First leaked Galaxy Note 9 hands-on video confirms conservative design

33

It may feel like we already know everything there is to know about Samsung’s as-yet-unreleased Galaxy Note 9, and in theory, that might even be true, between all the leaked pictures and renders, detailed availability information revealed over the past few days, and a spec sheet that hasn’t been a secret for a long time now.

But we’ve actually been missing a key piece of this extensive puzzle, as the Galaxy Note 9 never showed up on video to offer a complete view, front and back, of its largely repetitive design. Until today, that is, because now a reputable British retailer of mobile accessories claims to have the first exclusive hands-on look at a “real” Note 9.

We obviously can’t verify the “realness” of the device manhandled for a few seconds in front of Mr. Blurrycam here, but as multiple YouTube commenters point out, this is a far too polished and premium-looking product to be a dummy unit or cheap Chinese clone.
 
MobileFun says the short clip was “acquired” through the retailer’s “extensive contacts in China”, showing the Galaxy Note 9 being used for “screen protector testing.” That sounds plausible… enough, and it certainly helps that the handset itself looks legit, with those sharp edges, razor-thin screen bezels, and especially that reorganized back, featuring a centered fingerprint reader below a horizontally-arranged dual camera setup.
 
Unfortunately, it looks like we’ll have to wait a little while longer for the first hands-on video showing a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with its “Infinity Display” switched on. Oh, well, we're only a week or so away from the official announcement anyway.
