The design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has no radical changes, suggests a first leaked render of the device. The biggest difference: the cameras are no longer below, but next to each other.
A video shows Note 9 design
Although the Galaxy Note 9 will probably only be officially unveiled at the end of August, the first images of the device have already appeared online via OnLeaks. The generally reliable telecom insider shared some photos and videos of a render. They show a computer model of the device. This shows especially the big similarities with the Galaxy Note 8.
The device has a rimless, 6.3-inch screen that runs a little on the side. At the top is a small bezel for the selfie camera and some sensors. A headphone socket and USB port can be found at the bottom. The S Pen, Samsung’s stylus, can also be stopped there.
The front is actually unchanged. However, adjustments can be found on the back. So the device still has a dual camera, with the lenses now not below but next to each other. The fingerprint scanner is slightly larger and is now also under the lenses. That makes it easier to find.
Infinity Display for everyone
2018 seems to be a quiet year for Samsung in the field of design. With the Samsung Galaxy S8, the company introduced the borderless ‘infinity display’, which has since been used for every flagship. The Galaxy S9, which appeared earlier this year, also looks almost identical to its predecessor.
According to the source, the device is a tad larger, with dimensions of 162 by 76 by 8.8 millimetres. In comparison, the Galaxy Note 8 was 75 millimetres wide and 8.6 millimetres thick. That is a difference that you will probably never see with the naked eye. Moreover, according to the source, it offers space for a larger battery, with a capacity of 3850 mAh. There was a modest 3300 mAh battery in the Galaxy Note 8.
