We may have just gotten our first good look at Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, thanks to this detailed render.
Although these aren’t photos, the new images are design renders based on what we know from prior leaks.
The images come from OnLeaks, which developed the designs with 91mobiles. The renders provide an up-close look at the front and back side of the handsets.
The 6.3-inch display is about what we expected — it’s widely thought the front of the Note 8 will look similar to the 6.2-inch S8+, but the back offers an intriguing look at how Samsung plans to implement its dual-camera design.
The images show two cameras, previously reported to be 12 MP shooters with optical image stabilization, along with a fingerprint sensor on the right side of the lenses. That will likely be a big disappointment to many, as the fingerprint sensor on the S8 and S8+, which is also located near the rear facing camera, has been widely criticized.
You can get a better look at the renders on 91mobiles. They also made a video that gives a 360-degree view of the design.
Gadget blog BGR also came up with its own design render based on the earlier leaked specs, which matches up with OnLeak’s designs as well.
The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to launch later this year in September and will come with a steep price tag, according to reliable leaker Evan Blass who reports the flagship will start at €999 (or, about $1,132 in USD) for an unlocked model.
