Samsung’s Galaxy Note Fandom Edition, based on refurbished Galaxy Note 7 hardware may have just hit the streets in South Korea. But the company’s next big phone is due to launch soon. And now we have a pretty good idea of what the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 will look like.

A series of leaked images have hit the web in recent days, showing a phone that basically looks like a bigger Galaxy S8 Plus with the addition of a dual-lens rear camera and digital pen support.

Rumor has it that the new phone will have a 6.3 inch display and slim bezels. The pictures also show slim bezels and what seems to be a display with a wide aspect ratio, likely matching the 19.5:9 display used for Samsung’s Galaxy S8 series phones.

There’s a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, placed next to the camera system.

On the bottom of the phone, there’s a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a speaker grill, as well as a slot for storing the pen when it’s not in use.

Detailed specs aren’t available yet, but it’d be surprising if the phone shipped with anything less than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Some reports have indicated it’ll actually be one of the first phones with a souped up Snapdragon 836 chip.

The image below, by the way, comes from a case maker, showing what the phone will allegedly look like when outfitted with a case that can also apparently store a credit card or something.

  1. The slim bezel phones look nice, but don’t understand the appeal of the ultra tall screen aspect design (I would not call it ultra wide given the way you typically hold a phone.) A 6.3″ 19.5X9 screen gives you less HD viewing area than a conventional 5.5″ 16X9 phone. And much less than a 5.7″ phone like the older Note.

    I get the advantage of having a slimmer phone, but the extra area on the bottom really ends up being used for on-screen buttons anyway. So it seems more of a gimmick than anything. I’d far prefer a 16X9 phone with similarly small bezels.

  2. I’m waiting for camera specs before I get excited about this phone. However, I find it really disappointing that Samsung didn’t do anything to resolve the most unanimous concern people had with the S8, the fingerprint scanner next to the camera lens.
