looks really bad. With the S8 the fingerprint sensor was okay there but this setup looks very weird.

At least it's not going to look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame iPhone Pro

I think that 4 door Porsche joint is ugly but the sales & fact that there's a 2nd generation of it show that 1. my opinion to Porsche & Porsche divers means nothing 2. Regardless of said opinion people still by them.

3300 is bad. Big downgrade. Hard to justify giving up battery size from the S8+

35. darkkjedii

Posts: 30688; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

Not if it's as good as the one in the S8 Plus. Samsung isn't playing around with the battery.

The iPhone or any other phone just can not compare bro! Oh my Lord that list, I'm salivating at the mouth! Lol One Phone to rule them all!

This is gonna be way ahead in terms of usability. The iPhone will get it's sales no doubt, but the Note 8 is gonna be bad ass. The V30 will be it's actual closest comp along with the S8. I just don't see another productivity device matching it.

100% agree bro I don't actually mind LG, but they just don't bring as much to the table as Sammy, and no phone can match the Note for functionality simple as.

24. darkkjedii

Nothing can. It's a must have for me, and I'm keeping my S8 Plus. I was gonna sell it, but I sold my iPhone. I love my S8 Plus, and don't really wanna part with it. The Note will come with a free 256 gig card offer, so I'll be set on both.

Sammy all the way bro! You just can't go wrong! That sounds like a good deal! When I bought my S6+ I got a free WiFi charger thrown in, but even from day one I always used WiFi charging! Only time I've plugged cable in is when I'm on holiday or transferring stuff to my computer! Sammy are the best!

"Sammy are the best!" And nothing else matters!

"The V30 will be it's actual closest comp..." I used to think LG was catching up to Sammy but LG paled in comparison with the 3 main things that I look for in a phone: Performance Display Camera Both have mounds of customization options but Samsung just takes the cake with everything.

My boy has a v20, and it's really a nice phone. It won't match the Note, but as a productivity device not made by Samsung, it'll be closest.

Yea the V20's not bad. It's never been a deal breaker but if Samsungs' remote app was like LG's I would've used it more.

A laptop. I'm more productive with a Macbook (and the phone in my pocket). Yeah, I know, "why use a laptop?" - because of the productivity advantage (who is crazy enough to write 100 mails/day, using a smartphone; test ping, whois, domains, read long docs, watch surveillance videos). The smartphone is NOT a productivity device; it is designed to get notifications, look at them, interact quickly (send a quick reply, send a quick request etc) and MOVE TO A PRODUCTIVITY DEVICE to get the job done! PS: I doubt Note 8 will be able to match 6s in productivity when we're talking media.
