New Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Leak Reveals an Unexpected Design Change

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

It won’t be long before we see the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and as usual, leaks and rumors are all over with respect to this phablet.

We have already seen what Samsung is capable of when it comes to smartphone designs. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are just too awesome and if anything, that’s exactly what fans of the Galaxy Note 8 are waiting to see when the phablet comes out later in September.

Many were impressed with the frontal design of the Galaxy S8 pair – a beautifully curved panel with close to zero bezels. If the latest rumors about the Galaxy Note 8 are to be believed, this phone will keep just about the same design on the front panel, but probably with a much better screen to body ratio. However, it appears that the phone is set to undergo a major redesign as far as the back panel is concerned.

According to newly leaked images of the Note 8 based on CAD, the camera arrangement on the back of the phone is something you’ve never seen before on a Sammy device. The setup will be horizontal and with a huge camera bump that will up the thickness of the phone from 8.4mm in other sections to a massive 9.5mm on the camera area.

This camera, as rumored, is a dual-lens setup and unlike the S8 where the fingerprint scanner is close to the sensors, the placement on the Note 8 is a little distant towards the right, which should make it less of a hassle when trying to reach it. Similar to the S8, the Galaxy Note 8 renders also confirm a USB-C port, 3.5mm audio jack, speaker as well as the S Pen slot.

Other features of the Galaxy Note 8 to expect include a 6.3-inch QHD+ display screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/6 processor paired with at least 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage with room to expand it. There’s also talk of a massive 8GB RAM variant that could be directed to the Chinese market, but similar to most of these details, this one is still a rumor that should be taken with a grain of salt.
