There were reports by news site BGR in late June that confirmed the final design of the Galaxy Note 8 with an exclusive leak showing a 3D CAD drawing from a factory that will be manufacturing the smartphone. There had been a little debate – before the exclusive report – about several important aspects of the design of new Note 8.
Slickwraps CEO leaks the design of the Galaxy Note 8
The Chief Executive Officer of a well-known company named Slickwraps, which is a quite popular maker of skins and cases of the iPhone and several other Android devices, posted new 3D drawings of the Note 8 and cleared all the debates in respect to the design of the phone. The pictures posted by the CEO of Slickwraps – Jonathan Endicott – align perfectly with the digital drawing that were circulated on the tech news site – BGR – last month.
Slickwraps is popular for making cases and skins for a wide range of Android smartphones as well as for iPhones. The company is standing to benefit from getting its hands on the designs of the smartphone, just like other third-party makers, because the smartphones were launched. The smartphone maker can, this way, have products ready for smartphones as soon as they are launched. The early adopters of the phone are believe to purchase new handsets as soon as possible and they want new cases to go along with them.
The Slickwraps CEO has refused to disclose what his sources are or if they can be trusted but he did share two posts, which show what looks like the 3D drawings of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 flagship phablet of the South-Korea based smartphone maker.
Samsung could be placing a biometric sensor at the rear side: Report
The pictures posted by Endicott are not as detailed as the pictures that were leaked by several news sites last month but they do confirm the exact same design, which makes us think that those images were actually true. According to the report by Slashleaks.com, the South-Korea based smartphone maker is expected to reveal the Galaxy Note soon and the upcoming phablet will be similar to the current Galaxy S8 and S8+.
The picture that appeared online showed a handset with the same taller screen ration of 18.5:9. There is no home button at the front, which further suggest that the Korean smartphone maker is placing the biometric sensor at the rear side. The smartphone maker had done the same thing with the current generation Galaxy devices.
