Latest Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Leak Shows Design Flaws
The debacle that is the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is becoming more and more like a fading memory thanks to the success of the Galaxy S8 and the impressive rumors circling the Galaxy Note 8. This time, a new leak shows the possible design of the Galaxy Note 8 but there are some features that may not suit well for some.
The latest leaked renders coming from "OnLeaks" and "91Mobiles" show a Galaxy Note 8 from different angles. Most noticeable with this render are the oddly placed camera and fingerprint sensor. As 9to5Google pointed out, the Galaxy Note 8 will be the first Samsung device with a dual camera system. While that is a major plus, its orientation and location may take some getting used to. The dual camera is situated off-center and in a horizontal manner.
Interestingly, Samsung placed the fingerprint sensor beside the LED flash which is beside the dual camera. One of the major criticisms with the Galaxy S8 is the placement of the fingerprint scanner at the right of the camera. Doing the same with the Galaxy Note 8 is a head-scratching move. This also shows that Samsung failed to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the display, a problem that continues to bug Apple and the iPhone 8.
A 3D CAD drawing of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 obtained by BGR confirms the aforementioned leak. The schematics of the Galaxy Note 8 were supposedly acquired from the factory where the phablet is being manufactured.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will sport a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. This means, like the Galaxy S8, the Note 8 will have a bezel-less display. The Galaxy Note 8 will also be powered by either Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor or the Exynos 8895 chipset. The Samsung phablet will have 6GB of RAM a 3,300 mAh battery and a better S-pen. The leak also shows that the Galaxy Note 8 will have a Bixby button and a glass rear. The flagship phablet will be available for an estimated $1,000.
