TENAA listing shows a redesigned Samsung Galaxy S9-like phone

Samsung is believed to be working on a mini variant of the Galaxy S9 flagship. What do you think about Galaxy Note 9 so far? However, the camera at the back as well as the arrangement of the fingerprint sensor is not the same as the Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be launched by Samsung with a larger screen and a better battery, the change being a substantial one compared to last year's model. And now, supposedly close to the launch, a bunch of specifications of the smartphone have been leaked.

Samsung India on Wednesday launched Galaxy J7 Duo with dual camera - a first in the popular "J" series - at Rs 16,990. But traditionally the displays on the S-series smartphones are a bit more rounded than those on the Note series smartphones. The Galaxy S9+ comes with a 3,500mAh battery.

How do we know model SM-G8850 is the Galaxy S9 and not some other handset Samsung has in mind for China?

This one is a no-brainer. Indeed, as sexy as it is you'll still want to ensure it doesn't get scratched and scraped. It could come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/256GB storage. While the name of the chipset is not specified, it could be the same Exynos 9810 SoC used in the Galaxy S9. It will be a combination of wide-angle and telephoto to achieve the famous Bokeh affect. However, the listing does not mention the presence of variable aperture similar to that on the Galaxy S9. The speaker is located behind together with the 13MP + 5MP dual rear camera and LED flash. Running Android 7.1.1 Nougat with TouchWiz UX on top, the smartphone is expected to receive the Android Oreo update soon. Some of the other reports have also hinted otherwise i.e. the Galaxy Note 9 may retain the same design as the Note 8, without the notch. About its security features, it has iris scanner along with a rear-facing fingerprint.

Samsung is now leading the FIDO Alliance that aims to develop standardized authentication technologies, including biometrics, across industries.
