Samsung Galaxy Note 8 concept images envision a striking 6.4-inch handset with dual camera setup
Want to get a look at a concept that just might come true? Here's the Galaxy Note 8, envisioned by designer Benjamin Geskin. It looks like a jumbo-sized Galaxy S8 – something that Samsung is very likely to pull off for the Note 8. And it's still beautiful, because it starts with the right foundation.

Benjamin assumes the Note 8 will have a 6.4-inch 4K Infinity Display (18:9 ratio) in addition to an in-screen fingerprint scanner, a dual camera setup on the back, and stereo speakers. Again, highly plausible features that Samsung could very well introduce with the Note 8 in the second half of the year. We're still not sure how Sammy will fit an S-Pen inside a phone that could be so thin, but that's up to its clever designers and engineers to solve.

Another problem they'll have to tackle is the fact that the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2-inch display already, and is probably less expensive. Samsung will have to work hard to differentiate the Note 8 from its flagship phones.

I doubt that it'll look completely different than the S8 and S8+, but we should know the difference

I'm so looking forward to this babe of a phone! I'm sure Samsung will find some way of making the battery last for the 4k display! I have to admit tho I'm also wondering what the iPhone Edition gonna look like when its finished. Went in Carphone the other day and had a play with the S8+, what a babe of a phone that is! looks so thin, not as wide as my S6+ tho.

Am I blind, or is the concept missing the fingerprint scanner?

Should be embedded in the screen by the time of the Note 8...

4000 mAH battery with a thicker body, fingerprint sensor in screen, get rid of the stupid heartrate sensor for a dual flash and laser autofocus. Laser autofucus + dualpixel focus = fastest smartphone camera ever. That heart rate sencor was only cool on the Galaxy S5 3 years ago... the iphone can do heart rate with their flash, why can't the galaxy just do that and give it a dual flash? But you know, these things will never happen...

Let the rumors begin. Nobody piss their pants just yet. Wait till we're little closer to release. Hope they get finger print scanner right. Well let me get off iPhone before it loses charge. Oh darn, never mind. Down to 99 percent after 5 hours. Wish they would improve the battery life on this dang phone. Ugh.

2K screen, 6 gb of RAM, 128 gigs of storage, and an exynos.

Yeah most likely, and there might be a newer exynos chip too. In fact phonearena even wrote an article that future Samsung flagships would only ship with an exynos chip (I don't remember it correctly)

Looks extremely fake! Especially the Note series doesn't have rounded corners. The concept of Nokia 9 looks dope though and probably will be my second phone next to the Note 8 if that's real.

Dual camera? Cheap ass samsung. Need quad cameras. Infact number of cameras should be same as number of cores.

Bristling with cameras. I want a phone that looks like the underside of a surveillance drone sent by an evolved intelligence to catalog potential landing sites for their upcoming invasion and subjugation of Earth.

Vertical cameras are ugly on the iPhone 8 mockup, and they're ugly on the Note 8 mockup. On the Note 8, at least they're in the middle, but....no. Doing that to the Note 8, and giving it a 4K screen, when Samsung is gonna take the conservative route (battery wise), is a definite no go for me. Same for the iPhone 8, if the give it that ugly camera setup.

This will be the phone that puts Samsung over the top as a oem smartphone provider... Apple has had the game on lock on for so long that they forgot about progression and have been riding the wave of blind fanboyism and they've known this... Samsung hate them or love them have pushed the envelope of design and form-factor, and have now found a way to pull the Apple faithful away from their grip. I've talked to many Apple user's and they are switching to the S8 in bunches. I'm going to say it now... The Note 8 is going to break sales records for Samsung... The S8 is already on it's way to becoming Samsungs most successful handset ever...

Pure fanboyism. The Note series can't even outsell it's S counterpart, and the iPhone doubles S sales in three months. Don't be absurd... statistics trump anecdotes.

@kiko The note series is not built to outsell its s series counterpart but the note 7 was on it's way to giving the s7 a run for its money... I acknowledge that the iPhone does numbers but we all know why... I'm not being absurd nor is this pure fanboyism. I'm a consumer of all smartphone platforms but if Apple doesn't do anything exciting with the so called anniversary iPhone I'll just stick my 7+... It will continue to get updates until Apple decides to shake things up... But the Note 8 is a day one purchase for me right now...

No, the Note 7 projected for 12 million sales over a 4 month period. That's less than half the S7's sales in the same period. The iPhone does numbers because people ENJOY using them. From Q4 of 2008 to Q4 2011 Apple's iPhone sales were relatively modest at best. This narrative that people ONLY but iPhones because Apple made them is utterly ridiculous. Satisfaction surveys will show you just how illogical that ideology some of you carry truly is. Lastly, this whole "Apple isn't innovative because bezels'" nonsense has to stop. Apple's internal changes are much more significant than "looking pretty". Their chips are STILL best in class. The S8 can't even beat the iPhone 7 (six months old) in a CPU stress test. Their display is only second to the S/Note series, even at a lower resolution. Their ecosystem is still more inviting than Android, which lacks both tablet AND enterprise capabilities. Seriously, is all you people care about the outside of a phone? Don't nerds care about the internals anymore? I'll wrap this up: You can but what you want. That's your right, and the S8 is a FANTASTIC phone. It makes just about every other phone look straight garbage when you see and hold it. I have no doubt the Note 8 will be even more awesome and come with a bevy of cool add-ons' that'll make it amazing. However, there's more to a phone than the outside and cool additions'.

There are tons of people that only buy IPhone's because Apple made them... That is a fact... I've talked to a lot of people overtime conducting my own research and the response of I will only buy an iPhone because it's Apple made reigns Supreme! Satisfactory surveys account for a very small number of user's and you have to factor in false positives for blind fanboyism... So those surveys are a non factor at best.. Comparing internals is a moot point due to the fact that the iPhone and the galaxy run very different software... Apple will always win due to having a very simple platform as opposed to Android having a more complex one... App's the open milliseconds before another one is a ridiculous comparison and should never be brought up... App developers have said that they put more optimization in the ios platform than the Android platform due to ease of development... Is that the consumers fault?? The average consumer cares about the looks of a phone first and all else second... Nerds care about the opposite and that's a small piece of the pie compared to everyone else... Hence the reason why so many ios user's are considering switching to the S8... We know there's more to a phone than the outside but that's what attracts people... The beauty...
