Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S9 duo are already out an about in the open and it is time we shift our attention to the other flagship, the Galaxy Note 9. The latest report on the handset from Bloomberg came out in late May stating that the handset would be launched on August 9 at an Unpacked event in New York surprisingly. Usually, Samsung launches the flagship sometime in September. That report isn’t old and now the first CAD renders of the Galaxy Note 9 have surfaced online today.
If you take a look at the CAD clip, you’ll hardly be impressed with the Note 9 design in the sense that there’s nothing new here. Pretty much like the Galaxy S9, the Note 9 also seems to be an iterative upgrade. There are some changes at least. For example, the fingerprint reader has been moved to a more ergonomic position. This pours cold water over hopes of an on-screen fingerprint reader that has been in the news.
Samsung will also be upgrading the camera experience although we don’t think that will be in the hardware as the dual aperture will surely make its way to the Note series. The upgrade will probably be on the software side. Besides, we can expect the latest and greatest hardware the smartphone industry has to offer onboard the device.
