An alleged dummy unit of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has appeared online in two images posted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. Along with the images, a video has also surfaced, comparing the physical dimensions of the upcoming phablet with the Galaxy S7 Edge.
We can see quite clearly that the dummy unit features a dual-camera setup at the rear, with the two sensors laid out vertically. Below the dual-camera setup is an LED flash and what appears to be a heart-rate sensor. We do not see any fingerprint scanner at the back, nor is there a physical home button on the front of the device. This suggests Samsung might have switched to an under-glass fingerprint sensor embedded into the display. Samsung was rumored to integrate this feature in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, but it couldn’t be done due to the technology not being ready in time for their commercial launch.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch sized display with a similar bezel-less front as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Under the hood, some units are likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chip while others could be powered by the Exynos 8895.
