Exclusive: Galaxy Note 8 renders show off Samsung’s potential future

The Galaxy Note 7 was leading the fight to be our phone of the year in 2016, so when the recall happened, we were crushed.

Luckily, it appears that Samsung has gotten back up on the horse. We know the recalled Note 7’s are resurfacing as the rumored Galaxy Note FE, and from all of the rumors we’ve heard, it certainly looks like a Note 8 is indeed on the way.

The TechnoBuffalo crew is an impatient lot. We admit it. We sit at our desks every day writing up all of these rumors, and it kills us to have to wait for the official images to come out. Just as we did with the OnePlus 5, we turned to Benjamin Geskin to help us create renders of the device.

Let us be very clear: These renders are based on rumors, not schematics, CAD files or anything else. The colors are all hues that have been used by Samsung in the past, but beyond that there is no insider information involved here.

This is essentially a love letter to what we hope to see when the Galaxy Note 8 launches.

We also decided to see how the Galaxy Note 8 would look without and with a fingerprint reader on the back in case Samsung can’t get the under the screen technology to work. This gallery is without the reader.

This second gallery is where you  will find what the Galaxy Note 8 might look like if Samsung does have to place the fingerprint reader on the back of the device.

We’re excited to see what Samsung has in store for all of us when it comes to the Galaxy Note 8. Until the company officially unveils the phone, however, we’re just going to have to use these renders to fuel our dreams.

Of course, what we’re showing you is all external. The true magic of any phone resides under the hood. We’ve heard the Galaxy Note 8 will have a dual camera setup consisting of a 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS and 13-megapixel telephoto CIS. It is also rumored to use an Exynos series (8895) processor, 6GB of RAM and iris recognition.

Enjoy these renders, and be sure to let us know if you would like to see more original renders.
