Some pretty convincing photos of Samsung's big upcoming smartphone have leaked

  • Two new photos posted to Slashleaks supposedly show the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 coming later this year.
  • If the photos are accurate, the Galaxy Note 9 is going to look pretty similar to the Galaxy Note 8.
  • This isn’t a bad thing – the Galaxy Note 8 is a very nice-looking smartphone.

Looks like Samsung’s new and upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will look like a modern Galaxy Note device.

That’s to say there isn’t much to report on the Galaxy Note 9’s design if two photos that were leaked on Slashleaks and supposedly show the Galaxy Note 9 are accurate.

If they are accurate, the Galaxy Note 9 is set up to look pretty similar to the Galaxy Note 8, which isn’t a bad thing by any means. The Galaxy Note 8 is a very nice smartphone.

The photos also suggest that Samsung gave the Galaxy Note 9 the same fingerprint sensor redesign underneath the camera as the Galaxy S9. If it’s anything like the Galaxy S9’s fingerprint sensor, it will be much easier to reach and feel for compared to the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 8.

It’s also worth pointing out the “Do not leak” sticker on the back of the phone for comic effect.

You can also check out the front of the supposedly leaked Galaxy Note 9 on Slashleaks. Of course, take any and all alleged leaks with a grain of salt, but the Galaxy Note 9 will be revealed soon, for what it’s worth.

Samsung sent out press invitations for an August 9 “Unpacked” event in New York, where’s it’s expected to announce the Galaxy Note 9. The invitation hints to vibrantly coloured S Pens that come with the new Galaxy Note devices, and some rumours claim the Galaxy Note 9 itself will come in a variety of similarly vibrant colours.
