This is our first look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 9

We’ve already heard a few rumors and reports about what to expect from this year’s Galaxy Note series device, and a new render likely gives us our first “real” look at the devices.

Samsung tipster Ice Universe has leaked a render of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. Ice Universe stated “Samsung was lazy in 2018 and I concluded that Note9 will not change much. This is just a small adjustment to Note8.” Although this isn’t confirmed by Samsung to be the final design of the upcoming device.

The render shows the Galaxy Note 9, looking little bigger, with a smaller bezel at the bottom. Unfortunately, Ice Universe did not share any images/renders of the rear of the device, which is supposedly where most of the changes will be happening.

For those in denial, Ice Universe has a solid Samsung track record. He previously broke the Galaxy Note 8 design, the first real-world photos of the Galaxy S8 and every single detail of the Galaxy S9.

As for the specs, the Note 9 will feature 6GB of RAM and the device will either be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset or Exynos 9810 SoC.

The Galaxy Note 9 will not have a fingerprint reader integrated into the display, according to the second tweet by Ice Universe. Instead, it suggests that the fingerprint sensor will be placed at the back of the device.

In another tweet, Ice Universe stated “Note9 is 2mm shorter than Note8, and nothing more. You can’t distinguish between them without careful observation.”

Further, The Note 9 will get a 3850mAh battery, a big improvement over the Note 8’s 3300mAh. The Samsung Galaxy Note series launch in the latter half of the year by tradition. The Galaxy Note 9 is therefore not expected to arrive until late summer 2018. Its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8, was revealed on 23 August 2017 and hit shelves on 15 September, with the disastrous Note 7 launching around a similar time.
