Samsung Galaxy Note 8 design

From the alleged images and renders of the Galaxy Note 8 seen so far, the phablet appears a lot like the flagship Galaxy S8 series, only with a bigger footprint. According to the image shared by tipster Evan Blass, the Galaxy Note 8 has almost no bezels on its left and right side with only thin bezels seen at the top and bottom. The phablet is said to come with a 6.3-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. As per The Investors report, the Galaxy Note 8 will use a Pressure Sensitive Display similar to what has been seen on Apple iPhone 6S and above.

Only physical buttons that can be seen on the phablet are the volume rocker, power/unlock button and the dedicated button to pull up Bixby assistant from any app on the device. The Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come with a dual-camera setup on the rear panel with a slightly different position for the fingerprint scanner.
