[ How to ?? ] Root the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Exynos Variant

We’re starting to see more and more people getting their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8, so for those of you looking for some help in rooting your device, XDA Recognized Developer dr.ketan has made a simple step-by-step guide for you. This guide will walk you through how to gain root access to the device using SuperSU. The developer also promises to provide an EFS backup tool so you can save the important data in this partition.
Once your device is rooted, you open up the device to some interesting modifications such as flashing the popular audio mod called Viper4Android. Of course, there are already a ton of things you can do without root on Samsung devices such as blocking ads and disabling bloatware, but having root access is an added benefit nonetheless.

[Tech Leaks] Galaxy Note 8:Leaked images of the entire device including S-Pen in Gold & Black


Few hours ago, famed leaker, Evan Blass, tweeted out a press render of the Galaxy Note 8 in Midnight Black. Unfortunately, at the time Blass was only able to share an image of the front of the handset. Now, Blass is back and has released an image of the Note 8 in both black and gold from almost every angle. Plus, he was able to include each variant’s distinctly colored S-Pen…

The tweet, embedded below, shows press renders of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone in Midnight Black and gold.

The Midnight Black model is basically a blacked-out device with no different colored accents. The gold model is slightly different. This time, the backing and metal edges are all gold. Two areas that aren’t gold are the camera window and front bezels, which keep the black coloring. Also different is the S-Pen, which appears to be color matched to each Galaxy Note 8 color variant.

There will most likely be even more color options shown off when Samsung announces the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23, including Orchard Gray and a brand new Deep Blue.
