Whether it is press renders or leaked renders or whatever kind of a leak there is, the purpose of it is one – to generate the hype for the upcoming device. And this works more if the device in question is a flagship-level one.
In this case, we are talking about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9, scheduled to be unveiled on August 9 at an event in NYC.
This Galaxy Note 9 press render reveals pretty much everything about the front side of the handset. And, surprise, it looks more or less indistinguishable from the current Galaxy Note 8.
Starting from the outer body, the curves of the corners are quite the same along with the curved corners of the display itself. Of course, the left and the right edges are curved as well, which has now become Samsung’s signature style.
The top and the bottom bezels appear to carry the same width, however, given that the display size is likely to be a little larger at 6.4 inches, these bezels could appear smaller considering the overall screen to body ratio.
The similarity continues with the physical buttons on the sides – on the right, there’s the Power button while the left side contains the Bixby and the Volume control buttons.
Even though the front may not excite the potential Note 9 buyers too much, the differences will likely occur at the back and definitely on the inside. First, the backside will have the horizontal dual camera setup (usual arrangement), but, the placement of the fingerprint reader will be below the camera module and not at its side.
Lastly, the handset will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset for the American market while for the other global markets, it will get Samsung’s Exynos 9810 processor. Expect improvements in the Stylus functionality as well as the addition of a larger 4,000 mAh battery.
