A series of renders, together with a short 360-degree video, surfaced online on Tuesday, allegedly showcasing the design of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8.
For the most part, the Galaxy Note 8 appears to be a slightly larger, squarer version of the Galaxy S8 Plus that’s equipped with an S Pen and a dual-camera.
The handset measures in at approximately 162.4 x 74.5 x 8.4mm, according to 91Mobiles. Although, the thickness apparently spikes to 9.5mm when you factor in the protruding camera bump.
It would appear that Samsung listened to feedback from Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus owners, as it’s moved the fingerprint reader to the right of the heart rate monitor.
We already knew that the Galaxy Note 8 wasn’t going to sport the optical scanner the firm’s been working on, but we’d have preferred to see a more ergonomic solution, like a center-mounted reader, similar to the one found on the Pixel and Pixel XL.
The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display (18.5:9 aspect ratio), an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 CPU, 4/6GB of RAM and at least a 3,300mAh battery.
The Galaxy Note 8 could be Samsung’s most expensive smartphone
Recent leaks point towards the Galaxy Note 8 carrying an eye-watering price tag of $1,100 and if that turns out to be true, it will be the most expensive flagship smartphone Samsung’s ever produced.
