The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Surfaces In Display Panel & Cut-Out Leak; Allegedly Sports Thinner Bezels Than Galaxy S8
June has been a good month when we talk about leaks related to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. A lot of information has surfaced on the device so far. The majority of it confirms what we’ve already suspected for Samsung’s 2017 flagship phablet. The Note 8 will follow in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+’s footsteps. Not only will the device be powered by the Snapdragon 835, but Samsung will also show its display manufacturing prowess once again with the smartphone. Today, we’ve got more details for the device’s display. Take a look below to find out more.
Samsung Might Reduce Bezels Even More On The Galaxy Note 8 Suggest Component Leaks
So far, we’ve got little information on what specifications and features the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will feature. While its processor is confirmed, since both Samsung and Qualcomm are unlikely to manufacture a new SoC this year, especially in time for the Note 8, other details are scarce. What we have witnessed are visual leaks for the device. Some schematics, display panel leaks and renders provide the earliest base of information to build until August.
Today, another pair of such images has come to light. It resembles previous leaks for the Galaxy Note 8 so we get a chance at corroboration. As it’s expected, Samsung will greatly decrease the bezels on the Galaxy Note 8. The Korean tech giant’s design with the Galaxy S8+ and S8+ has won it a lot of fans and rightly so. The pair are perhaps the best designed smartphones of the year and Samsung’s best too. So it’s no surprise that the Note 8 will borrow from them as well.
Taking a look at the images above, we get mixed signals. The first is allegedly the Galaxy Note 8’s display panel and the second is its display cutout. Both present different pictures. For the first, we see that the Note 8 will feature side bezels, though at a minimum level. For the second, there are no side bezels and the screen to body ratio increases over the Galaxy S8 and S8+ – which is a positive sign.
Another feature which both the images confirms is that there won’t be a front facing fingerprint sensor on the Note 8. Some alleged design blueprints claim that Samsung will place the sensor on the rear of the phablet. However, we really hope that this isn’t the case since it marks a move ‘back’ into time rather than forward. Samsung also has got to make up for a lot on the Note lineup this year, following the Note7’s disaster. Needless to say, there’s a lot left to surface until August hit. Till then, stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We’ll keep you updated on the latest.
