The Galaxy Note 8 launch on the horizon is one of the more exciting upcoming device launches, so it’s no surprise to see more leaks for the device, with a purported protective glass screen protector popping up online.

The screen protector shows off the curvature of the screen, as well as a very minimal, almost bezel-less design for the upcoming phone. The screen protector will cover the rumoured 6.3” 18.5:9 aspect ratio display which will also incorporate the curved edge-to-edge ‘Infinity Display’ of the Galaxy S8 series.

We’ve previously seen pictures of the Note 8 thanks to renders from case maker Olixar which confirms this almost bezel-less design.

The Note 8 is rumoured to launch in late August in New York City, before going on-sale in September with a rumoured $1500AUD price tag. That $1500 will net you a lot of hardware though, with the phone apparently powered by either an Exynos 8895 or Snapdragon 835 CPU dependent on market, with 6GB of RAM and a minimum of 64GB of onboard storage. The battery will be reduced after last years issues with the Note 7, with Samsung apparently scaling down to a 3,300mAh battery.

The Note 8 will launch in three colours – Gold, Black and Blue – though availability of colours will be dependent on market.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
