Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 could become official in late July according to report
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 could make its official debut in late July. Despite the Samsung Galaxy S9 series recently reaching the 1 million sales milestone in South Korea, shipments are reportedly lagging behind Samsung’s initial expectations. Because of this, one new report claims the smartphone giant will bring forward the launch of the Galaxy Note 9.

In actual fact, the new information claims Samsung will be officially unveiling the Galaxy Note 9 one month earlier than usual, towards the end of July, with sales of its next flagship reportedly beginning mid-August. This decision will ultimately allow Samsung to provide its premium smartphone lineup with significant boost while also giving it a head start against Apple. After all, Samsung’s Silicon Valley-based rival is once again expected to launch its new iPhone lineup in September. Additionally, the early launch also backs up two previous claims in relation to the future of the company’s flagship devices.

Specifically, the report reiterates Samsung’s plans to launch the Galaxy S10 in January in the hope of maximizing the device’s sales potential throughout the rest of 2019. After all, just over a month after the anniversary flagship goes on sale, it will be at risk of being overshadowed by a new Samsung product. The second launch, which is currently expected to take place towards the end of February, possibly at MWC 2019, will see Samsung debut its first foldable phone. Now, it’s unclear how quickly the smartphone will be available to purchase, but the uniqueness of the product could certainly dent sales of the Galaxy S10.

Officially, Samsung is yet to comment on its updated launch schedule but it would certainly make sense when all of its upcoming launches are taken into consideration. Nevertheless, considering the amount of time left before any of the new smartphone's launch, the South Korean giant still has the choice of sticking to a more traditional release schedule.

Why does it sound like you are making some excuse.

No excuse. If the Note 9 was dropping in 2 months, more info would've been leaked out by now. Unless they're really keeping it under wraps & trying to be like, "Surprise ninjas! It does have an in display FPS!" I don't see how it's releasing earlier than usual.

An excuse for what? Note has been traditionally released mid August so this panic push forward is actually not news...

Hope next Note9 will be meant for the real Note users this time, not mainly about hunting for iboys. Surprise us Samsung!

No, they didn't rush a note before. The last 3 have came within the same time frame. So mid August is not rushed.

The note 9 gonna be phone of the year for sure. Haters gonna hate but the truth is that Samsung manages to overcome the global selling slowdown which others can't. Wish our God Samsung the best of luck.

An extraordinary person or company can be called God in order to give honor to what they have sacrificed, in my opinion. Anyway, don't fight each other, okay? We're here to shut up those anti-Samsung activists, trolls and haters like kiko, circo1900 , natedias... Pls be reunited. I'll make sure they'll never come talk crap about Samsung again. Join me!

I've been a Note user since the II, but you're being ridiculous. The fact is that a majority of Note 8 users are most likely going to skip this one and wait for the 10/X or whatever they decide to call it. And no, phone enthusiasts on sites like these don't make up the majority.

truthfully the note 9 will not be enough of an upgrade to justify giving up my note8 but as I have had the Note, Note2, Note3, Note4, Note4 Edge, Note5, Note7, Note7 post-recall and a Note8. (I had 9 Note5's T-Mobile kept replacing them because they didn't work took them 9 phones to admit it was my plan that was the problem) so realistically I probably will get the Note9.

LOL Be real dude. Samsung's AMOLED panels are widely used now, even Apple is also agree that OLED is better display. Go kiss your Xperia's washout old school outdated TFT display if you still love that screen that much. And Sony gonna quit mobile department for sure just like it did with VAIO brand becuse Sony is poor weak and can't develop itself no more. The better option is it should enter porn industry and bring more perverts in which is the most popular sector and represents quite a large part of Japan economy.
