Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be a disappointment, suggests leak
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leak, which gave us the first look at the company's highly anticipated flagship smartphone, has left us all disappointed. An acclaimed tipster has said that the Note 9 will look exactly like its predecessor and that the upcoming phone won't come with an under-display fingerprint sensor - a feature that was being widely talked about. Here's a sneak peek.

Tipster, Ice Universe says Samsung has become "lazy"
Samsung has clearly adopted Apple's 'S' update to release a new iPhone every other year with the same design but upgraded specs. However, in this case, Ice Universe has accused Samsung of not offering a new design because it looks "to save manufacturing costs." The tipster further said that the company has become "lazy" and shared renders of what "Samsung can achieve" but doesn't.
Note 9 will not have an in-display fingerprint sensor
Earlier, some rumors suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 will be Samsung's first phone to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, Ice Universe confirmed that Note 9 would not get this feature. Notably, the tipster has been extremely accurate in recent years, especially with unreleased Samsung smartphones.

Note 9 will be Note 8 with updated specs
A listing spotted on Geekbench shows a handset with model number SM-N960U, and it could be Note 9. The tested handset features an octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB RAM and runs Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone is rumored to sport dual 12-megapixel rear camera sensors (like the Galaxy S9+), a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED 18.5:9 aspect ratio display and a 4,000mAh battery.
