Samsung currently in an excellent position in the Android market. Despite the Korean brand losing a bit of its high-profile presence in the mid-range market, the South Korean company isn’t backing down even a bit with its flagship line of devices. Often considered for setting standard in the Android smartphone market, the South Korean giant should be back again later this year with a successor to their Note 8 smartphone.
Reports claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 could be heading to the smartphone market as early as August 9th, 2018. This means that potential teases from Samsung should be a few months away giving us our first look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Based off of the latest render from OnLeaks, we could finally see Samsung shifting the well-criticized fingerprint sensor from the top right of the phone to the middle of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 were criticized for sporting their fingerprint sensors right next to the camera lens. With the launch of the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, Samsung has addressed the issue as well as re-position the fingerprint sensor in a much more manageable position.
Similar to last year’s Note 8, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 seems to be sticking with a dual-camera setup. As reports suggested, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch would focus a ton of its capabilities on its camera performance, and the Korean company wouldn’t back down without a fight after Chinese rivals overtook the S9’s score over at DXOMark.
Other than that, there isn’t much to pickup on based off of the above render. Considering how accurate OnLeaks has been in the past definitely adds some trust into the bucket. However, if this seems to be the final design of the device, I think we’re looking at Samsung trying to go back to the drawing board to decide what it needs to do to differentiate itself from the harsh competition in terms of design.
