Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Live Images, Press Renders Leak Ahead of August 9 Launch

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Live Images, Press Renders Leak Ahead of August 9 Launch

  • The fingerprint sensor placement has been changed
  • A Lilac Purple variant is expected
  • Launch is set for August 9 in New York

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is all set for an official unveiling at the Galaxy Unpacked event in New York on August 9. The handset recently surfaced on Geekbench, and now we have two instances of the design of the Galaxy Note 9 having been spotted in alleged live images and press renders. Both of them reveal the new placement of the fingerprint sensor that has now been shifted to just below the dual rear camera setup. The size of the sensor, however, feels too small in proportion to the handset itself.

The live images, first spotted on SlashLeaks, show an extreme bezel-less display on the Galaxy Note 9 with the top bezel appearing smaller than the one seen on its predecessor, Galaxy Note 8. A heart rate monitor is also seemingly present on the back of the smartphone. SM-N960U is the model number on this handset, coinciding with previous Galaxy Note 9 leaks.

Yet another spotting on SlashLeaks gives us a look at the purported press render of the Lilac Purple variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It has seemingly been procured from a Dutch website. This variant might get a Gold coloured S Pen, according to a recent leak. Apart from this colour, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to arrive in Blue, Black, Brown, Lavender, and Grey.
