Some pretty convincing photos of Samsung's big upcoming smartphone have leaked

We're just a few weeks away from Samsung announcing the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9.

That's to say there isn't much to report on the Galaxy Note 9's design if two photos that were leaked on Slashleaks and supposedly show the Galaxy Note 9 are accurate. We can see a dual rear camera setup and a rear fingerprint reader, the latter of which is in a new location compared to the Note 8. Samsung CEO DJ Koh offered a tantalizing teaser when he used a test version of the Galaxy Note 9 out in public, and today, the first live shots of the device have been leaked online. Apart from the nearly identical shape, the Galaxy Note 9 and Note 8 have one other thing in common: they both come with an S Pen.

This is the second photo leaked that shows off the blue handset and bright yellow stylus.

The image confirms the slight design changes we've already seen leaked. They're ultrasonic, and will likely be included in as many as 60 million high-end devices, including the Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10, and some of the Galaxy A series. Are you okay with it looking like the Note 8, happy that at least the fingerprint sensor will be easier to reach?
