Newly leaked Galaxy Note 8 image shows the position of the fingerprint reader


Last updated: June 27th, 2017 at 17:01 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s next S Pen-toting phablet is expected to be launched by the end of August, and we’ve been noticing a steady flow of leaks showcasing its possible design, features, and specifications. However, with just a couple of months to go before the official unveiling, the Galaxy Note 8 leak floodgates have opened, and we’re finally getting to see more legible information regarding the device.

Earlier today, we reported about leaked 3D CAD renders of the Galaxy Note 8, and now an additional 3D CAD image has surfaced. The image has been published by BGR, and the publication mentions that the image comes directly from the factory that is tasked with building the new phone. The image showcases the placement of the dual-camera setup along with the location of the fingerprint reader.

The positioning of the fingerprint reader on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has been criticized by a lot of users and experts, but it seems that Samsung has decided to continue with a rear-facing fingerprint reader. However, there’s now more separation between the camera sensor and the fingerprint reader. But that also means that it will be even harder to reach without repositioning your palm.

Other than that, we can see a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, a loudspeaker, the primary microphone, and the S Pen slot at the bottom of the phone. There’s a Galaxy S8-like volume rocker and Bixby button combo on the left side of the Galaxy Note 8 as well as a curved back. We’re not sure if the phone has stereo speakers as some leaks and reports mentioned.

The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch QHD+ Infinity Display, a 12-megapixel optically stabalized dual-camera setup with dual-pixel phase detection autofocus and 4K video recording, Exynos 8895 processor, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. The phone is rumored to pack in a smaller 3300 mAh battery in spite of a slightly larger display. It is expected to be launched sometime in September with a $1000 price tag.
