Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to be introduced on August 9th?

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to be introduced on August 9th?
According to a new report published today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will finally meet the light of day on (drum roll please) August 9th. That is two weeks earlier than the date when the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was introduced last year. The actual launch could take place at the end of August. Earlier speculation this year that called for an earlier release of the Galaxy Note 9 said that Samsung wanted the phone out before this year's crop of iPhone units is announced. In addition, Samsung is supposedly looking to move up the launch of the 10th anniversary Galaxy S10 next year, so that it has space to promote its long-awaited foldable smartphone.

The "Unpacked" event at which the Galaxy Note 9 will be released is expected to take place in New York City. The phone is expected to feature an upgraded rear-facing dual camera system, possibly the same two 12MP sensors found on the Samsung Galaxy S9+. The camera will include the new variable aperture feature that ranges from a wide f/1.5 to f/2.4. Those in the U.S. and China should expect the Galaxy Note 9 to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, while elsewhere the Exynos 9810 chipset will be under the hood.

What we won't find is an under-display fingerprint scanner. According to the latest information, this feature will make its Samsung debut on the Galaxy S10. What we do expect to see is a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution. The handset's Infinity Display has an aspect ratio of 18.5:9, and the phone will include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.

Yesterday, there was talk that the late July unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9 was pushed back a couple of weeks due to a redesign. Apparently, Samsung’s Vice Chairman Lee Jan-Yong was supposedly checking out the competition at stores in Shenzhen when he came to the realization that the grip on the Galaxy Note 9 was not up to snuff. So the executive allegedly ordered Samsung engineers to reduce the glass display's thickness by 0.5mm.

While the August 9th date has not yet been confirmed by Sammy, you can still circle the date on your calendar; just use a pencil in case it needs to be changed.

I’m sure this phone will be awesome but like the S9 it’ll be a minor upgrade from last year. I guess I’ll keep my note 8 another year.

Same here. This is shaping up to be an iPhone year for me. If that 6.5 inch model is true, I’m all over it.

Don’t do it. 6 months ago I went from the S8 to the iPhone 8 and I’m regretting it. The large screen on the iPhone may look nice but you’ll be sacrificing so many features that make Samsung what it is.

Nothing fancy. S9 with a pen and bit less battery. You'll regret only if you really use an iPhone and switch from it. No one cares if a buffalo rolls in mud.

That's how simplistic you see the Note 9? Well i can easily do that for iPhones as well. The new iPhones is like a Galaxy S9, but while lacking MOST of the both software and hardware features. It's also not shocking that you would would downplay Samsung and fanboy about Apple, it's what you do.

Lol. You're an imbecile. The Note is always better than the S.

Ah, more tears that won't change the fact that it's the best phablet there is.

I have a Note 8, and if I wanted to, I’d simply buy both. If Apple releases a 6.5 inch iPhone, I’m buying it.

Right trex. That’s a device I’ve been waiting for from Apple, and no PA user is gonna persuade me into not buying it. It drops, I purchase, case closed.

Ios sucks plus it will be super f**king overpriced especially if you live outside the us. If you really need the best performance then look out for the huawei mate 20 which will have a 7nm processor.

I live in Las Vegas, and can afford to buy what I want, cause I work like a man should. My X is expensive too, but I have one. When the X Plus comes out, I’ll buy it, and sell my X...recouping some money. I always get the flagship Galaxy, and iPhone.
