While the Galaxy Note 8 won't launch until August 23rd, noted leaker Evan Blass aka EVLeaks has just posted a full render of the device in its Midnight Black color. Closely matching renders seen before, it takes the Infinity Design seen in Samsung's well-received Galaxy S8 and S8+ and stretches it across a larger frame. The event invite promised we'd "Do Bigger Things," but other than the usual Note features like a stylus it's hard to say exactly what will be special about this phone -- other than a slightly smaller battery to avoid last year's explosive issues.

Update: Saying, "When it rains, etc.," Mr. Blass has just leaked another image, this one at a high resolution (above) showing the Galaxy Note 8 in two colors with its stylus. This is our clearest look yet at the smartphone and its dual-cameras, again, set to arrive on August 23rd. It also shows a rear fingerprint sensor in roughly the same spot as on the Galaxy S8 -- a place that makes it tough to access and easy to smudge your camera's lens.
