For some time now we have been speculating the exact design of Samsung’s next flagship smartphone for this year, the Galaxy Note 9. This smartphone is set to be released in just two months’ time, with the early launch event set on August 9. With the release this close, leaks upon leaks appear online, and they each try to uncover as much as possible about the newest phone and make sure that their data is accurate.
Today we will be talking about the newest ‘official’ renders coming from OnLeaks and 91Mobiles. These two reliable sources have teamed up to provide our fans with some incredibly convincing renders, and a 360-degree video.
More about the renders
At first glance, the average fan would just say that the render for the Note 9 looks almost identical to the Note 8. And they would not be that far off from the truth. In reality, the Samsung looks like they have opted for a design that brings little improvements to the table in favor of them focusing their work on what is under the hood of the device.
This little effort translated to a sleeker design, with edges surrounding the fingerprint sensor, which can be spotted on the rear end of the phone. Another difference that we can quickly detect at first glance is that the camera setup on the back looks smaller and more subtle than it did with the Note 8.
A thing that we are certainly happy about is the fact that Samsung did not follow the latest notch trend with this smartphone, opting for a more familiar design which packs all of the same high specs that we expect from the South Korean company.
The bezels on display look considerably thinner than they did with previous devices, rounding the size of the display to an entire 90 percent screen to body ratio that we are slowly falling in love with. Now, if you thought that Samsung would get rid of the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack, then you were mistaken. The Galaxy Note 9 will also come with this socket.
Now, these renders do paint a pretty picture and one that is as close to reality as possible, but we will not know for sure just how real these renders are until Samsung officially releases the renders for their smartphone. And unless someone manages to get their hand on the official renders and leak them before Samsung announces them, we will finally be able to compare the images.
