Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Renders & Details Leaked
Samsung is said to be planning for a quick release of the Galaxy Note 8 around September. A couple of renders of the Galaxy Note 8 leaked recently, basically giving us an idea of what the device may look like.
The leaked renders show the Galaxy Note 8 will have the same infinity display with a near-bezel-less front just like the Galaxy S8. The device will only have slight bezels at the top and bottom but the sides will be curved.
The renders only show the front view of the Galaxy Note 8 so we still haven’t got a view of the rear. However, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is said to come with dual cameras at the rear which consists of two 12MP sensors with Optical Image Stabilization. There will also a rear fingerprint sensor and as usual a Stylus pen.
The Galaxy Note 8 is also detailed in the leak to pack a 6.2-inch display and will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 chip on some models and an Exynos 8895 chip on some others.
