New Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks: Specs, image and an unpleasant surprise

In last two days a lot of information has leaked about Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the next flagship smartphone to be launched by the company. A good chunk of that information is exactly what we would expect from this device, but one piece of it is also quiet unexpected. And when we look at the entire picture by fitting all bits and pieces together, the overall picture is not looking very good – at least for now.

The first thing that leaked was a picture of Galaxy Note 9. The picture was leaked by Twitter leaker Ice Universe (@UniverseIce). While this leaker does not have a 100% accurate track record (no one has), he has been spot-on most of the time when it comes to Samsung devices, so there’s a good reason to believe that Galaxy Note 9 is going to look something like this:

As you can see, this is exactly like Galaxy Note 8 with a few minor changes here and there. The back of device is not showing up in the image, and that’s the only saving grace.

The next among these latest Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks is new information about specifications. It’s turning out that company has already started testing the device, and as part of that it’s also examining the upcoming beast on benchmarking sites. Thanks to those examinations, a benchmark test leaked yesterday revealed the specifications of upcoming Samsung flagship. Posted on Geekbench the test was for Samsung SM-N960U, a model number that represents upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9. And it revealed that the flagship will come with Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM and Android 8.1 Oreo, the latest stable release of Android. All of these things are obvious at best, because that’s what you would expect from any flagship device launching today.

However, the final piece of info that leaked recently is not a very pleasant one – it’s turning out that one of the biggest features rumored for the device may not be present in it. According to another tweet from leaker Ice Universe Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is not going to come with under display fingerprint sensor. When a user asked him whether Samsung’s next flagship would come with in-display fingerprint sensor or not, he said “No”.

So it seems that just like its predecessor Galaxy Note 9 is also going to be a repackaged version of Galaxy S series siblings. And that is, obviously, not going to be a good thing.
