Behold—above is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 revealed in all its glory.

The pictures come courtesy of VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, who has proven reliable when it comes to these early press render leaks.
After the massive redesign of the Galaxy S8, it’s no surprise that the Note 8 follows in its footsteps. You’re still getting a slim bezel design with rounded display corners and on-screen buttons.

The top sensor arrangement seems to be identical to the Galaxy S8, with an iris scanner setup consisting of one extra camera and one infrared LED, along with the usual front-facing photo camera and sensor setup.

The sides are still rounded on the front and back, and there still looks to be an extra physical “Bixby button” which exists for the sole purpose of launching Samsung’s new voice assistant.
The major difference over the S8 is that the whole device is squarer.

The taller corners will no doubt be used to store the S-Pen, the Galaxy Note’s signature feature. On the back we also see Samsung’s first dual-camera arrangement, which, rumor has it, is for a 3x optical zoom setup.
