Yesterday the Samsung CEO was spotted using a Galaxy Note 9. It was neat seeing the device in the wild ahead of its official launch, but we didn’t really get a good look at the Note 9 itself. Two new leaks have surfaced today to correct that.
A render of the Galaxy Note 9 ( has made its way online courtesy of well-known leaker Evan Blass. It gives us a clear look at Samsung’s upcoming flagship, complete with a dual rear camera setup and a fingerprint reader below it, which is different than on the Note 8. The image also shows off a bright yellow S Pen.

But wait, there’s more Note 9. Two photos that allegedly show the Note 9 in real life have been posted to Twitter by user MMDDJ_. This device looks similar to the one in today’s other Note 9 leak, complete with dual rear cameras and a fingerprint reader below them.
Samsung is hosting an event on August 9th, and it’s widely expected that the Galaxy Note 9 will be made official there. While the Note 9 may look fairly similar to the Note 8, the new placement of the fingerprint reader below the dual rear cameras rather than to their side should make the Note 9 easier to use. Plus, we think it’d be pretty awesome if Samsung released a blue Galaxy Note 9 with a bright yellow S Pen, but we may be in the minority there.
Are you looking forward to the Galaxy Note 9?
