Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks show upgraded Note 8

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the successor of the Galaxy Note 8, is coming. Well, according to several reports, the Galaxy Note 9 will look nearly the same as the Galaxy Note 8, albeit with a fingerprint scanner now placed below the dual-camera setup.

These new renders come from a collaboration between OnLeaks and 91Mobile who has a proven track record of correctly leaking phone renders.

We can see the front of the Note 9 is barely changed when compared to that of the Note 8, albeit its top and bottom bezels appear to be slightly thinner.

The Galaxy Note 9 will feature the same Infinity Display, as well as the same volume buttons and power button on the left side, with the Bixby button returning on the right.

Samsung will also continue to include a 3.5mm headphone jack, which will be located at the base of the phone alongside the USB-C port for charging.

According to CAD renders, the only significant design change might be on the back panel of the Note 9, where Samsung appears to have moved the fingerprint scanner below the camera setup.

This should make it easier to reach, though it also basically guarantees that we won’t see an on-display fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy Note 9.

Here is the Galaxy Note 9’s believed dimensions:

“We’ve also got the dimensions of the Galaxy Note 9, which measures 161.9 x 76.3mm. However, the handset might be thicker than the Note 8 with a waistline of 8.8mm (vs 8.6mm on the predecessor). The screen size of the flagship will also remain roughly the same, at around 6.3-inches.”

As for specs, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to feature a 6.38-inch display with QHD+ resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, up to 256/512GB of internal storage, and a 3,850 mAh battery.

Well, these are still renders/leaks, the design might be tweaked slightly, but the overall look of the Galaxy Note 9 will likely remain the same. We might also see a new interface dubbed ‘Crown UX,’ but we still don’t know much about this potential addition.

Samsung has yet to officially confirm the Galaxy Note 9, but reports suggest that Samsung could debut the phone as early as July or August. What do you think about? Let us know in the comment below.
