Leaked image has surfaced online allegedly showcasing the glass protective screen cover for the upcoming Galaxy Note 8. As expected, the handset looks like a lot like a Galaxy S8+ that’s been stretched diagonally — and we aren’t complaining.
Just like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the Galaxy Note 8 sports a near bezel-less design. However, recent reports claim that it’s a little thicker to house the S Pen and the much-anticipated dual-camera module.
The Galaxy Note 8 measures in at approximately 162.4 x 74.5 x 8.4mm, with the thickness jumping up to 9.5mm when you factor in the camera bump, but its weight is currently unknown.
Unfortunately, Samsung decided against installing an optical fingerprint reader on the Galaxy Note 8, so it’s embedded a traditional scanner alongside the camera, LED flash and heart rate monitor on the rear of the device.
Leaks and rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 8 will sport a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge Infinity Display (18.5:9 aspect ratio), an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 CPU, 6GB of RAM and at least a 3,300mAh battery.
That performance won’t come cheap, though. The Galaxy Note 8, which should be available in three colors — black, blue and gold — is expected to be Samsung’s most expensive smartphone to date, carrying an eye-watering price tag of $1,100.
