Purported official render of the Galaxy Note 9 is notable, but for the wrong reasons
There can be no doubt that Samsung makes well-designed handsets these days. However, it seems as though they have started to take a leaf out of Apple's book by preserving the fundamental design language of one device to the next. If that is something that bothers you, you will be disappointed to learn that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 looks exactly the same as the Galaxy Note 8 that it replaces -- at least from the front, according to a leaked render courtesy of Android Headlines.
The good news is though that it should get a speed bump to a Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 with 6GB of RAM, depending on market. It is also expected to feature a revised and more capable S Pen that will incorporate Bluetooth for more accurate input. Although the design looks identical, it is expected to pick up a slightly larger Infinity Display measuring 6.4-inches rather than the 6.3-inch display in Galaxy Note 8. The battery will correspondingly be a little larger at 4,000mAh, to help keep the display powered for a full day.
Expect the Galaxy Note 9 to come in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Orchid Gray, Teddy Brown, and Titanium Gray while any remaining details will undoubtedly be fully revealed on August 9 at the next Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event.
