With the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 rumored to launch in August, we’re seeing plenty of leaks for the device revealing almost everything about it design and features. Recently we came across some renders of the phone that suggested the Note 9’s design to be very similar to its predecessor, the Note 8. Now a leaked image of the front panel further confirm those rumors.

The image of the front panel was posted on Twitter by Ice Universe. It suggests that the phone will be featuring a dual-curved display like its predecessor, but will have slimmer top and bottom bezels. Besides that, the cutouts for the sensors, earpiece and front-facing camera are similarly placed to the ones found on the Galaxy Note 8.

Based on previous rumors, the device is said to feature a slightly bigger 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The phone is also said to be sporting 6GB of RAM and will be powered by the Exynos 9810 Octa or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, depending on the region. Recent leaks have also claimed the device to carry 512GB of storage and a massive 4,000mAh battery.

The Note 9 will also feature a dual-rear camera setup, details of which haven’t surfaced yet. However, a recent report did mention it to be better than the one on the Galaxy S9+. A leaked image of its case also revealed the smartphone to carry a fifth physical button, which experts claim to be a shutter button. The phone is also coming with an upgraded voice assistant in the form of Bixby 2.0.
