Samsung Galaxy Note 9 press photo shows yellow isn't a bad color choice
The Galaxy Note 9 looks a lot like the last year Note 8, but Samsung has a few surprises under its sleeve. If you haven't yet seen the promo poster that leaked last week, here is a much better look at the front and back of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 press photo shows yellow isn't a bad color choice
Apart from the almost identical shape, the Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 have one other thing in common: they both come with an S Pen. However, the Note 9's advanced stylus has an unusual color: yellow.

As you can see from the image shared by Evan Blass, the bottom of the S Pen has the same color as the back of the phone to make blend within the overall design. Also, if you still had doubts, the Galaxy Note 9 has a fingerprint sensor on the back, so it won't be the first Samsung smartphone to include an in-display fingerprint scanner.

There's also a dual camera on the back, coupled with a LED flash and a few sensors. All these form a pretty large island on the upper side of the phone, which doesn't look very stylish at all.

Although the resemblance between the Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 is pretty obvious, at least we're getting more color options, and not just for the phone itself, but the S Pen too.

Maize n' blue like my Wolverines. Love it. Unless any other combinations wow me, this is the one I'll be getting.

What's the difference between this year's design and last year's? Serious question.

Nasty ugly, it should've been in pure Cooper or stainless steel or titanium. Make it pure premium with 24K gold plate.

That camera array is killing me. Make it symmetrical or black it out

You must have an amazing life for that to be such a big issue.

I agree though. This color combo really has me wanting to shift from my traditional black move but that camera should've been blacked out

We can agree to disagree. I got the black Note 8 though because I didn't like the way the black out looked with the other colors. I prefer the blend.

Yeah I love note 8 looks, but on note 9 the back looks like unfinished product.

Complimentary colours (opposite colours) always look amazing together!!!.

16. joeyfingaz

complimentary would be blue/orange and purple/yellow

Nah, he's right.. Yellow is #FFFF00 while blue is #0000FF (that's RGB value if you really clueless about it)

colors directly opposite each other in the color spectrum, such as red and green or blue and orange, that when combined in the right proportions, produce white light. the pantone complimentary colors: Red and green is one of three pairs of complementary (or opposite) colors on the traditional color wheel; others include orange/blue and violet/yellow. When combined, these colors make a striking, high-contrast impression that can be a little jarring if you don't use them carefully.

Offset color on s-pen makes this Note stand way out in a good way...

Rear FPS? Yeah, no thanks buddy. I want phones with components from 2018, not 2013.
