Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S9, the latest version of its famous Galaxy S line. The second member of its Galaxy line, the Galaxy Note 9, will be unveiled in August if a recent report is to be believed, with its signature stylus and all of the latest advancements.
If it looks anything like 91mobiles’ new CAD renders, it will be both a stunner and a disappointment.
The most striking feature of the new renders is that the Galaxy Note 9 won’t be changing much from the current Note 8. It still retains the signature Infinity Display, measuring in at 6.3-inches with QHD+ resolution and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Samsung smartphones have come with arguably the best displays around for some time now and we don’t expect that to change with the Note 9. It will be as vibrant and vivid as ever.
Looking at the overall design, the bezels seem to have shrunken somewhat but it’s only minor counting in the millimeters. Thankfully, there is no notch to be found. Most Android phones nowadays are incorporating the polarizing design cue taken from Apple even though most fans hate it. According to the render, Samsung is sticking to a design that is perfectly symmetrical, and we’re all for it.
Where the design does slightly change is in the back. It’s still keeping the same glass back, but instead of the fingerprint scanner being to the side of the dual camera, it is now below, making it much easier to access.
The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to come with a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage with microSD expandability. It’s also returning the headphone jack in case you haven’t broken down and purchased Bluetooth headphones yet.
Staying relatively the same isn’t too exciting, but the design for Galaxy Note 8 was already a winner. There’s not much more Samsung could add that will make it any more appealing. It remains to be seen if the final version of the Note 9 looks anything like the renders do, but given the precedent Samsung set with the Galaxy S9, major changes should not be expected.
