    Attachment 256235Looks like the Note 8 will be a little wider than the s8+.
    I've seen this pic of the Note 8 & I feel like someone just put an S-pen next to a S8+ & said "hey, here's a leaked pic of the Note 8". I'm not saying that I'm right, but everytime I see this pic I can't help but think that.

    And that's exactly what they did lol. It's funny because the people who want to wait for the note8 don't like the s8+ because of the curves or edges or overall size but then turn around and love that pic. Little do they know that's the same exact design.
    Well I'm keeping my S7 edge to see the note 8 after having the note 7. If that pic was indeed the note 8 I'd be wrapped - I like the curves/edges/size of the 8+ but after owning my first Note (7) I'm totally hooked on that s pen functionality

    I'm not sure this is making any sense. Note 8 specs are always either the same as S series or better with the design a bit more refined + all the extra features you get with note that is not on any other phone.

    People who are saying they are waiting for Note 8 are hard hardcore Note fans that have to have the S Pen. I am one of those people. Yes, S8 Plus is an amazing phone, but for Note nuts, there is nothing out there that can replace the Note series. Ask x Note 7 users, it's not about waiting for the "next big thing", it's about wanting a Note.
    Usually, it is. But for this case, some people might hate the FPS so much that they are waiting for Note 8 to resolve this issue. (actually that's me )

    Also, Note 8 is a direct competitor to the supposedly revolutionary iPhone X, so who knows there might be some more tricks up Samsung's sleeve, like dual camera etc.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if the dimensions stayed exactly the same as the S8+ and Samsung just figured out how to place the fingerprint sensor under the screen in time for the Note 8. (and cram a stylus in there)

    Other than that, they'd make it 128GB on-board storage, 6GB RAM, and bundle in a DeX dock just to give it more "business appeal".

    The Note 8 likely won't be that different specs-wise from the S8+. Though given that there is a 6GB RAM variant, there may be a slight chance that the next Note could see a slight spec bump, although not a very significant one compared to the 3 and 4.

    Really, where we'll see the changes lie in software features and some design aesthetics. The Note might actually have an embedded FPS in the display, something that would've been in the S8 but wasn't ready in time.

    The Note 7 was not a flop because it sold over 2.5 million devices globally within the first few weeks. That alone puts them in position to be a high ranking device sales wise. But, it was the worst device of 2016 at the same time because of the battery issue, poor quality control, etc. So I guess you could call it a flop, since instead of making $500 million or more in profit, they lost around $20 billion.
    To clarify, it's not that it's a bad phone. The polar opposite, actually. Had it not caught fire, it would likely be one of the very best phones of the year. But instead of being that, it ended up being a PR mess and a liability for Samsung. So while many would call a phone like the LG G5 a flop in the traditional sense, I'd say the Note 7 was a definite flop not because it's bad, but because it suffered from quite a number of negative PR to the point where the plug was pulled.

    Lessons were learned, though, so let's hope the Note 8 is great.

    Seems the same to me. In one situation, a person posts assuming that people care and in the other situation a person expresses that they care. So it seems the assumption is correct: some people care about what other people do.

    I have a pre-order for the S8+ and will preorder the Note 8. I normally just get Notes and upgrade once a year, unfortunately I had to go from the Note 7 to the S7 Edge (wish I hadn't traded in my Note 5). I ordered the S8+ because I really don't like the S7 Edge and want out of it as soon as possible, this is simply a personal preference. Once I get the Note 8 then I will get back on the Note cycle and only upgrade once a year.

    Note 8 should be great, but if indifferent to the display ratio or pen, seems no point in waiting and the 8+ is a good choice. There will always usually be a better device months away.

    Almost looks like they took an S8+, and put a left over stylus from the Note 7 next to it...
    IMO that's all it is. perhaps with a little photoshop to make it look wider. People know what they're doing...trying to spark conversation and its working.

    No way will the note 8 be tall and skinny like the s8+.... also the FPS will 100% not be next to the camera lens....

    It's going to have to be wider to accommodate the S-Pen silo, I think they learned their lesson in cramming things in there with the Note 7.

    Hence the rumored bigger screen, it will be wider and taller I bet

    You're in the same boat as me. I would only purchase phones from the note line but then the note7 debacle happened so I bit on the s8+, until the note8 comes out.

    Why would you think the note8 won't be tall and skinny? You do know that the note7 started this tall display trend for Samsung. It wasn't enough to change the aspect ratio but it definitely was taller and narrower then the s7 series.

    The note8 will definitely be the same exact design and aspect ratio as the s8 series.

    Well, the Note 7 mainly started the whole trend of being narrower.

    I believe that it is not possible for the Note 8 specs to be a flop in anyway, unless it is foldable.

    Exactly. The "narrow" phones are hear to stay due to the onscreen navigation buttons. People want the best of both worlds - no home button and no weird display ratio. I'm hoping there's a way to just extend out the display of the Note8 by only increasing the width.

    Like the multitude of devices with large 16:9 devices with onscreen buttons? Because there are tons of them
