Despite a number of significant upgrades to Samsung addressed to the forthcoming Galaxy Note 9, the South Korean company will be accused of limiting and restricting the best features on the smartphone. But new leaked information corroborated that the technology giant has far more ambitious plans for the impending flagship smartphone.
Dutch site MobielKopen has discovered Samsung plans that it has submitted for a the Galaxy Note 9 re-design which virtually has no bezels on three sizes and just a minimal top bezel. And yes, the Korean OEM is has managed to achieve all of this without placing a cutouts or a notch.
Interestingly, the radically core aesthetic design of the new Galaxy Note 9 does looks to take one of Apple’s most futuristic features from the iPhone X and propel it further. Although the Cupetino-headquartered company accomplishes almost no bottom chin on its current flagship handset thanks to infinity curving the OLED display around the lowest point of the smartphone and placing all the display’s connectors in the back, Samsung’s idea is to simply keep extending the AMOLED screen display halfway down the back.
With that said, the extended AMOLED display will act as secondary display on the back of the phone which allows the powerful main rear-facing camera to be used for selfie photographs, which simply get rid the need for a space-consuming frontal camera sensor or a pop-up camera setups like the Vivo Nex and Oppo Find X.
In the patent application submitted to the American patent office USPTO in September 2017, the radical design of a Galaxy Note 9 is shown with an exceptionally higher screen-to-body ratio.
Moreover, the Galaxy Note 9 will be shipped without a physical fingerprint scanner. With Samsung Electronics known to be pushing this under the display fingerprint sensor in its next major smartphone release, it is safe to say that is also the case for the Note 9.
If there is a drawback to the new radical Galaxy Note 9 design, is that Samsung will completely ditch the headphone jack port. The company has been one of an ever-smaller number of premium smartphone manufacturers to keep optimistic with the audio jack port and it has gained a lot of credit for this. But, eventually, we all know the future of the industry is wireless.
With Samsung known to be planning a similarly comprehensive redesign for the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus in 2019, we might not have to wait until next year to see the South Korean OEM’s pipeline happened.
