This is the clearest look yet at the Samsung Galaxy Note9

Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy Note9 on the 9th of August and this is their next flagship phablet that comes with a stylus. We had a rough idea of what it looks like from several leaked renders and now we have a clear look at the device through a couple of photos.

Roland Quandt of WinFuture had retweeted what appears to be live pictures of the Galaxy Note9. The screen is a bit cracked but you get a clear look of the rear especially its horizontally aligned dual-cameras with a separated fingerprint sensor.

The front of the Note9 is the same as the current Note8 with its dual-curved Infinity Display. Looking at the rear camera module, it looks more cluttered than the Galaxy S9+ but we reckon it will carry over the same variable aperture setup with a secondary camera that offers 2X optical zoom.

Serial leakster @evleaks has recently shared a promo image of the Galaxy Note9 in a tweet to MKBHD. Apart from the striking yellow stylus next to a blue Note9, you’ll notice that the end of the stylus appears to be longer.

As hinted on the official teaser image, the S Pen stylus will be a key highlight in the upcoming model. Word has it that the S Pen will be Bluetooth enabled offering more functionalities.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s what we expect from the Galaxy Note9. Since Malaysia is a key market for Samsung, you can expect local pre-orders to start just days after the global Galaxy Unpacked event.
