A new leak has let us see the first real images of Samsung Galaxy Note 8, a long awaited terminal with which the South Korean company will have the opportunity to recoup the failure that lived with Galaxy Note 7.
We had already seen in previous reports that this new large format terminal would maintain the basic lines of the Note range, but with new details imported directly from Galaxy S8.
One of the clearest and most important changes is the commitment to a SuperAMOLED panel with 18: 9 format, which makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 into an all-screen terminal that totally lacks physical buttons on the front.
This raises the same challenge that the South Korean firm lived with the Galaxy S8, the need to place the fingerprint reader in another area of the terminal.
The first rumors indicated that Samsung was able to integrate it right on the screen, but the latest information disprove it and confirm that it has had no choice but to repeat the location we saw on the Galaxy S8 (back side of the camera).
New rumors have also surfaced that not even the Galaxy S9 will have a fingerprint reader built into the screen, and that Samsung will only make that leap with the launch of the Galaxy Note 9.
It is too far to predict an independent story but it is interesting, especially since it gives us an idea of the evolution that could mark the next smartphones of the South Korean firm.
We remind you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be presented on August 23 and that unless surprised will have the following specifications:
- 3-inch SuperAMOLED screen.
