New leaks show Catchy Design of Samsung Galaxy Note 8

18 June 2017

The alleged smartphone has already been the subject of several leaks and rumors but until the device becomes official we are expecting more details to pop up online.

However, to take the crown of "best phone of the year" the Galaxy Note 8 will have to beat its popular sibling - the Galaxy S8. The Emperor Edition could be exclusive to China.

The latest trend is bezel-less and edge-to-edge displays in smartphones, but rumours of integrating a fingerprint scanner under the display has been circulating around the web for a while now.

Another leak, meanwhile, claims to show the front panel of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, revealing the location of the iris scanner, front camera, and ear speaker.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 looks likely to be released in the autumn and there's plenty of reasons for fans of this phablet to be exited.

The purported Galaxy Note 8 has also surfaced on the HTML5Test benchmark with model number SM-N950F, which measures browser performance.

Interestingly, the overall design kind of resembles the Samsung Galaxy S8 series. Pan thinks that the Note 8 will not have this feature at all, while Apple will be the first "foreign" - i.e., outside of China - manufacturer to launch this feature. Thus, there is a pretty good chance that the S-Pen's rumored speaker and microphone could correspond to Samsung equipping the Note 8 with upgraded dictation capabilities.

The Galaxy Note 8 could also have a textured Bixby button that would feel different to the touch than the volume rocker so that users can easily distinguish between them.

Other Chinese smartphone makers, Xiaomi and Huawei, are also expected to bring smartphones with on-screen fingerprint scanner, but it is not happening anytime soon.
