Suspicious Live Images of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with On-screen Fingerprint Recognition

However, these images look very doubtful to us which claims to represent depict the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Also, it was also in news that this year Samsung will launch its flagship phablet a little earlier this year than usual. Some Korean Media Sources also reported the mass production of 6.2″ OLED panels has already started this month, a couple of months ahead of schedule for Galaxy Note 9.

As expected, turns out to be fake. The ‘leak’ used photoshopped images from a website.

Moreover, the images look entirely convincing, but the reasons to claim it fake outnumber those in favor of their authenticity. And if talking about its authenticity, photoshopping over the Galaxy Note 9 wrapped in plastic makes it very difficult task to be done. However, if you look at the images carefully at the front and back of the device, you will see no fingerprint sensor to be present there which adds up to the earlier report from Ming-Chi Kuo of testing virtual fingerprint of its phablet. Likely, these images of Note 9 testing variant and not of the actual retail product? What do you think? Do let us know in the comments sections below.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Specifications

Even though, the Galaxy Note 9’s launch due in Q3, the information about the device is seen on the unofficial sources. The most prominent news of all is that the Galaxy Note 9 might feature the fantastic technology of on-screen fingerprint sensor unveiled by Synaptics. As recently launched Galaxy S9 and S9+ failed to inherit it, chances are high with the flagship phablet.

Another expected news was it would feature massive 4,000 mAh battery as Samsung has already registered its trademark and testing has begun.

Also, the Galaxy S9 was spotted on the Geekbench as Samsung SM-N960U with score 2190 and 8806 on single-core and multi-core respectively. And, these are indeed the expected results from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845, since the Galaxy S9+ pitches the same results. You may not find the stellar improvements in Note 9 over S9+, but you might see the Note 9 with 8GB RAM variant too.

The Galaxy Note 9 was found to be running on Android v8.1 Oreo with 4GB RAM (disappointed to see that). However, this would be too early to concrete any judgment for it as it is set to launch in this summer and we have a lot of time for many upcoming rumors and leaks.

Expected Release Date of Samsung Galaxy Note 9

As per the Korean Sources claim, Samsung will launch its flagship phablet earlier than expected and you may see it anytime in the Q3, 2018.

Wrapping it Up
