If the source is to be believed then what we’re looking at is the rear camera assembly on Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy Note 8. Only thing is, I’ve no idea as to the legitimacy of the source—it’s literally some Thai dude on Facebook. But that didn’t stop the tech press from enthusiastically re-sharing it. Guess I’m similarly guilty. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This is supposedly a full press render of the phone from the same source. But since it was shared on Facebook the image’s resolution is limited to 800 pixels wide—less if you remove the empty space around the image, like I’ve done here.
And here’s a render of a Note 8 and case from a separate but equally dubious source, some random person on Twitter. It’s possible that this person took the Thai person’s render and Photoshopped a case onto it. Or it could be entirely legit.
From what I’ve read there seems to at least be a consensus that the Note 8 will sport dual rear cameras. As such, moving its fingerprint reader to the right of the flash (and presumably iris scanner) assembly will hopefully result in less accidental finger presses on the actual lenses. We’ll know for sure when Samsung makes its official announcement sometime in Q3.
