Looks like the Galaxy Note 9 won't include a shutter button after all10
In what will be a huge disappointment to fans and those hoping for an enhanced photography experience, the cut-out in question is actually just two holes added by the manufacturer of this specific case in order to be used with a small lanyard. This means no special extra buttons will be included, users will simply have to make do with the volume rocker, power key, and the controversial Bixby button that will have access to the updated version of the assistant upon launch in August.
Aside from the smartphone’s lack of an extra button, not everything surrounding the Galaxy Note 9 is negative. In fact, it was recently revealed that Samsung had plans to release the smartphone in a new brown color, alongside slightly updated variants of its usual four offerings. Additionally, recent information confirmed the South Korean giant’s plans to include a very respectable 4,000mAh battery inside its next flagship, a huge boost over last year’s 3,300mAh power pack that the Galaxy Note 8 features.
Currently, those interested in the Galaxy Note 9 can expect the smartphone to be announced later this summer on August 9 alongside the Gear S4 smartwatch and possibly a new Bixby speaker. Additionally, shipments of the flagship smartphone should commence towards the end of that same month.
