Samsung’s flagship, Galaxy Note 8 is near its launching date and, so far, we’ve been informed about how it would be like through various leaks. The latest one just hit us by a well-known leaker, Evan Blass today.
He tweeted this morning, when it rains, it pours. Not even a day had passed this, he posted the official image of the front of the Samsung’s upcoming flagship handset. He, again, returned with a few more pictures that display the back, side, and stylus of the phone.

The phone is to be unveiled on August 23rd, but we have a good idea of what we might see in the official launch event. The handset has the edge-to-edge Infinity Display, similar to what we see in Galaxy S8, and the bezels are even slimmer. Samsung has also retained S8’s dedicated Bixby Button, placed on the right side of the device, and, on the back, we have a dual-camera system with dual flash.
This leaked picture also reveals a fingerprint sensor in the same position as the Galaxy S8’s, on the back of the phone, to the side of the camera. This positioning was criticized by reviewers, who found it hard to reach, and said it led to users unexpectedly smudging their own camera lenses. However, it seems the option (placing the sensor underneath the glass at the front of the phone) is not yet ready for full-scale manufacturing.
Of course, Samsung has to keep things right and eliminate doubts regarding the new handset, due to the failure of its successor Galaxy Note 7. What we are actually going to see at the launch is yet to be decided.
