A Fresh Image From China's Weibo Claims To Highlight Virtual Fingerprint Recognition On This Year's Alleged Galaxy Note9; Shows An Ugly Top Bezel

The first concrete rumors for Samsung's Galaxy Note9 surfaced late in 2017. They, correctly so far, claimed that the phablet will feature virtual fingerprint recognition. Now, we've got another claim cited by a lot of different sources. It lays on an image which surfaced on the Chinese social network Weibo, and was initially reported on by Zol. The publication claims that Samsung intends to file a patent for the Galaxy Note9; with the image in question being a part of this application.

However, it's highly unlikely that the Galaxy Note9 will follow the design shown below. Unless Samsung wants to shoot itself in the foot. The interesting details for today's leak lie in the specifications shared by Zol. They cover a lot of different areas for the Note9, so even if untrue, someone clearly took a lot of time to compile them.

These sound reasonable for a 2018 flagship, suggesting 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage along the Snapdragon 845. An interesting addition is the 3.5mm earphone jack, as Samsung also refuses to follow the Bluetooth bandwagon. Of course, there's a lot of time until the Note9 is launched, so such a detail can change. Finally, the detailed specifications posted by Zol also promise a far-fetching 43MP rear camera sensor.

Combine this with virtual fingerprint sensor and Samsung will once again succeed at demonstrating its ability to work with high-end specifications. A big, big change includes 3D facial scanning. But at the moment, Apple's position in its self-created segment looks pretty strong. For facial recognition, you need to stay tuned for Huawei's P20 lineup. They'll show how far the tech has progressed for Android. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
