A month shy from its official debut, and there still seems to be no wow factor to hype consumers who are looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9’s unveiling. The latest leaked render also appears to suggest that the new phablet won’t come with a display notch and it would only be a minor upgrade compared to last year’s Note 8.

On Tuesday, Android Headlines has obtained a new representation of the Note 9, and it pretty much confirms the design of the flagship device. The news outlet did not name its source, but it did say that the source is “reliable.” The image only shows the front of the smartphone, and it’s easy to see that it looks just like its predecessor.

The Note 9 still sports the same Infinity Display, front camera and other sensors. The render also shows the same width of top and bottom bezels, as well as similar side buttons. The image does not provide other valuable information about the device’s software and back camera module. Nevertheless, it does confirm previous speculations that the Note 9 won’t have drastic visual changes.

Samsung fans shouldn’t expect to see a Note 9 with significantly higher screen-to-body ratio, given that the Note 9 presented by the render seems to be a carbon copy of the Note 8. In fact, the power key, Bixby button and volume buttons are still situated where they are found on the Galaxy Note 8.

SamMobile, however, believes that the render might be inaccurate even though Android Headlines says its an official one. According to the Samsung-focused news site, official press renders typically show the wallpaper and lockscreen of upcoming phones. So it’s possible that the render could be inaccurate, or one that comes from an accessory manufacturer.

The Galaxy Note 9, which isn’t coming with a display notch unlike flagship devices from Samsung’s rivals, is expected to come with a slightly bigger 6.4-inch screen. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 8 featured a 6.3-inch display. Previous reports also stated that the upcoming phablet will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor and will come equipped with 6GB RAM and a 4,000mAh battery.

Samsung has already sent out invitations for an Aug. 9 Unpacked event in New York City. The company is expected to introduce the Galaxy Note 8’s successor and announce its pricing and availability at the event.
