Samsung’s next flagship device, the Galaxy Note 9, is rumoured to launch on August 9. The smartphone has now leaked in an early 360 degree render video, giving us an idea of its design. Noted tipster @Onleaks has posted the CAD renders, in collaboration with 91Mobiles, and if they are to be believed, then the device might not sport any radical design changes as compared to its predecessor. The renders show a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with a 6.3-inch infinity display and reduced top and bottom bezels.

The Galaxy Note 9 could also retain the Note 8's button placements. The renders display the volume rockers and the power button on the left edge of the device, while the Bixby button is on the right edge. We just hope that the company allows users to remap the Bixby button this time around.

Moving on, there is a USB Type-C port on the bottom with a mic and a speaker grille, and it seems like the company won’t remove the 3.5mm audio jack. Most notable changes are seen on the handset’s rear panel, where the fingerprint sensor is placed centrally, same as the Galaxy S9. The presence of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor hints that there might not be an in-display fingerprint sensor on the device as a previous report suggested. 

The dimensions of the Galaxy Note 9 will reportedly be 161.9 x 76.3 mm. However, the handset could be slightly thicker than its predecessor at 8.8mm, compared to 8.6mm on the Note 8. The screen size is expected to be the same at 6.3-inches with a taller 18.5:9 aspect ratio and QHD+ resolution. The device will most likely be powered by the company’s flagship Exynos 9810 SoC in some regions and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in others. Depending on the region where it’s launched, the smartphone is said to come with up to 6GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The smartphone is also rumoured to feature an upgraded camera system and we think that the S9's variable aperture feature might also show up on the Note 9. It is tipped to come with a larger 3880 mAh battery this time to solve the issue its predecessor faced.
