Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Confirmed to Launch on August 9

Samsung has confirmed that it will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 9 at an UnPacked event on August 9. The company has sent out press invites for the same and the invitation hints at the arrival of the Note 9 in yellow colour. The August 9th launch date was earlier reported by Bloomberg, but it’s not being confirmed by the South Korean itself. In other news, the Note 9 was recently spotted at the FCC site, hinting at imminent launch, but it will be only unveiled a good 40 days later from now. The Galaxy Note 9 may not boast any massive upgrades over the Galaxy Note 8, and the situation will mostly be like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S8, in terms of changes.


Samsung is already rumoured to launch the Galaxy Note 9 in various colour options, including the teased yellow colour. The other colour options for the smartphone include- Black, Blue, Brown, Gray and Lavender. The Galaxy Note 8 arrived in Midnight Black, Maple Gold, Orchid Gray and Deep Sea Blue colour options, while the Galaxy S9 was launched in Midnight Black, Titanium Gray, Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, Burgundy Red and Sunrise Gold. We should rule out the possible arrival of Note 9 in at least six colours.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will pack the S Pen, for which the Note lineup of devices exists. The hardware inside will remain same as the Galaxy S9 and S9+: Snapdragon 845 SoC, up to 6GB of RAM, dual rear cameras and Infinity Display. Samsung is planning to include a 6.4-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display on the Note 9.

We might see a massive 4000mAh battery inside the Note 9, up from the 3300mAh unit we saw on the Note 8. Samsung recently introduced ISOCELL Plus technology which is touted to capture more light than ISOCELL technology. The Note 9 could be the first smartphone to have this feature, so expect better cameras on the flagship smartphone when compared to the Galaxy S9+.

The Galaxy Note 9 will not have an in-display fingerprint scanner. Instead, the scanner will be placed on the rear side itself. Going by the renders, the phone will look similar to the Galaxy Note 8 with some cosmetic changes and yes, we might see the Bixby hardware button going away because Samsung is reportedly stopping the development of Bixby and laying off the workforce.
