Noted product leaker, Evan Blass, has posted an image of the Galaxy Note 8 on twitter. It shows front, back, and side profile in two colors. The fingerprint scanner is in the same troublesome location as the Galaxy S8, and there appears to be a dedicated Bixby button.

There have been numerous Galaxy Note 8 leaks over the last month and a half, such as designs from case makers revealing a cutout for a 3.5mm audio jack, or another showing an extra-wide cut out around the rear camera and finger print sensor indicating a possible dual camera setup.

A few hours ago, Evan Blass released an image on twitter showing front, back, and side profile shots of a phone claiming to be the Galaxy Note 8, including the iconic stylus. The phone appears to be a taller and less rounded version of the Galaxy S8, although we can't tell if it has still maintained the 18.5:9 aspect ratio, or if it is stretched further.

The front is a beautiful single pane of glass, with the same infinity bezels as the Galaxy S8. There are also numerous sensors along the top which likely support facial recognition. The rear is indeed showing a dual camera setup, but unfortunately the fingerprint sensor is still located next to the lens. Given that the Note 8 looks taller than the S8 unlocking the phone with fingerprint might be tricky with that placement. Based on the button layout of the Galaxy S8 we can assume that the button on the right is for power, with the left having a volume rocker and dedicated Bixby button.

While these just appear to be renders designed for press or marketing, the fact that they have come from Evan Blass (@evleaks) lends some weight to their authenticity — his leaks are often surprisingly accurate.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
