If you're looking forward to the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9, then chances are you're hoping for big changes to the way it looks – but that seems to be less likely, based on a new leak.
The info comes from Slashleaks (opens in new tab), which is showing off a purported screen protector for the new Note 9 – and it suggests there won't be much that's different from last year in terms of design.
The main change – which lends an air of validity to the claims – is that the bezels have shrunk above and below the screen, which likely means the screen size will be increased slightly, or the overall device will be smaller.
A less-than-curious mix
There's speculation from commenters on the leak that some of the openings on the new screen protector are larger or moved, but in a comparison with the Galaxy Note 8 it looks like everything will stay in the same place.
That means a notification light, IR scanner, proximity sensor, light sensor, front-facing camera and iris scanner. That's already a lot to pack in there, so a second front-facing camera to match Apple's TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X doesn't look likely.
This is only a screen protector for an unreleased phone, so it could easily just be based on predicted specs at this point - we'll have to wait until late August / early September to find out whether it'll be valid.
