Before launch when S8 design started to leak in the market still Smasung never took any action about people complaint of odd fingerprint location. Beside keeping their monopoly moves they launch Note-8 again with odd fingureprint sensor location. I have not purchased any of these devices and moved on therefore. Also they are copying all moves from apple. Apple increase price so samsung did as well. Samsung is not even close to apple when it comes to overall quality.
The S8 was a masterpiece but this one....
They will repeat the same scene as in 2014 with the S5, the S4 was ergonomically way better.
Results, bad sells.

Relax people! It's just a render = computer generated photo (in case you don't know what's that).
Pretty device (though round corners look very cheap in my opinion), but the Note has a much better design - monolithic design is the best (Sony).
For those wanting to buy it, do your homework first, Sammy is lazy AF when it comes to updating. The S8 still doesn't have Oreo, while MANY other btands have multiple phones. Pffff
For "No 1" this is so embarrassing lmao
Talking only about the colour, it looks quite particular (nice).

BTW, you can thank sites like these for constantly cribbing on the fingerprint position of the Note8 & S8.... Now it looks more ugly, like you & many others have noted. The Note8 & S8 back design looked good. But Samsung listened & changed the design.
These very same sites crib much less, when the iPhone X omits the fingerprint sensor altogether.....
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2018 igger bezels than s8... What a joke. Samsung has no honor.Many people (based on leaks) said the S8 was ugly until it was released. Just wait for the announcement before passing judgement.
zahor, 06 Feb 2018This honestly looks like a step backward in design ugly!I agree. It looks a lot worse than the S8.
What a shame.
ugly like hell and after 3/4 months samsung will stop giving update -- they will become busy with Note9- A,,,j etc etc every year same. In stead get iphone SE - you will get better performance
Is it just me or there is no edge and side bezel look thicker and dual camera looks ugly they should've used note8 design but color is nice
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2018Yeah it looks like a midranger from june 2017.
An absolute joke. Samsung is reportedly "pla... moreThose who have keen eyes will undoubtly notice that the S9 has edge. and the A8 doesn't.
A8+ doesn't have dual camera, S9+ does. the flash is exactly the center of the line of the camera in the A8/+ while in the S9s it's slightly down with the flesh lad being MUCH smaller (but more powerful size-to-power wise) and there's a sensor thing on the duo of the 9th iteration.
people that may not notice it will just ask for the difference. they are not completely idiots.
oh dear gahd. maybe it's the lighting but I am between "It's so beautiful" to "holy f*ck my eyes!!!! they buuuuuuuurn!"
GrazzaD, 05 Feb 2018Is it just me or does this look really underwhelming compared to the S8.It is underwhelming because the design has been seen before in the S8 and has been used many times by different manufacturers. The bottom bezel is slimmer but the sides seems thicker to me, probably to prevent accidental touches etc. Samsung usually undergoes major redesign every 2 years. So if you have the S8, it is better to skip this.
GrazzaD, 05 Feb 2018Is it just me or does this look really underwhelming compared to the S8.actually by the looks of it S8 has slimmer bezels.. If this is real then its really sad. DJ Koh doesnt know what he is doing. But of course He will stand on stage 26 feb. and say something like: "Today I give you Samsung S9 and S9 plus. A revolution in mobile design. we took a holistic approach and designed the phone with nature and human in mind.."
Hayaan Mo Sila, 05 Feb 2018I see no major design change other than the vertical and middle-positioned fingerprint reader,... moreDon't forget stereo speakers and larger battery. Functionality wise, it's a step up for me. Looks wise, I get you but it doesn't bother me coming from an LG V20.
Still awaiting the HTC U12 and ZTE Axon 9 before jumping the gun.
