Samsung will launch its second flagship smartphone for the year in the coming months and we will gradually start hearing more rumors and reports about this handset. The Galaxy Note 9 is due in the second half of this year and if a source with a somewhat solid track record is to be believed, Samsung won’t be making any major design changes to the Galaxy Note 9.
A China-based Twitter leakster who goes by the moniker Ice Universe has been right on some accounts in the past. The leakster now says that Samsung won’t be making any major design changes to the Galaxy Note 9 and that it’s going to essentially look the same as the Galaxy Note 8.
Not that it’s going to be a bad thing because the Galaxy Note 8’s design was much appreciated. However, those who were holding out on major design changes might have to wait until next year as they might not find the upcoming flagship phablet to their liking.
Samsung appears to be following the same strategy that it applied to the Galaxy S9 this year. The new flagship doesn’t come with substantial design changes as well and looks very similar to the Galaxy S8. Some reports have suggested that this has hurt Galaxy S9 sales as customers don’t feel the need to spend more money on a new flagship that looks like the one from last year.
That’s likely to be the sentiment with the Galaxy Note 9 as well if this information is accurate.
