Not long ago, we have told you about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might rock the Snapdragon 836 chipset that would be the most powerful ever made by Qualcomm.
First and foremost, let’s start it with the camera setup.
The image confirms that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might have a dual rear camera setup. Though the specifications for the setup are unclear as of right now, we would guess it would be a pair of 16+20MP setup with f/1.7 aperture for the primary and f/2.2 for the secondary sensor. Of course, this isn’t confirmed, so take it with a pinch of salt as always.
The dual camera setup and the fingerprint sensor should not protrude a lot, but it could be enough to the break the camera glasses in case you would accidentally drop your new shiny device. Just something to keep in mind.
Apparently the flagship Galaxy S8/Plus duo did not have the dual camera rear setup because Samsung ran out of time and couldn’t finalise the design to make it to the final version.
Second, it’s the location of the fingerprint sensor.
We have posted an article confirming that the new in-screen fingerprint sensors would finally arrive as early as Q1 2018, therefore the Note 8 is confirmed to not have the fingerprint sensor built underneath the display unfortunately.
The image clearly confirms the same “awkward” position for the Note 8, putting it up in the left hand corner of the back of the device.
This is certainly not good news for those who didn’t buy the Galaxy S8 because of the badly placed fingerprint sensor. Well, it seems like the smudges will still be here for the Note 8 as you’ll be unlocking your phone with a sensor that will be right next to your dual camera setup.
The image also confirms the location of the LED flash, heart rate sensor, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port on the bottom as well as the slot for the S-Pen.
We also have 2 images below and a video that shows off real life renders to give you a glimpse of what the real deal could look like in August. It clearly shows the design language that Samsung seems to follow in the past 2-3 years or so and looks realistic and absolutely believable.
Don’t forget that these are renders though.
