These dbrand Galaxy Note 8 skins might reveal the design of Samsung's next big thing

Even if we're more than one month away from the day when Samsung will officially unveil the new Galaxy, dbrand, an American maker of popular custom skins for smartphones, is already accepting pre-orders for Note 8 skins. dbrand is also showing a Galaxy Note 8 render - which looks pretty much as we'd expect (go here, here, and here to see some previous Note 8 images and renders).
dbrand says you should buy a skin for your (future) Samsung Galaxy Note 8 because the smartphone "is inevitably going to slip out of your hands at some point. Even if by some miracle it doesn't, you'll spend endless time wiping the fingerprints off the glass back." It makes sense for the Note 8 to have a glass back, since this is also the case with the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Earlier this year, before Samsung officially introduced the Galaxy S8 and S8+, dbrand announced skins for both these phones, revealing what turned out to be their final designs. Thus, it's quite possible that what we're seeing below - thanks to dbrand - resembles the real Galaxy Note 8. Of course, for now, we can't be certain of anything, but we'd says that the probability of this being the Note 8 is pretty high. What do you think?
- Display 6.3" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(22h talk time)

I'm with you. Had the S8 since launch (actually 2 days early) and I don't even think about it anymore. Took only about 48 hours to get used to it without a case. With a case it's completely a non-issue. I actually use it more than the Iris Scanner.

I am so sick of people complaining about the fingerprint scanner placement. If you dont like it then dont purchase the device. Its that simple! STFU already! On a more positive note, absolutely gorgeous. I love the square-ish corners more than the rounded ones on the S8/S8+. I can't wait to get this device.

It really doesn't look like 18.5/9. Looks wider than my s8+

Nope you can pre-order the skins. D-brand did the same for the S8 final design.

People who have bought Samsung's latest phones know to buy cases. I dont see a need to mention the phone being a fingerprint magnet and slippery. Samsung phones arwnt the only ones that are this way, yet on PA its the only phone ever tagged as such.
