Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Camera Setup And Headphone Jack Revealed In Latest Leak
A couple of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 leaks have surfaced fairly recently and they show a couple of features that will likely be found on the real thing. The most intriguing features of the Galaxy Note 8, as seen in the leaks, are the camera layout and the presence of the headphone jack.
The first leak is courtesy of a Facebook post by Tung Ha, a Vietnamese blogger. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8, according to the leak, will come with dual cameras, a feature many thought would be included in the Galaxy S8. Samsung seems to have rectified that mistake and placed dual cameras on its flagship phablet. Perhaps more interesting is Samsung's head-scratching move to keep the fingerprint scanner on the right side of the dual camera. The Korean conglomerate received some flak for the awkward location of the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8. The company had the opportunity to correct this mistake as well but it seems like Samsung is sticking to its guns.
Samsung did alter the layout a bit. The Galaxy Note 8 comes with a LED flash and heart rate sensor placed between the dual camera and the fingerprint scanner. This means there's a little more space separating the two features which will keep the user from touching and smudging the camera when reaching for the fingerprint scanner.
Keeping the fingerprint scanner on the rear of the Galaxy Note 8 is highly indicative of Samsung failure to implement it on the display, as noted by GSMArena. Apple is rumored to be having a hard time with its fingerprint sensor as well. In fact, the latest report is that Apple will completely ditch the feature with the iPhone 8.
The second leak concerns a trio of photos of a case for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, according to ValueWalk. The photos of the case render, also provided by Tung Ha, parallel the layout of the dual camera and sensors at the back of the Galaxy Note 8. What's striking is the cut out on the bottom side of the case which indicates the presence of the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 8.
