The Galaxy Note 9 appears in new leaked photos

A set of new photos, allegedly depicting the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, have been leaked online. Getting our hands on what are possibly some of the first real-life photos of Samsung's upcoming phablet flagship is not all that surprising at this point, considering how close it is to launch.

The three photos, leaked by user SamsungMobile.News on SlashLeaks, show off the Galaxy Note 9 from both the back and the front. Curiously (and unfortunately), in one of the pictures, the alleged Note 9 is shown with a broken screen ā€“ a crack running from the mid-lower portion of the screen all the way up to the top-left corner.

In the first pair of shots, we can see the back of the Note 9 in one of the pictures, as well as the "About phone" Settings screen in the other. The model number shown in Settings (SM-N960U) seems to be consistent with Samsung's model numbering scheme (the Galaxy Note 8 was SM-N950).

Other than that, the back of the device looks to be completely in line with previous rumors about the Galaxy Note 9 ā€“ horizontal, dual-cam setup with the fingerprint scanner beneath. The two stickers on the back also look legitimate, with the first containing edited-out IMEI number and a visible model number that's consistent with what is shown in Settings.

Speaking of Settings, the photo with the broken Galaxy Note 9 also shows an update that's being downloaded onto the device. If the Chinese writing is to be believed, the update includes the August 1st Android security patch.

funny you said that because the bezels looks a lot thinner than the Note 8, even more than when the S9 compared to the S8. It's a good notchless design bezeless. If they haven't perfected the bezeless design, have some patience. Samsung phones generally looks different each year up til S6 where they started refining designs every year. S6 was refine by S7, S8 refine by s9. Tge Notes have looked similar year after year until the major redesign of the Note8. The Note 8s design has only been used once, on the Note 8, nothings wrong with another year of refinement. Like serial leakster Ice Universe mentioned, "What happens When we get to bezeless display? Will people still whine when all phones looks the same." It"s going to happen so whats the difference here. Some company recycle designs for 2 to 3 years. Even worst Look at Sony and Apple. Sony barely had refinements and IPhone has recycle the same iPhone design since sept 2015, it's about to be 5 years in about 2 months that apple recycle that design on the 8. By the time the S and Note 9 line gets bezeless, some fruitt ass company will have to wait another 4 years probably for that design. Haha And seriously why fix something thats not broken. Just because Phonearena has been posting articles about S9 failing to do as well in Q2 doesn't mean it hasn't beem doing well. Maybe people keep thinking their iPhone 8 is truly IP 67 water resistant and kep breaking them so they have to keep buying and activating themm The S8, S9, Note8 design is fine for now.

Complain complain. If it was a notch you'll complain if it's the same design for only 2yrs complain. Stop acting like a little b!%@#. Let's see you create a phone

Note 8++...Just like the iPhone X is iPhone X++, however, bigger screen that I am looking forward to. Samsung is lucky to sell less than 10-15 million this year.

Still dislike curved glass just adds reflection to the display sides.

For a phone this big, Samsung needs to position the fps a bit lower than this.

The trade off of having such a big battery and fps at the back

Fps doesn't affect size battery, Huawei Mate 10 comes to mind.

Note 4, best Note ever. Then the Note 7. Note 5, worst Note ever.

undeniably the Note 8 is the best looking note. Isn't the general goal to go towards bezeless. It has it, apong with IP68 which helped my S8 survived a river dive for 28hrs. It has MicroSD support so you can expand your storage, install apps and drop files on them, and never worry about losing your files if your phone stops working. Great no slouch cameras, Sick Spen features, Oreo List view for multitasking or recents buttons (privacy), lots of more stuff ither Notes don't have. Acter would be Note FE, Note 4, 3, and 4. Wouldn't bither ranking Note 2 and before

This'll be the phone to beat, but without front facing stereo speakers and in display FPS, the large battery is the only intriguing upgrade (that we know of so far). My Note 8 will still be as good or better than anything else released so unless they offer a heel of a deal I'll wait.

Seems legit. If the tech is worthy I'll give it a consideration.

Iā€™m sitting this one out. Note for another year, and the 6.5 inch X Plus.

Samsung used to be full of risk takers now they have just resigned themselves to reproductions similar to their competitors.

Yep, except for the upgraded battery, processor, storage, ram, s-pen, fingerprint sensor location, and smaller bezels...but other than that, it's basically the same.
