Purported official render of the Galaxy Note 9 is notable, but for the wrong reasons

If you thought Samsung's smartphones were starting to look boring and predictable, you'd be right. A purported offical render of the Galaxy Note 9 has surfaced and it looks just like the Galaxy Note 8.

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.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
