Huge Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Leak Shows Phone From Every Angle

Huge Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Leak Shows Phone From Every Angle

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks have been coming thick and fast – but this one really takes the biscuit. We now have a hands-on video that shows the device off from every conceivable angle. And it looks pretty damn good.

The above video was posted by Mobile Fun. It purports to show a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 procured from the channel’s contacts in China.

In the likely event that this video gets pulled by YouTube, it consists of around a minute of silent handheld footage. As the camera rolls (in portrait mode, horrifically) a black Note 9 is shown from a variety of angles. So what can we tell from the footage?

As previously reported, the phone looks very similar to the Note 8 but with a larger display and thinner bezels. This should translate to a slightly larger screen (approximately 6.4 inches) in a similar form factor.

The footage also confirms prior leaks which showed a fingerprint sensor directly below the dual-sensor camera. (By contrast, the Note8 features a finger print reader to the left of the lens.)

There are also a few buttons visible on the side which again, look similar to the Note 8. Notably absent from the footage is the S Pen stylus – which is expected to usher in some big improvements.

The display also remains switched off, which is more than a little suspicious. It’s possible that we’re looking at a dummy case intended for retail display and whatnot.

One thing’s for sure, videos of this nature are incredibly hard to fake. We’re either looking at the real McCoy, or an identikit dummy. Either way, we now have a very good idea of what the final version will look like.

For its part, Samsung seems pretty chill about all these Note9 leaks. Even its own Mobile CEO DJ Koh has been getting in on the action. We’ll get out first “official” glimpse of the device next week on August 9.
