Note 9 may be released earlier than Note 8 was, firmware builds already in circulation

The build numbers in question - N960FXXE0ARB7 and N960FXXU0ARC5 - are already circulating, two weeks earlier than the same firmware leak about the Note 8. Eventually, this could mean that the Note 9 would come in the beginning of August, instead of towards the end of the summer, as Samsung launched the Galaxy S9 much earlier than its predecessor as well this year.
Infinity Display 2.0 design that made a cameo in the Galaxy S9 and S9+, with tougher frame and cover glass, and a more orthodox fingerprint scanner placement on the back. The Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 845 go without saying with their 2nd-gen 10nm process, and we might see 6GB RAM/128GB storage as the starting memory combo.The Note 9 is expected to sport the
As for the camera, we'd be surprised if Samsung has developed something different than the excellent dual S9+ shooter specifically for the Note 9, so about the only hard to guess part is the battery capacity. The S9 and S9+ have the same packs as their predecessors, so it might not be such a mystery, after all. Can you guess?
- Display 6.3" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(22h talk time)

According to Ice Universe sales of S9 has dropped 40% compared to S8. https://twitter.com/UniverseIc
So, early note 9 rumors may have some credibility.

I really want to get this phone but can't see it offering much new that what the S9 plus has. By then the S9 plus will have came down in price by quite a bit too.

Yeah, the Note 9 may have two problems that may impact sales when it is released: the S9 Plus and the Note 8.

Yes srgonu companies should change update cycle of the device orremove the plus variant as iPhoneX, 8/Plus, Note8, S8/+ & S9/+ aren’t even looking any old & we are hearing rumours about Xs & Note9 are coming.

They should really switch to all in house processors and make them able to stand up to the iPhone that comes out at the end of the year & release all 3 devices at the same time. No need for the marginal boost the Note gives them in Q3 & 4 when they could have higher consistent sales by not having people hold out every 6 months.

I know what they're trying to say, but that title is badly worded. Sounds like the Note 9 is literally hitting the market before the Note 8 does.

Wow, the Note 9 will have a time traveling feature. Can't wait to play with that. Be careful not to cause any time paradoxes.
