It has become a trend now for cases and covers to leak well before a popular smartphone model is revealed officially and since the Galaxy Note 8 is inarguably one of the most anticipated Android phones till date, this trend is proving true in this case as well (no puns intended!). The case in question is made by Olixar and the news was brought to attention by a post on SamMobile. It's now up for preorder at Mobile Fun as you read this.
What it means for us enthusiasts is that we get to have a first look at how the Galaxy Note 8 will look like when released in about two months' time. As case makers usually receive information regarding the design of a smartphone well in advance since they have to start manufacturing the cases well before the smartphones are launched, we are hoping that this is a pretty reliable look at how the Galaxy Note 8 may look like. Then again, nothing is for certain unless more reliable sources reveal the actual handset. If the design does turn out to be true, then the good news is that while the fingerprint scanner will still be placed at an awkward position, the flash and the heart rate sensor has been placed in-between the dual camera module and the fingerprint sensor to eliminate any chances of smudging the lens.
