After months of rumours as we’re drawing close to the confirmed launch date for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, VentureBeat’s Evan Blass has leaked the final render of the device as well as some specifications.
The Galaxy Note 8 is set to be unveiled at an event in New York City on August 23, 2017. The upcoming flagship device from the South Korean manufacturer will go head to head with Apple’s upcoming iPhone, rumoured to launch in September.
According to the latest leaked images, the Galaxy Note 8 looks quite similar to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ launched earlier this year.
The noticeable dissimilarities are the squared edges and the slight replacement of the fingerprint sensor which is now located a bit away from the camera lens. Now maybe you’ll smudge the lens a bit less than the flash.
