Galaxy Note 8 breaks cover in suspicious render


Last updated: June 7th, 2017 at 09:39 UTC+02:00

An alleged render of the much-anticipated Galaxy Note 8 surfaced online on Tuesday, and while it should be taken with a hefty pinch of salt because its authenticity can’t be verified, it’s awfully similar to what we envisage the handset looking like, with an Infinity Display, a higher screen-to-body ratio than the Galaxy S8, a dual-camera on the rear and an embedded fingerprint scanner.

Purported specifications include an in-house Exynos series (8895) processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and stereo speakers tuned by AKG. The Galaxy Note 8 is also said to sport a texturized Bixby button to prevent people from mistaking it for the volume down key, which has been a popular complaint amongst Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners.

As we’ve said in the past, the Galaxy Note 8 is set to be Samsung’s first smartphone in the Galaxy Note lineup since the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, so it’s really going to need to pull out all the stops to win back former customers. If recent rumors are true, we could see the handset unveiled during this year’s IFA trade show in Berlin on September 1.
