Galaxy Note 9: A Preview of Speculations

30 July, 2018 Samsung

The launch of the Galaxy Note 9 is set on August 9, with sales beginning on August 24 in most regions, but there's little left to the imagination as we have all but seen the smartphone officially. As we inch closer to the launch date, here is a short list of everything we know about the Galaxy Note 9 so far, along with some allegedly real images of the next Note.

Bigger Battery

Although the battery debacle of the Galaxy Note 7 still likely haunts Samsung's memories, they are probably not going to back out this year because of that. Samsung made that part clear by releasing a teaser which directly declared that the Note 9 will have a much better battery life, hopefully due to the presence of a bigger battery inside.

Similar Design to the Note 8

Well, if you thought that the Note 8 was a beautiful design, then you should be happy to know that Samsung is sticking with it this year as well. Apart from the change in internals, a better-placed fingerprint sensor and a 0.4-inch bigger display, the Note 9 will look almost exactly the same as the Note 8. This isn't a surprise, given that the S9 and S9+ also followed the design language of their predecessors.

Bluetooth Stylus

The stylus, aka the S-Pen will likely bring the most amount of innovation to the Note family this year. Rumor has it that it will support Bluetooth, but how Samsung will make use of that (apart from a few remote functionalities such as playing media) feature, remains to be seen. The stylus will definitely come in gold, but could also come in red and black as alternative options.

Power Under the Hood

You can expect the same power under the hood of the Galaxy Note 9, as that of the S9+, which is to say a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845/Exynos 9810 SoC,coupled with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB/512GB internal storage.


Although minor improvements are not out of the question yet, the Note 9 will in all likelihood, sport the same dual camera as the Galaxy S9+. Given that the S9 Plus has a very capable pair of shooters with dual aperture options, that's not bad news at all.

Price and Release

The exact price will vary, depending on where you are buying it from, but overall, it is expected that Samsung will put a halt to the ever-increasing price of smartphones every year by keeping the price of the Note 9 almost the same or very close the price tag sported by the Note 8 last year. Whetehr this is true or just wishful thinking, remains to be seen of course! As far as the launch and release is concerned, August 9 will be the launch date as that's when Samsung has called the press in for the Samsung Unpacked event in NYC. Preorders will begin within a week or maybe even the very next day, while it should start going on sale by August 24 in North America. Other regions may have to wait till September to get their hands on the Galaxy Note 9 though.

Most of these "rumors" are almost facts at this point, so you can rely on what you just read. Nevertheless, it's never to late for old Sammy to surprise us with a few hidden tricks!
