Samsung Galaxy Note 9 won’t be that different from the Note 8

If you were disappointed by the Samsung Galaxy S9 which didn’t look that different from the S8, and were expecting some sort of redemption from Samsung with the Note 9, sorry. An exclusive video by @OnLeaks shows renders of what is now expected to be the final Note 9 which could be launching as soon as August this year.

The renders on have us already knowing everything we should be expecting from Samsung this year:

  • USB C, Speaker, headphone jack and S-pen at the bottom
  • Volume and power buttons on the left,
  • Bixby button on the right
  • bigger battery

The Note 9 is expected to pack 6GB or RAM, and upto 256GB of internal storage while running on their latest Exynos 9810 processor, with variants having the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. It is only after the launch where we’ll understand what new changes have been made under the hood to make it a new device worth upgrading to. For now, the only noticeable change is with the new square fingerprint scanner right under the cameras, which will be trouble for many people.
