Blurry images, case renders, leaked photos of the OLED panel and renders based on known information have surfaced in the recent reports to reveal the front design of the Samsung’s upcoming flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 9. Today, Android Headlines has shared a clearer render of the front panel of the smartphone. The publication claims that it had received the image through a reliable source which claimed that it is an official render of the Note 9.

As it can be seen in the image, the Galaxy Note 9 looks very similar to the predecessor Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. It continues to feature the same Infinity Display design that offers an aspect ratio of 18.9:5 aspect ratio like the other flagship phones from Samsung. The S-AMOLED screen of the phone is curved towards the right and left edges. The bottom bezel is barren, while the upper bezel is packed with multiple sensors like earpiece, selfie camera, iris scanner and some other sensors. The placement of these sensors is almost same as Galaxy Note 8.

The power key is positioned on the right side of the phone. The volume rocker is on the left and below it is the Bixby button. Like the predecessor model, the pocket for the S Pen stylus could be available on the bottom edge of the phone.


As previous reports have revealed, the repositioned fingerprint scanner could be the only major design change on the Note 9. The Note 8 has the fingerprint scanner placed alongside the horizontal dual rear cameras. There is no fresh image that reveals the rear design of the phone. However, recent leaks have revealed that the fingerprint scanner of the Note 9 could be placed below the dual camera setup.
