A dummy unit of the Galaxy Note 8 has leaked online showing off the overall design of the upcoming phablet flagship device.
The leak clearly reveals the bezelless design and the ‘infinite display’ that we also seen earlier in other leaks.
The design hasn’t changed by a bit since we last reported the leaks and it looks exactly the same – except it’s a real photo instead of a render.
The dummy unit above basically confirms everything that we have seen earlier. It confirms the bezelless, infinite display, the rear ‘awkwardly’ place fingerprint sensor and the dual camera setup.
The design is less-rounded compared to the Galaxy S8 devices and looks a little more rectangular. The glass back on the device will most likely have the usual wireless charging option, and will likely be a fingerprint magnet.
Here’s what we can expect from the Galaxy Note 8 to have:
It will have a 6.3″ QHD Super AMOLED display with ‘no bezels’ on the top and bottom. The edges will slightly be curved, but not as much as it is on the Galaxy S8/+ flagships from Samsung.
The Note 8 is supposed to be equipped with Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 chipset in Europe and other parts of the world, while the US will get the Snapdragon 835 chipset. Both variants are expected to come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board and expandable storage.
The Bixby button will definitely be present on the Note 8, so prepare to download a ‘Bixby Re-mapper’ from the Play Store if you happen to buy the device and not use it – ever.
The battery is said to be 3300 mAh large. It should be plenty enough o get you through a day. Qualcomm’s quick charge will definitely be supported but it’s unclear if the Snapdragon version will have the Quick Charge 4.0 or 3.0 version available.
USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack port should also be available on the bottom right next to the S-Pen’s location.
As expected, The Note 8 will come with dual shooters on the back. Both will feature 12MP sensors. There will be one with a wide-angle one with f/1.7 aperture and OIS as well as dual-pixel autofocus, while the other one will have f/2.4 aperture with telephoto lens that’ll enable it to zoom 2x without losing any image quality. Both lenses are expected to have OIS.
On the front, an 8MP sensor will be placed with f/1.7 aperture to take selfies.
Launch colours should include the Midnight black as well as the Maple Gold versions. Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue and perhaps a Gold/Pink variant should also be available in September and later on.
Australia will likely get the Black and Gold variants on launch.
The price of the Note 8 will supposedly start at €999 in Europe and should be similarly priced all around the world.
Samsung will officially unveil the new Galaxy Note 8 at their event located in New York on 23 August.
