Galaxy Note 9 – release date and specifications
With nearly a month left until release, Galaxy Note 9 remains almost secret, with recent revelations confirming fears so far
Illustrated with what might be the list on the retail box and one of the presentation images that will appear on the product page, Galaxy Note 9 comes with an infinity display screen of 6.3 "uncut at the top, such as curved and vertical edges with a very narrow frame.
With no design surprises, the Galaxy Note 9 is much like the Note 8 predecessor. The device features the Bixby key on the side and a series of sensors above the screen, including an iris scanner. There is also a fingerprint reader, but Samsung chose not to risk too much by opting for a conventional sensor placed on the back of the phone.
The picture also appears to show the familiar "lines" for the antenna, visible above the screen, on the side frame. Necessary for radio signal propagation, these are especially suited to the back cover phones with a full metal cover. However, the availability of wireless charging support excludes this possibility, the construction of Galaxy Note 9 being rather a combination of glass and metal
Prepared in two editions, codenamed SM-N9600 and SM-N9608, Galaxy Note 9 is expected to use the same pair of Snapdragon 845 / Exynos 9810 chipsets as the Galaxy S9 series. Preliminary specification specification lists a generous battery of 3850-4000 mAh.
Traditionally, Samsung unveils the next Galaxy Note series in late August or early September, eventually synchronizing the launch event with IFA Berlin. If so, all clues point to an event announced by Samsung on August 9, 2018, in New York. Given that the pre-order campaign will start shortly, it is probably the official Galaxy Note 9 release date.
