Samsung’s CEO DJ Koh has been spotted testing out the Galaxy Note 9 in public, ahead of the handset’s official launch.
We already know quite a bit about the handset, following a multitude of leaks over the past few months, and now we’ve actually seen the handset in the wild.
As you can see in the image below, the handset has a different camera housing to that of the Galaxy Note 8.
The fingerprint sensor is now located beneath the camera unit as well – this will make it easier to reach.
As of right now, this appears to be the only cosmetic change Samsung has implemented inside the Galaxy Note 9’s design.
