Samsung, which launched its flagship smartphones Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ earlier this year, is currently gearing up to launch another flagship smartphone in the coming months — Galaxy Note 9.
Now, concept renders and a 360-degree concept video of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has surfaced online, which gives us a look at what the smartphone’s design could be like.
The images suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 won’t have a major difference in terms of design compared to its S-series siblings. The front side of the phone will be dominated by the Infinity Display, with thin bezels on the top and bottom.
The volume rocker, as well as the power button, has been placed on the left side, similar to its predecessor. Towards the right, there’s the dedicated Bixby button. The company has also decided to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack, which sits beside the USB Type-C port on the bottom.
On the back, one of the major change is the placement of the fingerprint scanner. According to these renders, the fingerprint sensor has now been moved below the camera module, which should make it more convenient to use.
The presence of fingerprint sensor on the back panel means that the phone won’t have an under-display fingerprint sensor, as reported earlier. The phone is said to be thicker at 8.8mm compared to the 8.6mm waistline of its predecessor.
According to the reports, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will come with a 6.3-inch display having QHD+ screen resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone will be powered by the latest and Samsung Exynos 9810 or upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, depending on the region.
Earlier reports have indicated that the phone will pack 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage option. The flagship is also expected to come with an upgraded camera system, though we believe that the phone will continue to offer the same dual-aperture primary camera, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9+.
In the software department, the device is expected to come with a redesigned interface from Samsung, which is dubbed as Crown UX and will be based on Android Oreo operating system out of the box. Further, the phone is also expected to come powered by a larger battery rated at 3,850mAh.
