With less than two weeks until its official unveiling, Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is now leaking online in full force, having most recently been sighted in over a dozen new protective case renders which surfaced online earlier today. The images that can be seen in the gallery below show the Midnight Black variant of the device, as well as one gray model whose existence remains somewhat dubious, with reports on the color options Samsung is preparing for its next Android flagship still being conflicting.
The overall design of the handset itself corresponds with previous sightings of the upcoming phablet, with the Galaxy Note 9 being depicted as yet another device dominated by an 18.5:9 "Infinity Display" panel, a Super AMOLED module with a QHD+ resolution that's wrapped around the long edges of the smartphone's body. A single camera and an iris scanner can be seen on its slim top bezel, with dual-stereo speakers apparently being included as well, much like they were on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. Samsung is retaining the 3.5mm jack with the next generation of the Galaxy Note family, being the last major phone maker that has yet to scrap the widely used audio port from any one of its devices.
The back of the Galaxy Note 9 looks somewhat similar to that of the Galaxy S9 Plus, with a horizontal dual-camera setup sitting above a fingerprint reader and to the left of a dual-tone LED flash and a heart rate monitor. One notable difference between the two comes in the form of a wide-angle lens that will apparently be part of the Galaxy Note 9 package, with the device also being rumored to improve on the imaging capabilities of its predecessor in terms of slow-motion recordings. Samsung will unveil its new Android phablet on August 9, whereas the handset should become available for purchase around the world on August 24, according to recent reports.
