Samsung returned the Note series to prominence with the launch of the Note 8 last year, but all eyes will on the Galaxy Note 9 which will be unveiled at an official event on August 8th. Typically, Samsung launching their flagships three weeks after the unveiling and nothing suggests they’ll do anything different with the Note 9 launch.
The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be the most expensive smartphone to-date, eclipsing the launch price of the Note 8 last year. With the price tag that’s expected to top the $1000 mark, it’ll be interesting to see if loyal consumers will remain on Samsung’s most expensive bandwagon.
While nothing has been official on the Galaxy Note 9 specs, we can speculate we’ll see a better camera, more RAM and faster processor. We’re already hearing rumors on a slightly larger display from 6.32-inches of the Note 8 to 6.38-inches of the Note 9. While marginal, it gives consumers what they want, at least those who believe bigger is always better.
Other Galaxy Note 9 rumors suggest we’ll see a Quad HD Amoled display with a 2560×1440 resolution like the Note 8. It’s certain we’ll see dual curved edges, fingerprint scanner, retina display and of course, the Note’s trademark stylus.
Other Note 9 rumors which have yet to be confirmed include the Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 processor depending on where you live, 6GB RAM and expandable storage.
Each year, Samsung has been able to distance themselves from Apple with their upsized flagship. With Sammy debuting their latest Note ahead of the Plus-Sized iPhone, they’ll have bragging rights once again.
We’ll bring you the latest confirmations on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 after the unveiling August 8th.
