As we get closer to the inevitable announcement, we are getting more and more leaks regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. We got a brief look at the phone last month and just two weeks ago, we heard that this could end up being Samsung’s most expensive phone ever. Now, it looks like official images are starting to hit the web, showing off the Note 8’s Infinity Display in all its glory.
This particular image leak comes via Slashleaks and it shows a front render of the Galaxy Note 8, featuring a curved Infinity Display, measuring in at 6.3-inches. At this size, it would be slightly larger than the Galaxy S8 Plus, while maintaining a high screen to body ratio.

While this leak doesn’t confirm specs, we have previously heard that the Note 8 will keep the same Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 SoC found in the Galaxy S8 but there will be 6GB of RAM instead of 4GB. The Note 8 will also apparently jump to a dual-camera design but unfortunately, the fingerprint sensor may also stay up by the camera- one of the more common complaints about the Galaxy S8.
KitGuru Says: The lines between the Galaxy S and Note appear to be getting blurred this year. While the core SoCs will remain the same, there will be more RAM in the Note for multitasking, S-Pen support and a better camera. Size and design-wise though, it will be difficult to differentiate it from the S8 Plus.
