Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks have been heating up, with a variety of specs, benchmarks, release dates and more coming to light.
Today we have the next logical step, a marketing render, which confirms the design of the device.
The image was leaked by Ice Universe, who has a good track record and had previously leaked renders of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Unfortunately, fans of the Samsung Galaxy Note range will be disappointed. The brand normally stands for innovation, but the design appears virtually identical to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and even the in-display fingerprint reader appears to be cancelled in favour of the usual back-sided fingerprint reader.
The internals and camera would, of course, have had an upgrade. Earlier leaks revealed that Samsung will be going with their in-house SoC as Note 9 will come with the new Exynos 9815 processor and 8 GB RAM. Apart from this, the device is rumored to come with Android 8.1.0 out of the box and will hopefully have an option to upgrade to Android P.
If the Note 9 is merely a small iterative update will our readers give it a skip? Let us know below.
