Samsung has filed a patent for a new smartphone that (unsurprisingly) looks a lot like the iPhone X. It sports super-slim bezels all around its edge-to-edge display, with a notch that houses its front-facing camera and sensors along the top side. For individuals who incline toward a Galaxy S9-sized leader, S9+ has a huge 6.2-inch show. For the uninitiated, Baikal is one of the world's largest freshwater lakes. The dual camera modules seem to be pushed to the edges, and placed horizontally, just like we have seen on the iPhone 8 Plus.
Samsung is expected to launch its next-gen Galaxy Note 9 flagship sometime this fall. After all, the flagship is likely going to compete with Apple's 2018 iPhone X and Huawei's next Mate smartphone.
Expect plenty more Note 9 rumours and leaks to be revealed in the coming weeks but it looks set to be one to watch out for. The device is rumored to run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 or Samsung's in-house Exynos 9810 chip depending on the region.More news: IMD predicts normal monsoon, forecasts 97 per cent rainfall

Regarding their screen size, the Samgung Galaxy S9 has a 5.8-inch screen while the S9+ has a 6.2-inch screen. Or kids could - radical idea here, we know - chew up time talking to each other on the device. Samsung's mobile business head DJ Koh has told media that the Galaxy Note 9 would come with an upgraded Bixby 2.0 AI assistant. Plus, of course, the Galaxy Note 9 will also feature the S-Pen stylus which can be used to take notes. According to a tweet from an anonymous leaker @UniverseIce on Twitter, the Galaxy Note 9 could include either a 3850mAh battery or 4000mAh battery. However, Korean site The Investor reported recently that Samsung Display had developed 3-4 ways to integrate the fingerprint reader under the display, and Samsung Electronics was seriously considering one of them for the Galaxy Note 9.
The Galaxy Note 9 may also be the first Samsung smartphone to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, according to a report from The Korean Herald. There's still some doubt here.
This would be slightly earlier than previous years with Note devices usually being unveiled in August.
