Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Blue variant

The launch event for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is right around the corner. And while there have been number of leaks around the device, the latest one comes courtesy of Samsung itself. The South Korean tech giant accidentally published a pre-order page for the Galaxy Note 9 on its New Zealand website. The page reads, “Say Hello to Super Power” and showcases the back panel of the Blue variant.

The page has currently been taken down, but not before Evan Blass, who was also the first one to spot it, could post a screenshot of it on Twitter. As mentioned, it showcases the Blue variant of the smartphone and the much touted Yellow S Pen placed on top of it. From the looks of it, not a lot seems to have changed though. The smartphone features a USB Type-C port placed at the bottom, right in between of the 3.5mm headphone jack and the speaker grille. The dual-camera setup and the fingerprint sensor placed right below it can also be seen.

While the image here showcases what is said to be the Engineered Blue variant, we know through previous rumors that the smartphone will also be available in Mystic Black and Artisan Copper color variants. Recently, a leaked hands-on video had also surfaced online, giving us an idea of the dual-edge curved Infinity Display at the front. The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to come with a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, which is likely to feature an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

On the inside, the smartphone is said to come powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC or the Exynos 9810 SoC, depending on the market. Additionally, it is expected to be loaded with 8GB of RAM and come in three storage variants including 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. This will most likely give the smartphone an edge over the Galaxy S9 series. A big change this year is going to be with the S Pen, which is said to be Bluetooth enabled this time.

Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9, at its Unpacked event in New York.

Other accessories including a new Wireless Charger Duo are also expected to be unveiled.
