With the first half of the year almost over, our attention is now focused on to what smartphone manufacturers will unveil in the second half of 2018. There have been a little rumbling regarding Samsung’s next flagship device, the Galaxy Note 9 and as per a leak on Twitter, one should not get too excited about the design of the upcoming handset as it is rumoured to have similar design elements as its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8.

This time he claims to have exposed the real Galaxy Note 9 design. From the images, we can see that it looks pretty identical to the Note 8 and Samsung have used this design cue to save on some manufacturing costs.

Very little is known but people familiar with the matter claim that when Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note 9, the South Korean tech giants will highlight an upgraded camera. There may be no cosmetic changes to the design and in all likelihood, the Galaxy Note 9 will look similar to the Note 8.
