The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has gotten leaked once again, this time courtesy smartphone skin maker Slickwraps. The latter’s CEO recently tweeted out a CAD drawing of the handset captioned with the words “Working hard on the Note 8.”
The tweet doesn’t specify the source of the image. It’s possible the company has gotten a head start with regards to the Galaxy Note 8’s design so that it can manufacture accessories in time for the phone’s launch. The image additionally falls in line with other CAD images which have recently come to light.
Going by the photo, Samsung is set to retain the fingerprint scanner on the back of the handset. It had reportedly tried to incorporate a under-display solution but was unsatisfied with the results. Unlike the Galaxy S8, the dual cameras and fingerprint reader are separated by a small distance.
This should go a long way in avoiding annoying camera smudges, but probably won’t eliminate it from happening entirely. Speaking of the module, the Galaxy Note 8 is likely going to feature 12MP twin shooters. A previous report had indicated that the pair might boast of enhanced low-light photography skills and capture photos in color and monochrome.
Specs-wise, Samsung could make the device a bit bigger than the Galaxy S8+ with a huge 6.3-inch screen. There’s a strong chance it’ll sport the same Infinity Display and 18.5:9 aspect ratio as the former. Under the hood, you may find a 3200mAh battery, Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 processor, and 6GB of RAM.
Word on the street is that Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy Note 8 in August or September starting at a roughly $1000 price tag. We’ll keep you updated as and when more information emerges out of the woodwork.
