As the official launch date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 approaches, the number of leaks and reports with additional details is gradually increasing on the internet. According to one of the latest leaks, the official press render of the Galaxy Note 9 along with the new S Pen has leaked out on the internet. This render was posted by noted leaker Evan Blass on his official Twitter account.
The render shows us the front and the back of the device confirming previous reports that Samsung has done minor changes to the design of the device. According to the renders, the back of the device comes with the most obvious changes in terms of the layout and design as the fingerprint scanner has moved from the side of the camera module to below the camera module. Similar to the Note 8, the Note 9 will also come with a dual camera sensor on the back of the device. The footprint of the rectangular fingerprint scanner is considerably smaller than in the Note 8.

Looking at the render, it is likely that Samsung has added the dual-aperture lens that the company launched with the Galaxy S9 series earlier this year. In addition, the device will come with the usual LED flash module on the back along with the Samsung branding below the fingerprint scanner.
It looks that the volume rocker and the Bixby button are on the left side of the device while the power button is on the right side of the smartphone. Moving to the front of the device, the bezels are still there on the top and the bottom of the device. This means that Samsung is not going all near bezel-less display as other smartphone players in the market.
The render also shows off the S Pen what is likely to be placed in the side cavity of the Note 9, similar to all the previous devices. One can also see the button that Samsung has added on the pen for additional functionality. Samsung has not issued any statement or additional details about the device at the time of writing. Hours after the press render, real-world images of the Note 9 appeared on Twitter from a Chinese user with handle ‘MMDDJ_’.
The two leaked images revealed what the Note 9 will look in real life, both from the front as well as the back. The images have been taken down at the time of writing but were posted by SamMobile in a report. One thing to note in the images is the fact that the device appears to have suffered some display damage.
