The latest leak involving the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are made up of several pictures captured of the device as opposed to renders. In a series of images posted by myeverydaytech.com we get some good looks at the front and back of the new device along with the S Pen. For Samsung, the leak appears to be unwelcome as the original post has been taken down despite the images already spreading out on the Internet.
On the back of the device, a couple issues may be worth noting. First, we see the dual camera setup, the LED flash and the fingerprint scanner are all contained within a separate block on the back of the device. For the Galaxy S8 devices, although these features are located in the same general area, they are each in their own separate opening in the otherwise solid back cover. You may also notice that Samsung has swapped the order of the components, putting the LED flash next to the fingerprint scanner instead of the camera lens. That could be a result of feedback on the Galaxy S8 devices where the rear-located fingerprint sensor – not a hit with reviewers – was leading many users to gum up their camera lens with fingerprints while trying to locate the scanner. This change in placement could help with that problem.
The front of the device appears very similar to the Galaxy S8, dominated by the Infinity display and minimal features to mar the otherwise smooth expanse of glass. We can also see on the side of the device the same placement of the volume rocker and dedicated Bixby button that is present on the Galaxy S8 devices.
The images also give us an up close look at the S Pen to come with the Note 8.
