Samsung CEO spotted using a supposed Galaxy Note 9 in Public

Samsung’s CEO DK Koh has been spotted recently using an S pen compatible Galaxy phone in the public. Given that the Galaxy Note 9 is the only phone with a near release date, eagled-eye phone fans have been able to confirm the device in question is Sammy’s next flagship phablet which has been in the rumor mill for a couple of months now.

Though there is no clear  evidence to prove the device is the upcoming Galaxy Note 9, albeit its compatibility with the S pen,  Sammobile notes that zooming into the photo reveals  the device’s fingerprint sensor isn’t exactly where it is on the Galaxy Note 8, but instead reveals a horizontal dual-camera setup with a fingerprint sensor below it, and that conforms with what has been rumored for the Galaxy Note 9.

Aside proofs and reports that claims the Galaxy Note 9 S Pen would be updated with functions that go beyond simply writing, navigation and drawing, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to get overhauled internally, but not much will change when compared to the Galaxy Note 8 in terms of the design. The device is been rumored to feature a dual-lens camera and a fingerprint scanner on the back in a horizontal alignment – so an in-display fingerprint scanner is ruled out, but unlike the Galaxy Note 8, the rear fingerprint sensor will now assume a position similar to that of the Galaxy S9 plus with a fingerprint sensor under and not beside the camera setup.

The upcoming Note 9 is expected to also look much like the Note 8 on the display front, however, the Note 9 bottom bezel is expected to be a tad smaller than that on the Note 8. Although we are yet to get official specs and price tags,  previous leaks and rumors already give a hint on what to expect on these topics— check them out here.

The Galaxy Note 9 will be officially unveiled at the Galaxy unpacked event on August 9 in the New York City, and will reportedly go on sale in the latter part of August.
