Leaked Galaxy Note 8 press render confirms design

Samsung isn’t due to unveil the Galaxy Note 8 until August 23 but that doesn’t mean the leaks will stop coming in. Several leaked renders and schematics of the Galaxy Note 8 have already tried to give us a sense of the handset’s design. Earlier today, an official-looking press render of the Galaxy Note 8 was leaked online.

We’ve now been treated to yet another press render of the Galaxy Note 8. The handset is shown in Midnight Black and Gold colors. It also confirms the rumors that we’ve heard so far about the handset’s design.

It’s evident that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to have a 6.3-inch Infinity Display with a rather impressive screen-to-body ratio. There’s a physical Bixby button on the left side and the fingerprint sensor has been relocated to the back since it doesn’t have a home button.

As far as the design is concerned, the Galaxy Note 8 basically looks like a stretched Galaxy S8, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The render, leaked by @evleaks, also confirms that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to be Samsung’s first flagship smartphone to feature a dual camera system.

Samsung will confirm more information about the Galaxy Note 8 at its event in New York which takes place on August 23.

No thanks, not interested… It’s just too long for me and my pockets. I hope Note 9 does not measure 175 mm long.

Using the regular S8 now. My last true Note was the Note 4. Still the best “Note” ever made. But I am not saying that it was the best “phone” though.

Hopefully Samsung puts the camera vertical… Would put the fingerprint in a better position ?

I am very disappointed by the rear of the Galaxy Note 8.

This black block is really very unsightly.
The back of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were very successful. Not that of Note 8.

I’m a big fan of the Note series.
Nevertheless I hesitate to buy the Note 8. Let’s wait for the final version but I’m afraid ! …

Samsung needs to listen to its customers. The note 7 was a hit – regardless of the bullshit battery issues. I now have the Note FE and just sold the S8+ as it was too long, not wide enough and impossible to use the stupidly placed fingerprint sensor. Now its getting longer again I’d assume its equally as cumbersome to use. Samsung is clearly tightening the belt my replicating what they’ve done with the S8 and rolling it out with a pen and calling it a note. This isn’t what customers look for in the note series Samsung. THEY ARE… Read more »

Getting the plus and calling it too big only makes you look silly. get the normal S8 then and see your troubles disappear. the Notes have always been larger and with an S Pen, those are the stand out functions from the S series, as well as the design ( which was leather for a couple of years) before they settled with glass on glass metal sandwich, which works perfectly. Don’t know what you’re expecting. the new aspect ratio is better for multitasking and fits more comfortably in the hand and pocket.

Maybe you have deep pockets, the S8 (non plus) definitely doesn’t fit on mine.

Samsung these days is a form over function Apple wannabe. Except they don’t offer the support you get from Apple.

Yeah, because apple have ALWAYS had IP68 casing, and a beautiful symmetrical design that’s comfortable hold and the best display of any manufacturer, fast wireless and wired charging. theme support, and full multitasking capabilities. Yeah, Samsung copied ALL of that from Apple(!) and no, I’ve pretty standard clothing and the S8+ fits completely in my work blazer so. you need to get your head out of Apples ass and breathe in some fresh perspective!

You need to be a bit less rude. And a bit less of a Samsung’s fanboy.

I do not like Apple, which is one of the reasons why I liked Samsung’s far better when their designs were made of plastic, practical, and built to last.

Exactly.. I hate that it’s gonna be so long. I Hope Note 9 does not measure 175 mm long.

Using the regular S8 now. My last true Note was the Note 4. Still the best “Note” ever made, though obviously not the best “phone”.

Will perhaps never buy Samsung if the long goes any further than say about 150 mm

ugly design indeed……..Less width,more length,pointed corners and horizontal arrangement of Cameras…………,
disappointed with this design..Why samsung dont listen to fans pertaining fingerprint scanner.It would be better to remove fingerprint scanner instead of placing it at the top of the phone which is very irritating..
Waiting for Note 9……

because fans are not right about every thing and they are not making the phone. you cannot demand technology that is not there.. i.e. the inbuilt fingerprint scanner in the display and horizontal/ vertical camera arrangements means nothing in the real world of photography. it would not be better to remove the fingerprint scanner because its way too convenient and a stupid idea because iris scanning is not 100% reliable.

Forcing the curved design again Samsung? I guess my time with them is done.
I can begrudgingly deal with the fingerprint on the back and I want a home button – but the curved display? That one is concrete, absoloutely no sale, nope.

You’re talking like you have never held an edge device, and as an owner of an S8+ I can confidently tell you I have never accidentally touched the edge of the display, their palm rejection on this device is perfect and never held a more comfortable device. nothing compares

I think Apple will win the screen award this year.

Make it known that I am not an Apple fan. In fact, I’m one of the few who were bold enough to keep their Note 7 and I still use it.

They can’t because they are using a Samsung Panel! lol
and it will not be bigger than a 1080p display or 1080+

Anyone who kept their Note7 is an asshole.

So, still the Bixby-button that is useless for most of the world and the fingerprint sensor at the back … What a shame.

I kinda like the “ugliness” of this design, I see it as more industrial and shows what the Note is all about. Power and feature packed device, sure design needs to be good but Notes have always been about functionality and the move from the professional looking leather to this industrial looking piece of machinery is pretty neat.
