Photo compares the front panel from the Galaxy S8+ to an alleged panel from the Galaxy Note 8

A self proclaimed Samsung fan posted on Twitter the other day, an image that shows the glass screen from the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 next to the panel that was used on the Samsung Galaxy S8+. If these are legitimate displays, you can see for yourself the differences between the two handsets. The Galaxy S8+ features more rounded corners while the Galaxy Note 8 has a boxier form factor.

The high-end phablet, now rumored to be unveiled on August 23rd, appears to carry a screen that could be 6.3-inches to 6.5-inches based on the comparison between the two panels. The Galaxy S8+ at the left of the picture below, comes with a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display carrying a 1440 x 2960 resolution. The screen on the Galaxy Note 8 also features a 1440 x 2960 resolution. Both panels have an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

On Friday, leaked images surfaced that allegedly revealed the front of the Galaxy Note 8, and now we have this comparison between the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 panels. And we're pretty sure that the leaks don't suddenly come to an end right now. We still have five weeks left until the Galaxy Note 8 becomes official, according to the latest rumor. And that means that there is plenty of time left to digest the most up-to-date renders, photos and rumors. Check in often for the latest on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Oh boy, this phone will be freaking hhuuuge.. Wtf? I thought this phone was suppose to be smaller than the s8+ with smaller bizels?

85% screen to body ratio on the S8+, there is only a small percentage that the bezels could possibly be reduced to whatever you "thought it was supposed to be." It's probably smaller than the iphone 7 plus that millions of people are carrying around.

Lol, it will be bigger, just like the s8 was both taller and fatter. The note 8 will be even bigger than the s8+, which in itself was bigger than the ip7+ deal with it. While the ip8 will be smaller than even the normal s8. DEAL WITH IT.

I'll happily deal with it. I can't wait to get my hands on it, and whip out my debit card. I have no problem with a big ass phone, that does big as things, on a big ass screen, with a big ass feature list, and big ass performance. The Note 8 is coming, and the Note 8 is gonna be bad ass...DEAL WITH IT.

Deal with a 6.2 inch screen vs. a 5.5 inch screen, in a phone a whole 1 millimeter taller, okay.

The iPhone 8 won't be smaller than the S8. Less tall yes, but not smaller. The iPhone 8 is 143.59mm long and 70.94mm wide. Surface area: 143.59*70.94= 10186.27mm² The Galaxy S8 is 148.9mm long and 68.1mm wide. Surface area: 148.9*68.1= 10140.09mm² So in actual fact the S8 is smaller than the iPhone 8. P.S. the same counts for the S8+ and iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 7 Plus is larger (by around 5%) than the S8+ and only has a 5.5 inch display.

And why would you think that? Your cousin, "the Samsung insider" told you that? And guess what, it will still be more comfortable to hold than your precious iPhone 7 Plus as it will be narrower but slightly taller.

He knows all, he sees all. After Santa checks his list twice, to find out who's naughty or nice, he hands it to bankz for a final check and sign off. Bankz knows where Noah's Ark is. Bankz knows the secret fuel ,captain caveman uses in his club. Bankz knows if you are sleeping. Bankz knows if you're awake. Bankz know if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sakes.

I love it how he still has the nerves to come and tell us what to expect of future phones like he is some kinda insider, even after he has been called out on numerous occasions for getting almost everything wrong.

Clearly you thought wrong. You trolls just love to stir up bullsh*t. When has the Note series ever been smaller than the preceding S version? Granted, we only have one previous year when there has been two sizes of the S, but the Note was still bigger than both of those. Also, the S8+ already has an 83% screen ratio. How much smaller could they make the bezels in less than 6 months? The question is did you really think that with absolutely no evidence to support it or are you just looking for a reason to troll. It appears to be the latter.

The note series are always bigger than the galaxies. It is samsung's way of telling people what they will offer the next year. If this design is legit, then note 8 will have the same height as an iphone 7 plus minus less thick bezels.

Since when Note series is smaller than S series. It never happen and Note series always bigger screen than S series and this is the suppose way. Want small phone just pick S series as Note series is for people loving big screen.

I truly love what's this model is,but Sammy should also provide a flat display model. Still find the edge function more impractical.

The problem is that it just seems to be taller, not wider. The S8 and S8 plus were already tall phones with weird aspect ratios. This will be even worst look like. I just don't see any benefit of it just being slightly taller.

It has the same aspect ratio as the S8 and S8+ so it will be taller and wider.

Yeah saw the screen protector last night, it's mine! What a f**kin beast of a front! Probably a 6.3 by the look of it, but bring on the 6.5 if you can do it in 2 years time Sammy! I'm so glad they made it look a bit different from the S8 I'm totally stoked to be getting this baby It's going to be expensive but I don't give a f**k, my money is ready for pre-order And I know I'm gonna use the X-Men The only thing I don't like is the wait

I agree. The square off edges in the note 8 are actually better than than off the s8+ tbh. The only thing i dont like here is the size but thats just personal taste.

STFU! Stop lying, your ass hates everything about the Note 8, and you hope they explode as well. You flock to Samsung articles to troll, not to give props. GTFOH with that BS.

Let's see what it is when launched. Things always are larger than they are when in the rumor mill like the fingerprint scanner..... nonetheless I am all in.
