Looks like the Galaxy Note 9 won't include a shutter button after all
Previously, leaked Galaxy Note 9 case renders appeared to depict an extra physical button on the frame of the device, with information obtained yesterday claiming that it would be both a shutter button and a screenshot key. Today, however, tipster Ice Universe has denied these claims by providing different case renders that reveal the cut-out’s true use.

In what will be a huge disappointment to fans and those hoping for an enhanced photography experience, the cut-out in question is actually just two holes added by the manufacturer of this specific case in order to be used with a small lanyard. This means no special extra buttons will be included, users will simply have to make do with the volume rocker, power key, and the controversial Bixby button that will have access to the updated version of the assistant upon launch in August.

Aside from the smartphone’s lack of an extra button, not everything surrounding the Galaxy Note 9 is negative. In fact, it was recently revealed that Samsung had plans to release the smartphone in a new brown color, alongside slightly updated variants of its usual four offerings. Additionally, recent information confirmed the South Korean giant’s plans to include a very respectable 4,000mAh battery inside its next flagship, a huge boost over last year’s 3,300mAh power pack that the Galaxy Note 8 features.

Currently, those interested in the Galaxy Note 9 can expect the smartphone to be announced later this summer on August 9 alongside the Gear S4 smartwatch and possibly a new Bixby speaker. Additionally, shipments of the flagship smartphone should commence towards the end of that same month.

I saw this from a mile away. The note 9 will bring NOTHING new to the table. Just save your money for next years S10 guys. Inscreen Finger Print and 7nm Snapdragon!

He is right,nothing new is there in note 9 except of few new custom note features,same goes for all android flagship phones except of htc u12+,sony z2 premium,pixel 3,vivo nex s,a and surface phone.Better go buy a surface phone,vivo nex s,htc u12+,z2 premium or pixel 3 bcoz all rest of flagship devices are flop this years even do the 2018 iphones model.Next year will be many great devices with 7nm euv chip and inscreen fingerprint,speaker,camera tech.Oh and a nokia pentalens device is still in rumour mill until it get leak more to get confirm.

if you have note8, then you definitely do not have to upgrade to note9. But if you come from older devices like me (S8 or older) then note9 is the reasonable upgrade.

Or, OR, people who have the Note 8 can get whatever they want if the Note 9's what they want.

Exactly As of right now I am going to hold on to my note 8 but, we will see if I can stick to that when the note 9 comes out.

I'm thinking to figure out why numbskulls think a better camera is not an upgrade for those who want it. Save YOUR money & let who ever wants to get it get it.

This incremental update will still probably be the best phone out, but I’m skipping it. 6.5 inch iPhone for me, or I just keep my X.
