A well-known tipster from China with @UniverseIce Twitter account has shared a leaked render of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. The render reveals that the upcoming Samsung’s Note series phablet will not be arriving with any major change in design as compared to the predecessor Galaxy Note8.
The leaked render shows only the front view of the Galaxy Note 9 with the S Pen stylus standing next to it. The appearance of the Note 9 is almost identical to the Galaxy Note 8 from last year. This suggests that the Galaxy Note 9 may feature a 6.4-inch QHD+ resolution supporting S-AMOLED Infinity Display that delivers an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.
If the Note 9 render is not fake, it seems that Samsung has no plans to bring any design changes on it. According to the leakster, the Note 9 is 2mm shorter than the predecessor model.
In the recent past, the tipster had also claimed that the design of the Note 9 could be similar to the Galaxy S9. If the frontside of the Note 9 looks like the Note 8 then the rear design of its back panel could be similar to the S9. Hence, the Note 9 may feature a dual camera setup with a fingerprint placed below it.
Rumors have it that the Galaxy Note 9 could be the first Samsung phone to feature under-display fingerprint scanner. The leakster has also claimed through another Twitter post that it is almost certain that the Note 9 will not be featuring the advanced biometric recognition feature. It seems that the in-screen fingerprint sensor feature may get introduced on the Galaxy S10 smartphone that will launch in the coming year.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is likely to be powered the Snapdragon 845. Its Exynos SoC edition may feature the rumored Exynos 9820 chipset. In the past, the leakster had also claimed that the phablet would be packed with a 3,850mAh or 4,000mAh battery that will be enabled with 9V / 2A charging. The Note 9 may borrow features like variable camera aperture and stereo speakers from the Galaxy S9+.
It is speculated that the South Korean company may debut the Galaxy Note 9 in early August this year. This indicates that the smartphone may hit the market by mid or late August.
