It may feel like we already know everything there is to know about Samsung’s as-yet-unreleased Galaxy Note 9, and in theory, that might even be true, between all the leaked pictures and renders, detailed availability information revealed over the past few days and a spec sheet that hasn’t been a secret for a long time now.
But we’ve actually been missing a key piece of this extensive puzzle, as the Galaxy Note 9 never showed up on video to offer a complete view, front and back, of its largely repetitive design. Until today, that is, because now a reputable British retailer of mobile accessories claims to have the first exclusive hands-on look at a “real” Note 9.
The Galaxy Note 9 has now leaked in a hands-on video which gives us a closer look at the design of this device.
The leaked Galaxy Note 9 hands-on video has been posted online by retailer MobileFun. The short video doesn’t show the handset switched on but presents a closer look at the design of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone.
The Galaxy Note 9 won’t really be that different from its predecessor as far as the design is concerned. It will be almost identical from the front. One big design change will be at the back where the fingerprint sensor has now been positioned below the dual camera housing instead of alongside it.
Samsung has opted to retain the horizontal housing for the dual rear camera on the Galaxy Note 9. It’s how it was on the Galaxy Note 8 as well. Samsung did opt for a vertical housing for the dual camera on the Galaxy S9 which was released earlier this year.
The company is going to unveil the Galaxy Note 9 at a special event in New York City on August 9th.
