Galaxy Note 8 Leaks Reveal Significant Design Changes

The Galaxy Note 8 is a big deal. For Samsung it must both restore faith in the badly damaged Note brand and stand up to Apple’s biggest iPhone reinvention in years. New leaks suggest it might just be on the right track…

Backing up renders and commercial cases I received for the Galaxy Note 8 are a trio of new leaks, all of which show the same consistent design, features and ports. Let’s break them down.

First up is historically reliable Vietnamese leaker Tung Ha, who has posted what he claims are official press renders of the Galaxy Note 8 on his popular Facebook page. The renders show familiar features:

Of course the notion of a rear mounted fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 8 would’ve been a deal breaker just a week ago. But following the iPhone 8’s big feature blow Samsung has been given a big helping hand here.

Next up is Chinese case maker SanFeng whose commercial cases for the Galaxy Note 8 leaked on Apple and Samsung treasure trove Weibo. The designs may be somewhat gaudy, but they again tie-in not only with Ha’s renders, but the commercial Galaxy Note 8 cases shown to me last week from popular case maker Olixar.

Yes, all the bullet points above from Ha’s images can again be ticked looking at the SanFeng cases with the exception of the headphone jack as we don’t get to see the bottom angle of the phone.

Lastly we go to Weibo again where physical Galaxy Note 8 cases again illustrate not only the space for the larger Infinity Display, but placement of the new dual rear camera, tweaked fingerprint sensor position and port cutout for the headphone jack.

Following multiple leaks from trusted sources last week I called it on Apple’s biggest 2017 secret saying: This is the iPhone 8. Following not just today’s leaks, but also further discussions I’ve had off the record I’m also now confident put my cards on the table for Samsung’s flagship handset. Ladies and gentleman: This is the Galaxy Note 8.
