New photos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 surface?
Yesterday, we showed you some cases designed for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The images presented of the various cases revealed a few interesting things about the next high-end phablet coming from Samsung. One, the screen will be a larger version of the Infinity Display employed on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+. Secondly, the fingerprint scanner will not be embedded under the screen; this is something that a Samsung executive happened to mention a few weeks ago. Instead, the scanner will be mounted on the back of the handset. This time, Sammy made sure not to place it right next to a camera lens like it did on the Galaxy S8/S8+. Thanks to that location, wandering fingers often smudge up the rear camera on those models.

Today, some new images of the Galaxy Note 8 have appeared. One of the photos show the bottom of the phablet, which contains the silo for the S Pen, the USB-Type C port, speakers and a 3.5mm earphone jack. The 6.3-6.4-inch display will carry the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio used on the current flagship models, and the Snapdragon 835 chipset is powering the phone in the U.S. The Exynos 8895 SoC will be handling that chore overseas. That means that there will be an octa-core CPU inside, along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. And let's not forget the 12MP dual-camera set-up that adorns the back of the unit.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be released this coming September. Better start collecting the change that magically gets sucked into your couch now because as a premium device, this phone will command a premium price. Check out the latest pictures rumored to show the Galaxy Note 8 by clicking on the slideshow below.

Such a shame. The S8 looks decent but this looks like a bar of soap.

The note line is a confused line. A note series needs to have a wide screen (16:9), a huge battery, a removable battery, an ir blaster, an fm radio, stereo speakers, an upgraded chipset, lots of in-built memory, a metal/rugged build material, and a better design compared to the regular S series for it to be a true powerhorse.

The phone doesn't need an IR Blaster or FM Radio, both are unnecessary for the Average Consumer. The 835 is still a top tier chipset, and the Battery size is irrelevant so long as it is accommodated for by Samsung.

KEY LINE: "to be a true powerhorse".

Key point :it'll likely be the best large phone on the market, no matter how hard you try.

Key point: No Samsung phone will ever be the best large phone on the market. Why? Crappy performance, horrible software.

Keep believing it will be the best large phone. It's cute.

Oh, you mean the same company that restated its rating for Apple after disappointing results? Yea, definitely not a company to trust.

Apparently, you live under a rock? Silly Sammy fanboy.

So, reevaluating a device after apple fixes a severe bug in the software makes them not trust worthy? WTF are you smoking kid? Did you even read the article you linked to?

So blinded by immature hatred, couldn't even see the second link...

You are dumb as hell.

Consumer Reports: "Your battery sucks, Apple!"

Apple: "Let's work with you so that it doesn't look like our battery sucks"

****a week passes by...random activity happens*****

Consumer Reports: "Your battery no longer sucks, it's now excellent"

___>You're are an idiot if you don't think there is anything wrong with this. The only blind person here is you, and I bet you were the very person saying that Consumer Reports wasn't to be trusted when this happened.

You Sammy fanboys are silly retarded ROFL.

Clearly too naive to even realize what a software update is. FYI, a software update isn't a random activity, but you'll soon learn that when you graduate from kindergarten level...in the mean time, get off the internet and go do your house chores kid, don't let mama catch you making a fool out of yourself on the internet.

Clearly, you don't understand the issue with a company not passing a test then manipulating software to achieve particular results in a test redo. I'm sorry, consumer reports is not a legitimate source.

Did you even attend school? You sound like a three year old.

Mr.Shazam = triggered

I'll agree that I was pretty skeptical when CR reversed its rating for Apple...

Agreed. If he actually bothered reading the article he linked to, he would have seen that the devices were simply inconsistent in the battery test before the software update from apple. It wasn't a matter of merely pass or fail. They were already getting long battery life, just not consistently. The software update simply made them more consistent.

But alas, guess the kids gotta make up conspiracy theories out of his delusional imagination to suit his early fantasy life.

You workout at Planet Fitness and have a gym photo as a profile pic on a tech website.

Clearly you're confused.

Too bad that link is from January. As of May, ios was still crashing 3 times more than Android.....their "optimized" apps too. You can reply to this once your device restarts.

Sadly for you (and all your extra accounts you log in to up vote yourself), it's not just Consumer Reports. It's virtually all tech reviewers. The huge majority named the S8 the best phone on the market.

Yes, iirc the s series has been winning many awards, but the note line only ever won one phone of the year award, no?

Phone of the year award, sure. But it's been rated the best phablet sized phone every year by most reviewers.

Well the S series is their main line in terms that it is the one that does battle with all the other Android handsets.

The Note is just supposed to keep their momentum going when the Pixel and IPhone launches.

Which gets phone of the year? The one that goes first and usually gets it right or the one that goes second that has the extra benefit of learning from the firsts mistakes? Probably the one that goes first because it was impressive for the time. If you come out in March and you STILL pimp slap everything except the Note in October, you get phone of the year simply because you came out 6 months earlier than the Note8/iphone8/pixel2 did and still achieve pretty much the same thing.

I'll take the word of the tech reviewers (which have pretty much unanimously named every Note the best large phone in the world) over the ramblings of a severely butthurt little troll (or, probably imp) with an axe to grind in a forum.

Keep denying the reality, and covering your eyes and ears. It's adorable.
