A couple of days back, Samsung announced its greatest and latest smartphones “Galaxy S9” and “Galaxy S9+”. Both devices house the new Samsung Exynos 9810 chip. Expectedly, there’s no word on the Galaxy Note 9 that we are assuming to come out this summer. We have to wait a bit longer for this beast of a phone, but from the Galaxy S9 launches, there are numerous clues on what to expect, so it’s well worth a watch.
Here we have gathered everything e.g. Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review, release date, rumors, and specs. So let’s begin.
We aren’t sure regarding Samsung Galaxy Note 9 release date, but it’s expected to arrive in September thanks to a leak posted on the Chinese social network “Weibo”. However, release date rumors haven’t started yet, but we did see last year’s phone (Note 8) in August and went on sale in September. And we’re expecting the same for Note 9.
And as for Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price, it’s sure to be expensive whenever it does arrive. Last year, the Note 8 retailed for $929/£869/AU$1,499. And without a doubt, we won’t see Samsung lowering the price of Note 9.
Having a scanner on the back of a phone is awkward, right? Won’t it be convenient and the sort of high-tech if it's built into the screen? That’s exactly where Samsung has worked a lot and it’s going to be a great headline feature and of course, it’ll make the Galaxy Note 9 stand out among other handsets.
Earlier, it was rumored that the on-screen fingerprint scanner skipping the Note 9, just like the S9 and S9 Plus, S8 and S8 Plus before. There’s a reason to believe it’s going to show up on the upcoming Galaxy Note X though.
A clear-cut from Samsung at the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) shows that we might be looking at more screen than ever before. The entire front of Note 9 could be a screen and some reports have suggested the Galaxy Note will boast a fingerprint scanner embedded into the display instead of continuing with the lightly awkward rear-mounted positioning on the S8 and S8+.
As far as the display is concerned, if Samsung isn’t capable enough to execute new types screens, we should consider that Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will arrive with similar specifications as for the Note 8 – a 6.3-inches Quad-HD+ (2960 x 1440, 18.5:9 521PPI) super AMOLED Panel. The most exciting rumor by far is that Note 9 will feature a 6.4-inches 4K display.
Bixby got an advance on the Galaxy S9, but it’s most likely to get way smarter on the Note 9. It’s the key feature of this year’s crop of Samsung flagships and it leaves something to be desired when it comes to understanding what you are saying. We wanted it to be a real Google Assistant and Siri rival by the time of the Note 8’s lunch. But despite, great it ends up being we want to be able to remap the unavoidable Bixby button too. As not everyone is going to use it, right?
Whenever a new version of Note series comes on the market, it brings some changes to what the S Pen can do, but the Note 9 could bring an even better S Pen. “We’re already looking up how to access the development of the next Note by figuring out the latest model and looking for ways to improve upon signature features e.g. S Pen”. Said by Samsung Executives.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was the first flagship smartphone offered a dual-rear camera setup. And that feature quickly made its way over the S9+ as well. Though competitors such as Huawei, LG and Apple are jumping on the bandwagon a long time beforehand, but could the Note 9 be the same as the upcoming Huawei P20 Pro and house a triple camera or will it stick with two?
Rumors are kind of skimpy this time around, but some reports have shown Samsung is working on a 16MP camera along with an f/1.4 aperture. A 16MP sensor was used by Samsung in Note 5 before switching to the dual-pixel 12MP lens on Note 7. So an MP bump would be a big deal.
Samsung is been traditional with the size of the battery in the Note 8 (3300mAh) understandably given what happened with Note 7. However, the Galaxy Note 9 won’t be too far off this with USB Type-C for charging and both Quick Charging, as well as wireless charging, supported.
There is a wide list of fantastic things about the Galaxy Note 8, but its speakers aren’t among them. The Note 8 is loaded with a single bottom-firing speaker, as yet the Note 9 we are looking for at least two speakers to be positioned on the front of the phone. So the sound will travel towards you clearly when you’re looking at the screen.
The Galaxy Note 9 is far away from launch meaning there’s not to go on as yet. Although it won’t doubt change over the coming months, especially now we have the S9 and S9+ around. We’ll definitely update the feature as soon as any reports or rumors appear surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 but as of now, you shouldn’t expect anything official until the end of the summer.
