On August 9, Samsung will officially announce a new Galaxy Note - fittingly called Galaxy Note 9. When that day comes and Samsung finally unveils the new Note, there may be little to no surprises left to unwrap. That's because we've already seen some alleged Note 9 images, while also hearing a lot about the handset's features. On top of that, today we can take a look at what is, reportedly, an "official" Samsung Galaxy Note 9 render.
Revealed by Android Headlines, this new Galaxy Note 9 render only shows the smartphone's front side. As previously suggested, the Note 9 will look a lot like last year's Galaxy Note 8 (pictured above) and should sport a similar dual-curve 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display. When viewed from the front, the two devices are nearly identical, and even their side buttons are placed in the very same positions.
According to a recent report, the Galaxy Note 9 measures 161.9 x 76.3 x 8.8 mm, so it's almost unnoticeably shorter and wider than the Note 8, which measures 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6 mm. Side by side, the two phones could look as below, more or less (the Note 9 from Android Headlines is on the left, while an official Note 8 image is on the right).
The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to bring a redesigned rear camera, which will make it stand out next to the Note 8, but this isn't pictured here. Design aside, the new Samsung Galaxy Note should offer various improved features, including a Snapdragon 845 processor, a larger battery, and a thoroughly upgraded S Pen experience.
