Report: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Is Going To Look Very Different

Now this is interesting. OnLeaks and 91Mobiles have knocked together a 360-degree render of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 based on information procured from factory sources. Unlike previous Note 9 leaks, the images depict a very different looking phone to the Galaxy Note 8.

The above video is allegedly based on CAD information obtained from a Samsung factory. If the renders are genuine (and not based on an unused prototype), we’re looking at a bold departure from Samsung’s previous flagship.

Most strikingly, the back of the phone sports a horizontally aligned dual-lens arrangement. (This is in stark contrast to the Galaxy S9 which laid its lenses out vertically.) The position of the fingerprint sensor has also been overhauled.

The new phone is reportedly a little thicker and wider than the Note 8 and will probably have a slightly bigger screen. According to the factory source, it measures 161.9mmx76.3mm.

Now, it’s worth noting that prior Note 9 leaks have shown a phone that is much closer in appearance to the Note 8. With that said, OnLeaks are usually pretty on the money. Significantly, a lot of their claims about the Note 8 turned out to be genuine.

According to an earlier Bloomberg report, the phone will come with an improved camera which now boasts an adjustable aperture, a super slo-mo video mode (as found in the Galaxy S9) and “multiframe noise reduction” for crisper low-light images. It’s expected to run on a Snapdragon 845 processor and will debut Bixby 2.0 (AKA Samsung’s answer to Siri.)

You can check out the 360-degree render in the video above. What do you think of the design? Let us know in the comments!

Today, the internet caught its first glimpse of the Pixel 3 – and it’s looking quite different to its predecessor. It appears that an iPhone X-esque notch is coming to the Pixel family.”]
