In today’s Galaxy Note8-related leak, a purported screen protector for the smartphone has been photographed in the wild somewhere. If this is a real Note8 screen protector, created based on Samsung’s official schematics for the handset, then by taking a peek at it we can basically learn what the shape of the phablet’s screen is going to be.
The rounded display corners introduced with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are here to stay, it seems. As you’d expect, the screen’s edges are curved, again like in the S8 duo. The bezels are minimal throughout, so this panel will clearly be labeled Infinity Display by Samsung too.
The top bezel is so small that it looks like there’s barely enough room over there for the selfie camera, earpiece, and various sensors. The top and bottom bezels seem to be symmetrical, which is very good news for those who suffer from OCD.
The source of this leak claims the Galaxy Note8 will be “sexy” and “more beautiful than the S8″. And it will obviously come with an S Pen stylus built-in.
According to one previous leak, the Note8 will arrive in late September, priced at €999. It should sport a 6.3-inch 18.5:9 AMOLED touchscreen, dual 12 MP rear cameras with OIS, and a fingerprint scanner on the back.
It will be powered either by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 or Samsung’s own Exynos 8895, aided by 6GB of RAM. Storage is expected to be 64 or 128GB. The battery will be a 3,300 mAh cell.
