Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is very close to being released, with the launch event set for August 9. This means that we only have two months left of waiting before we can finally get our hands on this new flagship device. In light of this amount of tie left before the official event, renders for the smartphone have finally surfaced online. Now, before we get into this, we would like to tell you that this is not by any meant the official renders coming from Samsung, but they the next best thing that we could get our hands on and they look accurate.
These renders were posted online by OnLeaks, one of the most reliable sources of leaks surrounding the upcoming smartphones, which means that these pictures are probably the real deal. These factory CAD leak-made-models show that the Note 9 will have a similar design to that of its predecessor, the Note 8. However, there are a small number of changes that have been made.
One of the most significant changes is that the fingerprint reader is not physically separate from the rest of the rear end with a couple of barriers put in place. They look more like small barriers set in place for aesthetic value but they do bring the whole design together, and you can certainly feel them. This means that now you will have a harder time accidentally smudging your cameras since these barriers are here not only to guide you but also to prevent that.
The next significant difference between the design of the Note 8 and that of the Note 9 is the way the sensors are arranged. We now have one or two small LED flashbulbs and an extra sensor which could be a 3D one or just an infrared sensor. We can’t tell from the pictures, so that is still up for debate.
The front end of the Note 9 will have little to no changes when compared to the Note 8. The technology behind the display is going to be the same so do not expect to see an in-screen fingerprint reader or some other crazy feature. We can say that we are happy that not many changes have been made to the screen since Samsung could have quickly jumped on the top-notch trend wagon that many other companies did.
Specs wise, expect to see the Note 9 with the Exynos 9810 or the Snapdragon 845 processor.
