Samsung Galaxy Note 8 cases available for pre-order reveal larger Infinity Display and rear scanner

Olixar's cases for the Galaxy Note 8 reveal a larger Infinity Display and a rear-facing fingerprint scanner

MobileFun today started accepting pre-orders on Olixar's line up of cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Since major accessory makers get first crack at seeing an upcoming handset in order to produce a case that fits (and with cutouts in the right places), we have to assume that this leak gives us great insight into the design of Sammy's new high-end phablet. What we see is a larger version of the Infinity Display employed on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+.

In addition, the images dovetail with recent leaks showing that the fingerprint scanner will indeed be placed on the back of the device. However, Samsung made sure this time not to put the scanner right next to one of the lenses belonging to the dual cameras. On the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, users trying to blindly feel their way to the scanner can end up smudging the camera lens with a finger.

We also learn from the cases that the Galaxy Note 8 will be available in Orchid Grey, Deep Blue, Black, Silver and Gold. Additionally, the Pop Cover is back, but the Lens Cover is not. Also, after not being made available for the Galaxy S8, the wireless charging Backpack case makes its return for the Galaxy Note 8. 

As we said, all of these accessories can be pre-ordered now from MobileFun. Simply click on the sourcelink, although U.S. readers should head to We should also point out that unfortunately, pricing of the cases is a bit higher this year which could mean that the device will be as expensive as rumored.
