We have already seen a couple of leaks and reports about the Samsung Galaxy Note8. Now, a 3D CAD drawing of the upcoming flagship from Samsung has been shared by BGR. The render shows back of the Galaxy Note8 that highlights the fingerprint sensor and dual camera setup.

The fingerprint placement looks unchanged and is still placed next to the dual cameras. Although the Samsung Galaxy S8 has received praise for the design and features, it has been criticized for its awkward fingerprint scanner placement. The fingerprint sensor was shifted to the back from the front due to the infinite display however, many users have stated that unlocking the phone is cumbersome.

Meanwhile, the dual camera setup is horizontal with lenses and LED flash placed next to each other. Earlier rumor revealed that the phone will have a 12 MP wide-angle lens supporting dual photodiodes, along with a 13 MP telephoto lens, OIS on both.

The Galaxy Note8 is expected to sport a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio and QHD+ (1440 x 2960) resolution of the S8 series. It might be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 chipset depending on the region, have 6GB RAM and a 3300mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is said to come in Black, Blue and Gold colors.
