Samsung Galaxy Note 9 likely to be unveiled on August 9 in New York
South Korean smartphone maker Samsung is likely to unveil Samsung Galaxy NOte 9 on August 9 in New York. As per leaks, there is going to be a launch event for a new Galaxy device on 9 August. Though Samsung hasn’t specified the device name, the teaser showed a yellow coloured stylus which all but confirms that it is the Galaxy Note 9.
The leaks show the design of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It has got a rectangular shape, a metal frame and a likely glass back. There is a dual-lens camera and a fingerprint scanner on the back – so an in-display scanner looks unlikely. The Note 9 is poised to be a big deal and slightly bigger and better than the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, which launched way back in March. The scanner has been moved below the camera lens, somewhat similar to its position on the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but where that phone has its cameras stacked vertically, the Note 9 shown here has them side by side.
Other details include a 3.5mm headphone port, USB-C port, speaker grille, S Pen silo and microphone on the bottom edge, slim bezels (but no notch) on the front, power and volume buttons on the left edge and a Bixby button on the right. As well as the images above, you can also see all these things in the video below, which came from the same source.
Of course, that’s not to say it’ll be a massive update to last year’s phone with a 6.3-inch screen. No, we’re expecting iterative, but important changes, mostly to the internal specs, rather than a complete redesign on the outside.
The Galaxy Note 9 has received certification from the US FCC. The model that was certified by the FCC is the international version of the Note 9 ie. SM-N960F, though the version specific to the US will likely be named SM-N960U.
The smartphone is expected to come with a 6.3-inches QHD+ resolution display, Samsung Exynos 9810 or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6 GB/8 GB RAM and up to 256/512 GB of storage. As for the battery it is going to be 4000mAH. The total buttons come to four with the volume rocker, power and the third new button on the left side and the Bixby button on the right.
Apart from the Galaxy Note 9, the South Korean smartphone giant could also unveil the Gear S4 smartwatch. No details are available about the watch. Keep watching this page for more updated.
