Samsung confirms Galaxy Note 9 "Unpacked" event will take place August 9

Samsung confirms Galaxy Note 9
After numerous rumors claimed the Galaxy Note 9’s announcement would take place on August 9, Samsung has finally taken to its official social media channels to confirm the date, while also reverting back its old schedule in the process by bringing the Galaxy Note 9 announcement forward a few weeks.

The teaser itself actually makes no specific mention of the Galaxy Note 9, but prominently features a gold S Pen, suggesting a new gold variant of the flagship may also be in the works. In any case, the focus on the upgraded stylus falls in line with recent rumors that claimed the accessory would support Bluetooth this year. In doing so, users of the Galaxy Note 9 may be able to employ the S Pen as a wireless speaker whenever in close proximity of the connected device. Alternately, there are rumors surrounding a feature that would allow users to write on a blank piece of paper. However, because the stylus is inkless, whatever is written would be automatically notched down as a note on the device’s display, even if not in direct contact with the flagship.

In regards to what internal specifications the device will offer, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will be present inside the US variant, while the international model will feature Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 Octa. Furthermore, the processors will be coupled with 6GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. Moreover, acting as an exclusive to certain markets, a model with 512GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM will be made available. Also, on the topic of software, Android 8.1 Oreo is expected to ship straight out of the box, although a speedy update to Android P upon its release could be possible.

Following the announcement of the Galaxy Note 9 in 42 days' time, Samsung is expected to open up a pre-order period of around two weeks, followed by shipments in the final week of August. Presently, it's unclear exactly why Samsung has chosen to revert back to its old schedule, but it will certainly give the South Korean market a head start over the LG V40, the 2018 iPhone lineup, and HMD Global’s Nokia 9 flagship

Liking that color, this will for sure be the phone to beat for 2018/2019. No other phone will even come close or sell nearly as much.

^^^Fanboy-ism at its finest. One of those things is your opinion which you're perfectly entitled to. The other is pure fantasy. The Note is a phenomenal phone. It will never be the highest-selling.

Agreed it will be too expensive to sell as much as the S9/S9+

I love the Note as much as the next guy but it's a Niche phone, thus it will never be the top selling phone, or even top 5.

Come on be real dude. You are right for now that there is no phone like it, because there is no other note phone like it, yet But it will not be the best selling out there, it never has been.

From September to December of last year when the Note 8 launched they sold 10 million units. That’s not the highest selling phone by any means.

I kinda agree. They should just cancel the Plus model, and release their S flagship and the Note series in May together on the same day.

I like their current set up for release, gives them a few months to improve the performance of the S-series for the Note device. Also, the Plus variant gives consumers the option for the larger display without having to pay the premium for the S-pen if they don't intend to use it

Canceling the plus would be a mistake. Some people want the plus because it bigger and they don't care for what extras the note offers.

yes since very long time I request that, it will be great if they release S and Note series at the same time, and stop making S plus series because its soo much similar as Note phones

It's not, dude. The only thing similar between the Note & Plus is the Samsung logo. Everything new that was introduced on the S 5 months prior is improved on the Note, plus the new features exclusive to it.

I have Note 8 and S9 plus and both phone are very similar and Note9 could be the same as S9 plus! This is fact and everyone say it not only me..

This is gonna be another great phone, but I skipped on the Note 8 and I'll be skipping on this. Still got my Samsung Galaxy 6 edge Plus, which will be 4 years old come next September. Waiting to see what Sammy does with this foldable phone, but still have reservations about how that bend in the screen is going to hold up over time, and even tho I would be able to afford it I ain't paying £1800 for that f**ker! Note 10 for me next year probably, or dare I say an iPhone plus. My brother is driving me insane with him describing every other phone on the planet inferior to the iPhone lol.

Unless you mean 2019, the S6 Edge Plus will be 3 years old in September. It came out in 2015.

Setting here looking at my S-pen. I just don't see how they could get a speaker in there. I don't see it happening but it might.
