This is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in Midnight Black
What we're seeing on the left is likely the very first legitimate render of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 - a new high-end smartphone that Samsung will announce on August 23. We have high confidence in the authenticity of this image, as it's coming from Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), who's been revealing unannounced phones - with an incredible accuracy - for years now.

Reportedly, this is a Galaxy Note 8 (or Note8, as Samsung may want to write its name) in Midnight Black. For the record, the already released Galaxy S8 comes in this color, too. This render is pretty much similar to other images that have been floating around the web recently, showing a tall handset with a dual-curve screen and very little bezel around it.

Unfortunately, for now, we can't see the back of the Note 8. In any case, rumors have it that the phone's rear includes a dual camera, in addition to a fingerprint scanner (à la Galaxy S8).

As a reminder, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to sport a 2160 x 4428 pixels screen of around 6.3-inches, almost certainly becoming the largest Note phone to date, despite its thin bezels. The new device will probably have different processors inside, depending on market - in the US, it should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU, while an Exynos 8895 chipset may be found inside the international model.

So, what do you think about the design of Samsung's next-generation Galaxy Note thus far? Does the handset surprise you in any way?

And with a narrow screen aspect ratio and curved display it will have less room on the screen for note taking.

S Pen and curved screens just don't belong together, otherwise it's shaping up to be a beast. Unfortunately no other phone has the pen, so it's the one to get.

You can simply keep scrolling dude. It's 6.3 will be great.

I'm not trolling, and there is no reason to sensor comments to just good comments. I'm a huge fan of the note series and I feel let down by the curved displays. My opinion and I've got the right to share it.

He missed what I meant big time. I was talking specifically about scrolling on screen off memo.

No, unlike the other Plus models, it's actually different.

And the iPhone 7 Plus is literally an iPhone 7 with...nothing . So what?

It will have added functionality, which the Note always has.

I can not wait for my S8+ with a spen! For those who haven't used a spen you just don't realize it's more than just a s series with a spen.

Bucky - The iPhone 7 plus is just and iPhone 7. So, what about it? Remember Steve Jobs was the one who said that 3.5 was the perfect screen size and that Apple would never have a bigger display on its device while he was around. He is gone now and guest what?
Anyway this is more than an 8++ the camera alone is a huge improvement and the added functionality of the pen is what most people purchase this for.

Oh, Remember what Jobs said about the stylus ? Guest what?

Lol sheep Bucky. An S8+ with an s-pen beats the crap out of what the iPhone 8 is going to be.

Besides, you are talking like a stylus and digitizer doesn't make a huge difference.

I guess an iPad Pro is just an iPad Air 2 with an Apple Pencil you have to buy separately right? Lol sheep.

"S Pen and curved screens just don't belong together..."

Did you own the Note 7 to be making that comment? Because I did & what you said is inaccurate. In fact, I used the Edge features more when I had the Note 7 vs when I had to settle for the S7 Edge.

To be fair, writing or drawing all the way out to the edge is impractical even on a Note 4, despite it having a relatively thick bezel around the display. You have to hold the phone somewhere and since Samsung uses a Wacom pen with absolute palm rejection, unlike Apple's fruity toy pen on their tablets, you actually use the phone as a rest for your writing-hand.

Same thing said about the Note 7. Yet that turned out to be false.

Even with the curve the Notebdiaplay as bigger than the Note 5.

Please be quiet, you domt k ow what you're talking about.

I'm curious, when you were in a school and you wrote on paper, did you use 100% of a single page? No!

So what exactly is your point. Oh right, you didn't make one.

My sentiment is exactly the same as yours. I do like the 2:1 screen ratio though more than any other ratio - so that's a positive for me. Hoping that developers make apps to fit that properly - and I'm good to go.

But yes, the edge and s-pen don't mix in my opinion.

Now just announce the prices and the discounts for previous Note 7 owners. Of course excluding those who refused to return theirs in a timely fashion.
