Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Rumours
Can you wait for a few more months for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 release date? That’s the big question regarding people holding out for Samsung’s top of the line smartphone.
As always, the hype has started to build up and rumours are started to spread for the new Samsung flagship device the Note 9.
As per the information that we have encountered up-till now it is as follows
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: Release date
The Samsung Galaxy Note series launches in the latter half of the year by tradition. The Galaxy Note 9 is therefore not expected to arrive until late summer 2018.
Its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 8, was revealed on 23 August 2017 and hit shelves on 15 September, with the disastrous Note 7 launching around a similar time.
We’d therefore expect the Note 9 to be available around the middle of September 2018, though no specific dates have been rumoured as yet and nor are they likely to be for a few months.
Note 9 in-screen fingerprint sensor
The biggest Samsung Galaxy Note 9 rumor relates to its fingerprint scanner, which could be built directly into the screen. It’s the long-awaited feature we’re still waiting to see in a mainstream smartphone, and not in demo form or just in China.
A recent rumor suggests Samsung is testing multiple in-screen solutions and will probably use one of them, a move which could also apparently allow room for a larger battery in the Note 9.
That tallies with a source who’s said the Note 9 will have both an in-screen scanner and a big 3,850mAh battery.
However, a slightly earlier rumor points to the in-screen fingerprint sensor skipping the Note 9, just like it did on the S9 and S9 Plus, Note 8 and S8 and S8 plus before. There’s reason to believe it’ll show up on the Galaxy X (Galaxy 10 next year, however).
Both Samsung and Apple have been rumored to be working on this but failed to achieve it in time for their most recent handsets, pushing Samsung to move the scanner to a sub-optimal position on the back of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8, while Apple ditched it altogether from the iPhone X.
There’s hopeful news on the subject in the form of a Samsung’s patent, showing a handset with a scanner built into the screen. Supposedly it would digitally show where users need to place their finger, and could potentially provide vibrations as feedback. Vivo has showcased exactly this tech in a phone this year.
Processor and storage
It’s unclear what Samsung would use the chip for, but it could potentially speed up certain functions of the phone.
It’s almost certainly going to have a large curved Super AMOLED display, an S Pen stylus and at least 6GB of RAM. The internal storage should start at 128GB given that Samsung bills this as an enterprise class smartphone. The S8 Plus has 128GB of space in most countries, but just 64GB in the US.
The Note 9 is also likely to sport the top-end Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 chipset, exactly like we see in the S9 and S9 Plus.
However, there are rumors that Samsung is working on an Exynos 9820 chipset. That could bring about faster speeds or, more likely in our minds, HDR video recording. This feature is already supported by the Snapdragon 845, but noticeably absent from all S9 devices across the board, likely because the Exynos 9810 doesn’t support it. With new Android phones, like the Sony Xperia XZ2 having HDR video recording, Samsung needs to play catchup.
As you know, the Galaxy S9 looks very much like the S8, so don’t expect anything drastically different in the Galaxy Note 9.
Expect very slim bezels at the top and bottom of the display for an almost all-screen front, along with a premium build. We’re not expecting a “notch” like the iPhone X, upcoming iPhone XI and others – that just doesn’t appear to be something that Samsung is prepared to countenance.
As per the updates up-till now Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is going to be a fantastic device and will gain Samsung a lot of sales and i hope the rumours that are there in the market must be true for the real deal. But at last we are expecting from Samsung is to provide these
1. An in-screen scanner
2. Room-filling sound
3. Better Bixby
4. Two-day battery life
5. Improved face scanning
6. A similar price
7. Even less bezel
If Samsung would able to give these in Note 9 then again it will become the best selling flagship Android phone.
