Leaked video footage and still images have leaked online showing the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 design. The most immediate thing to draw from the leak is that the rumours of a much larger Galaxy Note appear to be true!
The leak comes via reputable source CaseMe, which has provided a lot of accurate information, details, and images in the past. The video and images appear to show the rumoured 6.3in display panel; 0.6in bigger than the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7. This means the Galaxy Note 8 will be one of the biggest smartphones Samsung has ever produced, and the biggest in the Galaxy Note series too.
As per the earlier rumours, the leak indicates Samsung will use the same Infinity Display design it used in the Galaxy S8 series to cram a much larger curved OLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio into a svelte (but tall) bodyshell with a very narrow bezel around the edge. Case in point, the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2in display and it is by no means an oversized phone.
Dutch website is also now corroborating reports that the Galaxy Note 8 will feautre an 18.5:9 “Infinity Display”; the site says it can confirm Samsung is in fact currently testing Galaxy Note 8 prototype units which are also running Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It suggests the Galaxy Note 8 will run this version straight out the box, which would be a first for Samsung’s stable, as up until now they have run Android 7.0 and have had subsequent updates.
What does this mean for the Galaxy Note 8? Well it depends what happens between now and the launch, but we’re expecting it’s an indication that Samsung may expand its storage options further afield in terms of availability.
