Watch: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 design

The Galaxy Note 8 was the first Samsung device to boast a dual-camera setup – 12-megapixel wide-angle lens + 12-megapixel telephoto lens. For selfies, there’s an 8-megapixel snapper up front.

Looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Before you head online to buy the Galaxy Note 8, there’s one point to remember. Samsung is gearing up to launch the Galaxy Note 9 in a matter of months. This year’s Samsung Galaxy S9 duo looked exactly like last year’s Galaxy S8 duo. Similarly, the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 too is expected to look the same as the Galaxy Note 8. The design is all but confirmed courtesy of a render leaked by Ice Universe.

Based on what we have come across so far, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to feature a 6.40-inch Super AMOLED display with the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio. It is likely to be powered by the same chipsets that are found on the Galaxy S9 duo. Keeping things ticking is likely to be a 3,850-4,000mAh battery. There are quite a few contradictory reports around the flagship phablet sporting an in-display fingerprint sensor. One thing is clear though, Samsung won’t risk putting in a feature on a flagship product before perfecting it.
