The design of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is not a big secret as recent reports have revealed its appearance would be very similar to the Galaxy Note 8 from last year. Fresh renders of the Note 9 have surfaced today to reveal its front and rear design.
As it can be seen in the new images, the Galaxy Note 9 features a dual edge curved screen with slim bezels at the top and bottom like the Galaxy Note 8. The major change in the design of the Note 9 is the repositioning of the fingerprint reader. The fingerprint scanner was placed awkwardly besides the horizontal dual camera.
On the Note 9, the fingerprint reader is placed below the horizontal dual camera unit. The case shows the presence of buttons for volume and Bixby on the left and a power key on the right.
Samsung will be bringing design changes on the Galaxy S10 as it will be arriving as the 10th anniversary Galaxy S smartphone from the company. The Note 10 arriving later in 2019 is likely to sport an enhanced design too.
Coming back to the Galaxy Note 9, it will be arriving with some improved internals. Leaks that have surfaced in the past few months have revealed specs like 6.4-inch S-AMOLED Infinity Display, Snapdragon 845 / Exynos 9810 SoC, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of RAM, dual camera with variable aperture and 4,000mAh battery. There could be an 8 GB RAM variant with 256 GB or 512 GB of internal storage.
The S Pen stylus of the Note 9 is expected to carry support for Bluetooth connectivity that will make it possible to use it to do non-stylus related tasks like controlling music playback and long-range selfie timer.
It is speculated that since the upcoming Note 9 has a similar design with advanced specs, Samsung may kill the sales of Galaxy Note 8. In fact, retailers are reportedly clearing up the current stock of the Note 8. The Galaxy Note 9 is slated to get unveiled on Aug. 9. It is speculated the Gear S4 smartwatch may also get unveiled at the same event.
