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'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.
