The next big thing from Samsung is the Galaxy Note 9 that is officially launching on August 9. We already know a lot about the phone, thanks to all the leaks and rumors. A month back, OnLeaks revealed the design of the phone via the CAD renders and today, we got our first ‘official’ render of the device that confirms the design shown in the CAD renders by OnLeaks. The render shows only the front of the device and one thing that you’re going to notice is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 looks almost similar to the Note 8 from the front.
The only difference on the front is the slightly slimmer bottom chin. Except for that, the design from the front remains the same. This isn’t something new as we saw the same with this year’s S9 and S9+. So, it looks like design-wise, we are going to see a major change on the rear only where the fingerprint scanner is now placed below the dual camera module.
There shouldn’t be much difference in the screen size, and we expect it to be 6.3-6.4-inch on the Galaxy Note 9 (compared to the 6.3-inch screen on the Note 8). The dimensions of the Note 9 are 161.9 x 76.3 x 8.8 mm which, compared to those of the Note 8 (162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6), show that it is slightly smaller in size and slightly wider than the Note 8. The thickness is 0.2mm more than that of the Note 8, and sources claim that the battery underneath is a massive 4,000mAh unit. In fact, Samsung didn’t go for a vertical dual camera setup on Note 9 because a horizontal camera setup allows a bigger battery to sit underneath.
Most of the specifications are going to remain the same as the Galaxy S9+ like a Snapdragon 845, Quad-HD+ Super AMOLED display, dual rear cameras, Wireless Charging, headphone jack, IP68 Rating, USB Type-C port, Dual cameras, etc. We expect to see better dual cameras and an improved S-Pen.
