Samsung Galaxy Note 8 prototype leaks out, reportedly enters testing

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has been the target of a new leak which reveals 3D printed prototype images of this upcoming device. The images throw light on a few features and confirms the dual camera set-up.

Coming out of China via country’s microblogging site Weibo, the prototype images show Galaxy Note 8 from both the front and rear. One of the images throw light on the massive Note 8 screen which past rumors have suggested to be either 6-inch or 6.3-inch. Another notable feature is the bezel-less look akin to Galaxy S8 an S8+ as well as an iris scanner in the front.

All the past reports that Galaxy Note 8 will sport rear dual cameras has received further confirmation with these prototype images which show the back of Galaxy Note 8 donning two cameras placed in a vertical manner with LED flash below it.

These are some of the features that have been doing the rounds for a while now. But what caught our attention was the absence of a fingerprint scanner on the rear. And with the bezel-less front, there’s only one logical explanation to this. That Samsung will follow Xiaomi Mi6 trend and carry an underglass fingerprint scanner in Galaxy Note 8.
