There are new leaks on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, with some of them being leaked by Samsung itself ‘accidentally’.
A tweet from Ice universe shows three images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and claims that it is indeed the Galaxy Note 8.
The latest images from Ice Universe are similar to the earlier press renders from SlashLeaks, which came in a few days back. SlashLeaks revealed a dual curved display without bezels on its sides. The top and bottom bezels are very slim, and the home button is missing. The front camera lens is present on the top bezel and so is the sensors and the earpiece. It seems that the power button as well as the volume rocker will be found on the left, whereas there will be a dedicated button for Bixby, the AI voice assistant, on the right side.
The latest renders reveal the Galaxy Note 8 as coming with a huge Infinity display, around 6.3 inches. There is no physical home button and the design seems to come with sharper angles, when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus.
If the renders offered by Ice Universe are accurate, the new users of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be very happy. Ice Universe had earlier leaked the design of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 accurately, so going by previous records; it is possible that the renders of the Galaxy Note 8 might also be accurate.
So what are the negative aspects of the Galaxy Note 8? The most controversial aspect of the Galaxy Note 8 is the rear of the smartphone. Olixar, which is a seller of smartphone cases, is offering cases for the Galaxy Note 8. The cases show that Samsung has not integrated the fingerprint reading functionality into the display of the phone. Instead, the fingerprint reader is placed in a position that seems a little silly, to say the least.
The renders offered by Ice Universe also don’t answer the questions regarding the headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 8. It is not clear whether Samsung will eliminate the headphone jack feature from the device.
There is another issue related to the renders by Ice Universe. The renders show the position of the battery percentage from 14% to 15%. It is not possible that official Samsung renders would ever show the position of the battery in such a low number. This means that Ice Universe is offering the renders from some information that it has got on its own, and that these images are certainly not obtained directly from Samsung.
Best Phones of 2017
2017 will be seeing the release of some top phones, including the Apple iPhone 8 and the Google Pixel 2 XL. Samsung will probably be hoping that the iPhone 8 might be coming with problems of its own. It could also be hoping that the Pixel 2 XL is not as great as the leaks promise it to be. Whatever the competition, it seems that the Galaxy Note 8 will be a force to reckon with among the releases this year.
