Last week delivered a shock: arguably the Galaxy Note 8’s biggest title underline will not make it into a final design. Now dual new leaks have have reliable this… 


Posting on Twitter Jonathan Endicott, CEO of renouned box builder Slickwraps, revealed a wanton CAD of a Note 8 that again shows that Samsung has not managed to confederate a fingerprint reader into a display.

According to a CAD, Samsung has increasing a stretch of a behind mounted fingerprint reader from a behind camera.

This should meant users don’t blemish their camera lens so often, something Samsung recognized happens so frequently with a Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus that it extrinsic a unchanging warning that users should remember to purify their camera lens. Yes, a reader a) be in a arrangement to equivocate this totally or b) lay both some-more mainly and reduce down, though it’s something.

Next comes a ever inclusive Mobile Fun, that contacted me to endorse it has perceived Samsung’s central cases for a Galaxy Note 8.

The association isn’t pity images during this stage, though vocalization to me Mobile Fun reliable there are 21 cases widespread opposite 6 opposite ranges including simple and leather cases, two-piece support cases and cases that continue Samsung’s ‘LED view’ preview feature.

From this a site told me a following observations: a hated ‘Pop Covers’ will return, expected Galaxy Note 8 colors embody Orchid Grey, Deep Blue, Black, Silver and Gold and box RRPs have increasing from a luckless Galaxy Note 7 indicating a Galaxy Note 8 “is expected to be a lot some-more costly than a S8 operation of smartphones”.

And approbation a fingerprint sensor is on the back, it is not integrated into the main display.

So is Samsung doing adequate to lure users divided from the iPhone 8, that will launch around a same time? Arguably Samsung’s Infinity Display design should be adequate to lure millions as it is both a best and (easily) a many jaw dropping arrangement on smartphones today.

But faced with Apple’s ever larger iPhone 8 changes and Google’s supersized Pixel 2, I’m not so sure. we fear for Samsung and a Galaxy Note 8 given a jaw dropping cost tag
