Evan Blass may’ve just tweeted a press render of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but that doesn’t mean he’s done for the next 24 hours. This morning, he sent out this photo of the Note 8 that reveals the handset from every angle and even gives us a first look at the new S Pen in both black and gold.

But let’s address the elephant in the room right now: why did Samsung have to put the fingerprint sensor in such a bad location again? Okay, sure, you didn’t have a choice with the S8, but did you really have to go and do the same thing for the Note 8 that’s bound to be even bigger? For what, uniformity? I don’t think anyone would’ve blasted Samsung if they put it underneath the camera lens rather the top right. It makes no sense to me.
Okay, I’m done.
Moving on, we’re seeing a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, dual rear cameras, a Bixby button, and curves everywhere on this guy in this render. This is by far the best look we’ve had so far at the Note 8 that isn’t even supposed to be announced for another three weeks.
If more rain pours, we’ll let you know.
