Alleged Galaxy Note 9 render brings no surprises

We’re less than a month away from the official launch of Samsung’s new flagship smartphone. An alleged official render of the Galaxy Note 9 has been leaked online today and it doesn’t bring any surprises as far as the design is concerned. That’s to be expected from the Galaxy Note 9 which wasn’t said to get any major design changes in the first place.

The reports about this handset so far have also suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 will be quite similar to the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung fans shouldn’t keep their fingers crossed for a significantly higher screen-to-body ratio as well. Samsung isn’t adopting the notch anytime soon so that’s out of the question too for this device.

Galaxy Note 9 render

It’s claimed to be an official render of the Galaxy Note 9. It’s certainly not an official press render as those tend to show the wallpaper and the lockscreen. This may have come from an accessory manufacturer. There’s always the possibility that it’s inaccurate.

The reason why this alleged Galaxy Note 9 render is passable is because so little is expected to be changed on the new flagship as far as the design is concerned. The front panel leaks that we saw a few weeks ago also suggested the same. Even the early Galaxy Note 9 hands-on claimed that are no major changes to the design of the handset. There have been reports, though, that the bottom bezel will be slightly slimmer than it is on the Galaxy Note 8.

The Galaxy Note 9 may come with a 6.4-inch Infinity Display, just a tad larger than the Note 8’s 6.3-inch display. It will be powered by the Exynos 9810 and the Snapdragon 845 in select markets with 6GB of RAM. It’s possible that Samsung may launch a variant with 8GB of RAM. A 4,000mAh battery may be onboard as well.

Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy Note 9 at an event in New York City on August 9. That’s also where it will confirm the pricing and availability information for this handset.
