Do not expect a drastic change from last year’s model.
GizmoChina has posted images of the Galaxy Note 9 with covers that will be available at launch time, and although the back face is not displayed, the images show the full front face.
As you can see from the screenshots, it looks like the screen frame has been somewhat reduced (especially in the background) but drastic changes are not expected from the Galaxy Note 8 for this Galaxy Note 9. It is possible however to note that the fingerprint sensor is present to the center and was reduced.
For now rumors circulating about Galaxy Note 9 indicate that the device will have a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 845 / Exynos 9810 processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage and 4,000mAh battery. It is also expected a version with 8GB of RAM and internal storage of 256GB or 512GB.
The Galaxy Note 9 will be unveiled at a special Samsung event on August 9th in New York, USA.
