Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is still a couple of months away from officially being announced, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be early leaks and rumors about it. The latest comes from a Chinese social media website called Weibo, which showcases three different pictures of a 3D model for the Note 8, as well as a press render of what it could look like in the Coral Blue color. One of the images puts the Note 8 3D model next to the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, making inferences that the upcoming smartphone will be larger than most of their phones out on the market today. However, according to some earlier rumors, the Note 8 is expected pack a 6.3-inch display, which would make the S6 look much smaller to the device than what is shown in the image currently.
The 3D model does give us an early look at what the phone could look like, and if it is indeed correct, we could be seeing a vertical dual-camera setup on the back, as well as the standard, LED flash and heart rate monitor, which is located directly below it. On the front there are cutouts for the selfie camera as well as possible Iris scanning sensors. The model also hints that Samsung is sticking with the taller 18.5:9 aspect ratio, curved screen, and a nearly bezel-less design found on the S8. Furthermore, it also hints at the possibility of having two separate volume buttons on the left side of the device, instead of having a volume rocker like what is found on the S8. There will also be a dedicated Bixby button located below the volume buttons, and the power button will be on the opposite side of the phone. It is important to note that there isn’t a fingerprint sensor on the front or back of the device, which could mean that the company will include it underneath the display. Finally, In the Coral Blue render, a depiction of the upcoming SPen is shown, and it won’t look any different than past models.
The only thing Samsung confirmed about the Note 8 is the fact that they’ll officially announce it in the second half of 2017, so we still have to wait a couple of months to wait until then.
