New Samsung Galaxy Note 8 CAD leak matches previously posted designs
There is also some similarity to a very ugly design tweeted by tipster OnLeaks during the last few days of June. Considering that Slickwraps is apparently betting its money on the image seen on its CEO's tweet, we have to consider that this could be a legit look at Sammy's next high-end phablet.
As we told you last month, a Samsung executive said that the fingerprint scanner for the Galaxy Note 8 will not be under the glass. Some were expecting this feature for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. When the technology couldn't be made ready for prime time, many expected Samsung to have everything in place for the Galaxy Note 8. All three designs for the Galaxy Note 8 found in the slideshow reveal a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, which is sure to upset many potential Galaxy Note 8 buyers.
Unlike the placement of the rear-facing fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, which is too close to the camera and can lead to smudges on the lens, the Galaxy Note 8 will have some separation between the scanner and the dual camera lenses according to these images.
