Hi-res render of Galaxy Note 9 surfaces: yellow stylus, blue phone

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Press Render 805px

The fingerprint scanner is seen below these cameras, rather than beside it as we had seen in the previous variant of the Note series. The render also shows the new S Pen that is said to include various enhancements, including the rumoured Bluetooth connectivity support.

In 2013, Samsung released the Galaxy Round - its first attempt at a smartphone with a curved display - to select Asian markets so it could learn from its mistakes to wow a larger population.

Samsung Electronics on Tuesday kept silent about a post that went viral, supposedly showing an accidental reveal of its upcoming flagship Galaxy Note 9 smartphone by its smartphone business chief Koh Dong-jin.

To accommodate for the device's massive screen, Samsung would have to build an even bigger battery, which has raised concerns among some at the company, the Journal explained.

He says Samsung will be shipping close to 40 million S10 devices next year with the majority being the larger two. Such a device would place Samsung in a place of prominence, as it would become the first manufacturer to introduce a foldable screen, which has been hotly anticipated for years.

So far, however, those predictions haven't held up; Samsung's mythical folding phone still hasn't arrived.

We expect the device will have similar popularity to other high-end speakers with little known smart digital assistants, such as the Harman Kardon Invoke.

When not in use, the secondary display can be turned into a touchpad, which could see it turned into a gaming console rather like Nintendo's DS range. To fit in your pocket, Samsung's phone will fold in half "like a wallet". We have also heard the rumors that at least one of the models will feature a higher pixel density of 600 PPI, which is an increase of 30 PPI over the current models. When folded, the device would have a small display bar on the front and cameras in the back.
